Shimla: Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister PK Dhumal on Saturday described "paid news" as a "threat" to democracy and asked the media to maintain neutrality to protect its credibility.

Speaking at the launch of a new TV channel "Himachal Aajkal", Dhumal asked the media to play the role of a "real watchdog" and help reinforce moral values in society.

He hoped the new channel would go a long way in projecting the state in the "right perspective and penetrate into new areas waiting for exposure".

He said Himachal Pradesh has emerged as role model of development and Has won 52 national and international awards for development in various fields in the four years.
