On Friday, Union Minister, M. Venkaiah Naidu, slammed critics who have been holding the government responsible for curbing the freedom of press in the country. He said that that the media is free to express its view under the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) rule.

He further said that the press has not been restricted under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rule. Naidu added that the press was suppressed only under the UPA rule.

“The government is committed to the total freedom of press and expression and there is no gag on it in the country. The only time media was gagged was during the Emergency. There is no such thing now,” said the minister.

“That the agenda of the government is to create awareness about the development initiatives undertaken that had the ability to transform lives of people and fulfil the aspirations of emerging New and Young India,” he added.
