The Congress will relaunch the National Herald newspaper, which was founded by former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, in Bengaluru today.

Vice President Hamid Ansari will launch a commemorative edition of the National Herald to mark the 70th year of Independence, in the presence of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi at Ambedkar Bhavan on Millers Road in Bengaluru.

This event will be followed by an official launch of the edition and formal print re-launch of the newspaper in New Delhi on June 20 by President Pranab Mukherjee.

The paper will be published weekly from New Delhi.

The online web edition has been functional since last year and is being headed by Neelabh Misra as editor.

The print edition of the newspaper was originally launched from Lucknow September 9, 1938. Nehru was the editor of the publication. 

The paper was later shut down in 2008 due to financial constraints.
