KATHMANDU: The government has made it clear that it would be sought political and legal remedies against Indian media circulating propaganda on Nepal and the government.
At a press conference held at Singha Durbar on Thursday, government Spokesperson Dr. Yubaraj Khatiwada said that the government would seek political and legal remedies against the Indian media for disseminating news that jeopardizes the nation, nationality, sovereignty and self-respect of Nepalis.
“We also request not to disseminate news that infringes sovereignty and self-respect of Nepalis,” he said, “This includes the media of neighboring countries. We might seek both political and legal remedies,” said Khatiwada.
Spokesperson Khatiwada said that diplomatic means would also be mobilized to curb the misinformation being spread about Nepal by the Indian media.
He said that the government wants the media to be disciplined and disseminate only accurate news instead of enforcing a ban.
