Journalists being punished for not praising Modi regime: Omar

35

In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference President, Omar Abdullah, has said that journalists are being punished in the territory for not praising the Modi government and its proxies.

According to Kashmir Media Service, talking to reporters in Srinagar, Omar Abdullah said, the government should first do something to earn praise then expect the scribes to write it. It is unfortunate that journalists are being punished for not toeing the government line.

The NC leader also expressed dismay over the power crisis that has gripped occupied Jammu and Kashmir. In Kashmir power is snapped just before Sehri and Iftar times, he said, adding that why not in day time.—INP
