12/02/2018

Nuwakot, Dec. 2: The Federation of Nepali Journalists (FNJ) has concluded that the role of local units was paramount for promotion of the media with small scale of investment.
At an interaction programme organized by Media with Small Scale Investment Welfare Promotion Committee of FNJ on the theme 'Role of the Local Units in Promotion of the Media with Small Scale Investment', the participants univocally urged the government to pay attention to the promotion of small scale media.
Likewise, the FNJ on Sunday handed over its 7-point Kakani Commitment Paper to the Minister for Federal Affairs and General Administration Lal Bahadur Pandit.
The Commitment Paper issued Saturday draws the government's attention towards doubling the tariff for advertisements for public-interest that has been provided to the newspapers by the government and the rules and acts to be formulated at the provincial, local and federal level should be friendly towards media with small scale investment among others.
Furthermore, the Commitment Paper also has demanded with the government to set up Media Development Fund separately in federal, provincial and local level for the promotion of the media run in the respective levels with small scale investments.
Minister Pandit asserted that it was challenging to book the fake journalists who had obtained the media's identity card but were not doing any good as a journalist.
Chairperson of the Delegated Management and Governance Assurance Committee under the Federal Parliament Ram Narayan Bidari argued that the small scale media would be promoted when there would be an Act mandating the local units to compulsorily provide advertisement in public interest in the local media run with small scale of investment.
Likewise, FNJ President Govinda Acharya pressed for the government to give due space to the small scale media. RSS
