Punjab Governor & UT Administrator
VP Singh Badnore
The Tribune is truly the voice of the people in the region as over the past 140 years it has witnessed and chronicled the evolution of India as a sovereign state. The British rule and its atrocities, the daring of the freedom fighters, the pain of Partition, the emergence of hope with Independence, the making of a new India and its growth into a global force — this paper has experienced all of it first-hand.
The Tribune upholds the formidable legacy of its visionary founder Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, following the journalistic values and maintaining a balanced, objective and impartial coverage of events. No wonder this paper is among the most respected in the region. As a reader of The Tribune for the past 10 years, I can vouch for the high standard of journalism maintained in its unbiased stance, restraint and temperance. It is amazing that this Grand Old Lady of Punjab has been a trusted news source of five generations in the region.
My congratulations to the team of The Tribune on the 140th anniversary. With its ethos of service to the masses, I am confident that it will achieve many more milestones over the next several years while being a torchbearer of free, fair and fearless journalism.
