New Delhi, May 22 (IANS) India has a very free press and an increasingly active civil society movement, but they do put pressure for early action and sometimes these leads to hasty judgement, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said Wednesday.
Speaking at a function at his official residence to mark four years of the United Progressive Alliance-II government, the prime minister said: “We are the world’s largest democracy with a very free press and an increasingly active civil society movement.”
“These are our strengths. But they do put pressure for early and decisive action on all these fronts. This sometimes leads to impatience and hasty judgement,” he said.
