SUBSCRIBE NT PRINT REFER WRITE TO EDITOR
Suresh Acharya, president of Federation of Nepali Journalists, has released a statement that reads, ?FNJ is saddened by the irregularities that are taking place in the import of newsprint. As soon as FNJ came to know that paper for printing newspapers was not available, it got in touch with the ministry of information and the National Trading Corporation and asked them to make the paper immediately available. Since the chairman of NTC promised to import paper at once, FNJ is hopeful that paper will be available quickly. If this scarcity prevails for another week then FNJ will be forced to take action. FNJ requests the concerned bodies to supply paper as soon as possible. If this period of scarcity remains FNJ will be forced to take drastic action.?
