Bhaktapur, June 30: Federation of Nepali Journalists (FNJ) President Mahendra Bista has stated that the newly launched Online Media Directive-2073 should be scrapped, as it tends to infringe the freedom of press and speech as stipulated by the new constitution.

At a programme organized by the FNJ Bhaktapur Chapter on Wednesday afternoon on the occasion of National Paddy Day, President Bista clarified that the Federation was not in favor of amendment of the Directive. “It is appropriate in the democracy to regulate press but the government should not try to impose any of its control over the freedom of press in the name of regulation”, he said.  RSS
