New Delhi: Nepal bans Indian news channels. The ban comes amid allegations of misrepresentation of Nepalese political leaders and the Chinese ambassador to Nepal. Nepal’s Communications Minister Yubraj Kativada has said that Indian channels do not care about Nepal’s sovereignty and dignity and are looking for diplomatic means against them. This was reported by the news agency ANI.
Nepali Cable Operators said signals from Indian news channels had been removed. But Nepal has not made any official announcement in this regard. Experts say such provocations on the part of Nepal are due to Chinese pressure.
