Chief Minister said that the news channels work as a bridge for the exchange of information between the public and the government. Uttarakhand is a small hill state, in which there are many such areas which are very remote and inaccessible. In this way the role of the media becomes very important. He said that the media should keep in mind that the news is based on facts. It should be seen that pilgrims and tourists visiting the Char Dham Yatra should get the correct information available in the state. He said that after the Kedarnath disaster, there has been a lot of change in the situation today. Our tourists are reaching remote areas of Uttarakhand. Tourism will play an important role in Uttarakhand’s economy in the future. Chief Minister said that the state government has taken some steps to attract the film industry, due to which the film industry is also getting attracted towards Uttarakhand today. In the recent past, many films have been shot in Uttarakhand. Chief Minister also talked about the news channels extending their support to the state government in propagating about the beauty, art and culture of Uttarakhand.
