KEG appreciates PCI for taking cognizance of complaint
Council issues notice to JK government and Information Department

Srinagar, March 15, (Scoop News)-Kashmir Editors Guild, (KEG) expresses its gratitude to the Press Council of India, (PCI) for taking cognizance of the complaint filed by it over stopping government advertisements to two major dailies, ‘Greater Kashmir and ‘Kashmir Reader’, published from Srinagar, Kashmir.

It is a welcome step by the PCI as measures like curbing free flow of information tend to undermine the freedom of press, besides putting the media organizations through whole lot of trouble, KEG said in a statement issued here.

A notice for statement in reply has been issued to the government of Jammu and Kashmir and the state information department by the PCI after major newspapers of Kashmir protested by running blank front pages on March 10 against the government’s decision of stopping government advertisements to the two dailies.

The KEG has been requesting the authorities to at least offer the organizations a reason for why the advertisements were stopped, without intimation and reason. However, there was no reply from the government over the issue.
