Nepal Government remains committed to ensure democracy, press freedom and human rights, says Prime Minister KP Sharma.
Oli made this statement at a recent meeting with the newly-elected working committee of Nepal Media Society held in Kathmandu.
Speaking at the meet, Oli lauded media’s role in keeping the government in check and increasing public awareness on social issues and governance.
At the same time, Oli also expressed dissatisfaction at some acts of media pertaining to publishing of information.
“Do you think Maitighar Mandala is a proper place for protest assembly and rally? How can the government be branded as anti-civilian freedom?” he questioned citing one of the recent issues in the country.
“The things written now should be true and relevant even after 10 years down the line,” he told the press community of Nepal.
At an end note, the Prime Minister congratulated the newly-elected committee of the Nepal Media Society. Chairman Shubha Shankar Kandel is among other key dignitaries present on the occasion.
