Nepal Government Decide to stop broadcasting of Indian news channels

The Federation has drawn the attention of the government to refute the ongoing wrong media propaganda spread by the Indian media about Nepal's Head of the Government and the Chinese envoy to Nepal and to take strict and severe steps to make sure such incidents never occur again. Also, the Vice-President of Mega-max TV said that Indian TV channels were making exaggerated and uncontrolled propaganda about Nepal and had recently aired objectionable topics by adding the names of the Prime Minister and the Chinese Ambassador.

KATHMANDU: The Federation of Nepalis Journalists (FNJ) has condemned the distorted, false and exaggerated information spawned and widespread by some Indian media about Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and Chinese Ambassador to Nepal Hou Yanqi of late.

“The lowly publicity being made by some Indian media about Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and the Chinese Envoy to Nepal is deplorable. It is an instance of yellow journalism and the FNJ finds it’s against the universal values and spirit of the press. The FNJ condemns such untruthful and wrong publicity of the Indian media,” reads the press statement released by the umbrella organization of the country.
