O Panneerselvam, Deputy Chief Minister
I am very happy to know that News Today has completed 37 years of service and is entering into its 38th year.
The publication which was inaugurated by former Chief Minister M G Ramachandran was very much liked and read by former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.
The publication echoes the voice of the people. It has been delivering unadulterated news to the public even after facing several threats and hurdles.
Though technology has changed the way how news is shared, News Today has been able to hold its ground and acts as a bridge between the people and the government. I wish the publication all the very best for a bright future.

News Today was ably guided by the principles of its founder T R Ramaswami. He was a noted journalist and an exceptional writer. He had so much affection for me personally. He also moved closely with former Chief Minister M G Ramachandran.
MGR used to read News Today everyday. Many pathbreaking and interesting articles have been published in the newspaper. Many leading journalists who are shining in print and electronic media were trained at News Today. .
Following the path of his father, Editor T R Jawahar has been leading the paper in an efficient manner. I wish that NT celebrates golden jubilee.

I salute the founder T R Ramaswami for his farsightedness in establishing the News Today, which is 37-year-old today.
I congratulate his illustrious son, T R Jawahar for his continuous efforts to keep the newspaper intact to this day in every aspect. I wish all those who are associated with News Today all success.
