The world press freedom day , notified by the United Nations (UN) general assembly, as a calendar event every year on May 3 was observed today through discussions on TV channels , seminars and talks across the country. In Tripura also a number of channels hosted talks shows on the occasion with comments from eminent journalists. The world press freedom day had been declared as an annual event by the UN to raise the awareness level of people regarding the importance of press or media freedom. 

Every year a theme is declared by the UN for discussion and discourse but the current year's theme is not yet known amidst the ongoing pandemic worries. In 2020 the main themes of discussion were 'Journalism without fear and favour' and 'Safety of men and women journalists' and 'Free journalism without political and commercial influences'. Many eminent observers in the media pointed out the growing threat to journalism in third world countries including India where political pressure on media and victimisation is very high. What this menace can remove is social consciousness and an alert citizenry , many observers opined.
