The Tribune Group on Sunday launched its Bhatinda (Punjab) edition. This edition will be circulated in the Malwa belt in Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.
The Tribune Group already publishes five editions i.e. Chandigarh, New Delhi, Jalandhar, Himachal Pradesh and Haryana.
‘The Bathinda edition has been launched not to change the profile of the newspaper but to share the joys and sorrows of the people of the Malwa region. Punjab has remained in the forefront in ending the food shortage in the country. Though the area lagged behind in industry, one can notice the new climate of big industry coming to the Malwa region. The refinery, which is coming up here, would lead to more industry being set up in the area’ H.K., Dua , Editor-in-Chief, The Tribune said .
H.K.Dua said the Malwa belt was facing many problems, including those of female foeticide, drugs, health care and education that will receive special attention of The Tribune which was engaged in the service of the people. The Bathinda edition will also focus on developments in South Asia and neighbouring Pakistan while giving full coverage to national developments. The new edition will be dedicated to the farmers, soldiers and people of the Malwa region, Dua added.
