CHENNAI: Narendra Modi on Tuesday said citizen reporting could be an important tool in sharing and dissemination of success stories of individuals in the country and could also be of immense help in directing relief in times of crisis, or natural disasters. “Every citizen with a mobile phone can be an ally of the media,” the prime minister said while speaking at the platinum jubilee celebrations of Dhina Thanthi daily. Modi said “Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat is a key area where media can play an important role. Every day, newspapers can write one simple sentence in the language of publication, along with its translation, and trans-literation, in all major Indian languages. At the year’s end, the readers of the newspaper will have been exposed to 365 such simple sentences, in all major Indian languages. Imagine the positive impact this step can create.”
