Patrika celebrated the fifth Foundation Day of its establishment at Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh with a slew of activities on May 25, 2013. The day saw agents and clients of the paper celebrate the occasion in their own way.

Speaking on the occasion, Arvind Kalia, Vice President, Marketing, Patrika Group said, “Patrika’s presence in MP is both timely and relevant.
