- Post Report, Kathmandu

Jan 19, 2018-

The authority at President’s Office on Friday barred journalists working for private media houses from covering the swearing-in of newly appointed governors of seven provinces.

Only the media persons and photographers from government-owned media houses were allowed access to the President’s Office in Sheetal Niwas to cover the swearing-in ceremony. Photo journalists laid down their cameras at the entrance of Sheetal Niwas in protest against the restriction.

This is not the first time the private media persons were not allowed access inside the President's Office.
