Pakistan Press Foundation expresses concern over Nepal government’s efforts for new media policy
Pakistan Press Foundation (PPF), in a letter to Prime Minister of Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli expressed concern over Nepal government’s efforts for the new media policy.
PPF Secretary General Owais Aslam Ali in his letter urged government of Nepal to ensure press freedom, a broader media policy and transform state-owned media (Radio Nepal & Nepal Television) into public service broadcasting.
He said the Nepalese government formed committee to study overall media and formulate a new media policy. However, it is yet to take full shape. Neither the government nor the Ministry or the committee have sought suggestions and held consultations in this regard with the civil society.
