“Press Council should take up the issue with the J&K Government”
New Delhi,March 11 (Scoop News)- The Delhi Union of Journalists condemns the move by the Jammu & Kashmir administration, currently under Central rule, to stop government advertisements to two local newspapers Greater Kashmir and Kashmir Reader.
DUJ in a statement applaud the solidarity shown by 13 newspapers that protested the arbitrary move by carrying blank front pages on Sunday March 10, 2019.
DUJ expressed their solidarity with the Kashmir Editors Guild that held a protest at the Press Club.The Jammu & Kashmir Government has issued no statement or explanation for its sudden withdrawal of advertisements. It seems to be an arm-twisting exercise to punish newspapers that do not publish news and views in accordance with the government’s wishes. It also sends out a warning to other newspapers to toe the government line or perish,Said in a statement.
The allocation of government advertising cannot be an arbitrary matter, it must follow guidelines and due process.
They demand that the Press Council should take up the issue with the J&K Government and ensure that advertisements to these newspapers be restored with immediate effect.
