Katju remark absolutely true: CPI(ML)
Patna: CPI(ML) Bihar state secretary
Nand Kishore Prasad on Saturday described as 'absolutely true' Press
Council of India chairman Justice Markandey Katju's recent
comment on press freedom in Bihar.
"Katju's remarks on freedom of press under attack in
Bihar is absolutely near truth", Prasad said here in a press
The media is passing through the "most bad phase" in
Bihar under Nitish Kumar's rule, he claimed.
The policy on advertisements adopted by the Nitish
Kumar government had adversely affected freedom of expression
as media houses have been 'compelled to bow down before the
government which is most dangerous for democracy', he added.
