Commenting on the present situation of the media in India, NewsMobile Founder and Editor-in-Chief Saurabh Shukla said that democracy dies when a free media dies.
Speaking on a Republic TV debate show on Friday night, Shukla said, “Democracy is being muzzled by vendetta loving politicians who are running a vendetta against journalists. Democracy dies when a free media dies.”
