Role of Media in Good Governance

Bhukya Padmavathi


Power of speech is a bliss to man. It is a pleasure to listen to people and to express the feelings of one and another on good things. Here, oratory is an art. Freedom of Expression has always been emphasized as a special right for the democratic, economic functioning of a society. This is being included in Art.19 (1) (a) of our Indian Constitution i.e. the freedom of the press. Media plays a vital role in part of each and every human shall be discussing about the issues relating to the responsibilities of the media in good governance, thus media has become more powerful and prominent. In India, media have played a significant role by providing information to the citizens about social and economic evils. Of course, a citizen cannot personally gather and collect information to form his/her opinions even though having reasonable restrictions as provided in Art.19 (2) of the constitution. Freedom of speech can be restricted only in the interests of the security of state, friendly relations with the foreign states, public order, decency or morality, or in relation to contempt of court, defamation or incitement to an offence.
