How time flies! Lokmat Nagpur edition has stepped into 50th year of publication. Nobody knows how time passed. Lokmat as an institution has witnessed many ups and downs. It has seen a great history. The golden jubilee logo of Lokmat has been crafted exquisitely. I feel heartfelt joy in dedicating this logo to the public. I am confident that our relationship with Lokmat, which started in Balasaheb Thackeray’s era, will continue nonstop for the next 50 years. Lokmat will complete 100 years in a style and being the chief minister I offer my best wishes on behalf of the people of Maharashtra.
— Uddhav Thackeray,
Chief Minister, Maharashtra
Lokmat has not just witnessed the era of democracy being strengthened in the country in the last 50 years but also actively participated in it. That’s why it has become the voice of the people. Launched by veteran freedom fighter Jawaharlal Darda, Lokmat has become the most potent voice of Maharashtra and Goa. Lokmat should explore other media platforms to expand its reach to other states. The media should understand the difference between those who work for the society and those who do politics and accordingly the message should be communicated to the people. Lokmat has been doing this duty very successfully. Hearty congratulations to Lokmat group for golden jubilee celebrations.
