During a courtesy call paid by newly appointed Executive Chairperson of RSS, Dharmendra Jha, at the official residence of the Prime Minister at Baluwatar today, the Prime Minister advised the organization to disseminate positive and creative news in order to boost the spirit of the people.

Advising the RSS to make its service prompt, qualitative and reliable through diverse news, the Prime Minister expressed commitment that the government would provide necessary support to enrich it.
Prime Minister Deuba further pledged that there would be no unnecessary interventions from the government in the RSS business and stated the incumbent government is always in favour of freedom of the Press.
