IT gives me great pleasure to know that The Tribune newspaper is celebrating its 140th anniversary. The Tribune started its glorious journey on February 2, 1881, from Lahore. After Partition, the first issue of the paper was published from Shimla (then Simla) on September 25, 1947. The office was shifted from Shimla first to Ambala and then to its present place of publication, Chandigarh.
Over these years, The Tribune has always maintained high standards of journalistic ethics and become the voice of the people of the region. The newspaper has unfailingly upheld the glorious legacy of this great institution which has made immense contribution to the freedom struggle and thereafter to making a modem India.
I am sure that The Tribune would continue its mission to provide unbiased, authentic and reliable information to the readers in future also.
l wish all success to the further endeavours of The Tribune and grand success to the 140th anniversary issue.
