Cabinet passes directive on distribution of adverts
The Cabinet has approved a directive on proportional distribution of government advertisement to all media outlets.
A meeting of the Cabinet took the decision on Thursday amid national and international criticism of the government for not doing enough to provide security for mediapersons. Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai had recently said the government was preparing to give a boost to the media sector.
Similarly, the Cabinet has decided to provide Rs 50,000 each to members of the Nepali women's football, which came second in the recently concluded South Asian Women's football tournament. Nepalnews.com
