New Delhi: The Indian National Congress (INC) on Wednesday announced that publication of newspaper ‘National Herald’ and 'Navjivan' will resume with Neelabh Mishra's appointment as Editor-in-Chief.
The National Herald will resume its publication eight years after being abruptly taken off publication. Reports say that senior journalist Neelabh Mishra will steer the National Herald and Navjivan as Editor-in-Chief.
"The Associated Journals Limited (AJL) had decided in January to re-launch its newspapers, the National Herald, Quami Awaj and Navjivan. The process for implementation is on," AICC Treasurer Motilal Vora told reporters last month.
The National Herald had to be taken off shelf due to its growing unpopularity and financial constraints. The newspaper was launched in 1938 by Jawaharlal Nehru before he became the Prime Minister of India.
