BANGALORE: The Public Relations Council of India celebrated its 10th anniversary on Saturday.

After the inauguration, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president G Parameshwara said India has come a long way after 67 years of independence. While comparing the country to developed nations, we must also look at how we were earlier and now, he said.

“Earlier, we were dependent on other countries for food grains but after the green revolution, we export food grains. The literacy rate was 35 per cent earlier,  but we have now reached 80 per cent which is a sign of development. Currently, 30 per cent people are below the poverty line in India and we are working towards the betterment of citizens,” he added.

T V Mohandas Pai, Chairman of Manipal Global Education, said the world is changing  and we are now living in the era of Internet. “Technology improves rapidly and is used for both good and bad deeds. Due to technology and social media, the newspaper and television industries are in a slump. Everyone thought social media does not impact anything but it played a major role in the elections,” he said. Many dignitaries were present on the occasion.
