Kathmandu, Aug. 8: Minister for Information and Communications Mohan Bahadur Basnet has directed Nepal Television to project itself as a stringent competitor among other media.
Programmes run and action plan come up with by the state-owned television should have variations and keeping up with the spirit of Federalism, said the minister while speaking at an interaction organised here on Tuesday by the Nepal Television Employees' Association (NTEA) on the theme of 'Nepal Television in Federalism'.
