Govt warns action against those criticizing foreign nations, development projects
KATHMANDU, September 5: The Ministry of Home Affairs has warned general public and media houses not to pass negative comments about the development projects funded or supported by foreign nations.
Issuing a press statement recently, the Ministry expressed a serious concern over negative comments being passed about foreign countries, foreign nationals and their properties in social media and other media channels.
The home ministry has also maintained that the government is monitoring such activities and has warned against those involved in such activities.
Following such a directive from the government, huge public outcry has erupted against the government. Social media platforms are being flooded, accusing the government of paving a path to endorse the Millennium Corporate Challenge (MCC) of the United States of America (USA). Some also view the government’s move as a policy to stop anti-India protests regarding the Darchula incident.
