NC always serious about media persons’ welfare: Minister KC



3 April, Kathmandu:  Minister for Urban Development Arjun Narshing KC has stated that the Nepali Congress (NC) is always serious when it comes to protecting and promoting the rights of the media persons.

Speaking at a discussion programme with a theme ‘effectiveness of online journalism in Nepal’ organized by Nepal Press Union’s Department of Digital Media in Kathmandu on Sunday, Minister KC lauded the online media as one of the medium of communications for the prompt and swift dissemination of the news.
On the occasion, Online Journalists Association Chairperson Shiva Satyal commented that the newly launched Online Media Operation Directive-2072 was discriminatory to the online media.
Nepal Press Union (NPU) President Badri Sigdel voiced that the new Directive ought to be regulatory, but it was repressive. He also said that the NPU was against the Directive from the day first it was launched.
Senior journalist Harihar Birahi argued that the Nepali journalists were not that laggard compared to the foreign journalists.
He was of the opinion that it was launched either by the ignorant or with the intention to clamp the online media.
