National Herald, Navjivan to resume publication

Tribune News Service

New Delhi, August 31

The Congress today announced the re-launch of National Herald and Navjivan publications with the appointment of former editor of Outlook (Hindi) Neelabh Mishra as the Editor-in-Chief of the two newspapers’ daily and online versions.

In a statement today, Associated Journals, the company founded by former PM Jawaharlal Nehru in 1937 and the firm that used to publish these papers, said, “The AJL has taken steps to resume the publication of its English and Hindi newspapers National Herald and Navjivan. The company has appointed Neelabh Mishra as the Editor-in-Chief for its Hindi and English newspaper and digital properties with immediate effect.” 

“Mishra is a leading editor having previously served as the Editor of Outlook (Hindi). He has done extensive work in areas of research and documentation including for the Right to Information movement and legislation. Mishra shall build and lead the team for both National Herald and Navjivan and their digital and related assets. Both newspapers shall resume publications in the coming month, followed by Quami Aawaz,” it said.

The announcement came four days after a Delhi court again issued notices to Congress president Sonia Gandhi and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi on a fresh petition for additional documents in the matter. The petition was filed by BJP’s Subramanian Swamy who has been pursuing a case of cheating against the Gandhis in this case.

The documents Swamy has sought pertain to authorisation of AJL members to borrow money in excess of its paid-up capital and its free reserve.
