Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Saturday laid the foundation stone for the construction of the building of All India Federation of Master Printers at IMT Manesar, Gurugram.
This building will be constructed on an area of about 1,400 square metre in Sector-2, Manesar. Speaking on the occasion, the CM said it is impossible to imagine publishing newspapers, books, etc. without a printing platform. He said that printing has a 30,000-year-old history.
Khattar said that the importance of printing has not declined over the years. He said that the All India Federation of Master Printers was established 70 years ago and since then there has been a lot of change in the printing techniques.
He said a writer conveys his ideas to the people through his writings. However, writing and publishing have been replaced by digital platforms, but it is necessary to develop both platforms together.
Sharing his life experiences, the CM said he had learnt the printing press work during his school days. He said that presently printing courses are being run in five universities in Haryana. He said that he is pleased that the Association has chosen Haryana to construct its building.
