Roshan Puri, general secretary of the Federation of Nepali Journalists, said that it was ironic that the current government was trying to continue the law brought by the previous government to control the media. He called for the return of such bills, saying that they would not be valid if the laws were passed against the spirit of the right to full press freedom given by the constitution. He stressed on the need for the state and district branches of the Federation of Nepali Journalists to be vigilant as the state governments are also trying to follow the control-oriented laws that the federation is trying to follow.
