The magazine has a collection of articles based on the city. Welcoming the initiative, politicians and distinguished guests hailed the magazine.

People have started to hate politics due to the current scenario, he said. Agreeing with Awhad, Legislative Council Speaker Ramraje Nimbalkar said regardless of political ideology, one should respect others and Lokmat newspaper should play a key role in maintaining harmony in society .
Vijay Darda, chairman of Lokmat Media Group, said the major problem today was that a majority part of society has become callous and lost patience. We should abandon the myopic attitude and adopt a cautious approach. Nowadays, people don’t trust other media, but they still trust print media.
