New Delhi: Addressing the 50th raising day of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), as the chief guest in Ghaziabad Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi issued a stern warning to terrorist forces targeting India, saying the country will not keep suffering forever.
This is the PM’s last public appearance before model code of conduct kicks in as the Election Commission is scheduled to announce poll dates for the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections at 5 pm Sunday.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.
But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
