Nepal Sends Diplomatic Note To India Citing “Fake, Baseless” Content On Indian News Channels
A few days ago, Nepal had banned all private Indian news channels in the country on account of inappropriate reports.
Nepal has sent a new diplomatic note to the Indian government with the aim of urging it to take steps against what it claims to be inappropriate reportage by Indian news channels. The border country has called the content being broadcast on these channels, “fake, baseless and insensitive as well as abusive.” Nepal had banned the transmissions of all private Indian news channels on Thursday for their questionable reports about Prime Minister, KP Sharma Oli.
“Such materials are not only misleading and misinforming but also impair the sense of minimum public decency,” reads the diplomatic note sent to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) via the Embassy of Nepal in New Delhi. It also says that the “smearing campaign unleashed by a section of Indian media has deeply hurt the feelings of Nepali people and persona of Nepali leadership.” There was no immediate reaction from India regarding the ban on private channels.
