Kavre, April 27
Minister of Communications and Information Gokul Prasad Baskota today accused majority of media of giving least priority to development works taking place in the country. Baskota also accused the media of wasting its energy in criticising the government.
Releasing a book penned by campaigner of cooperative movement Dilip Sharma at Kavre’s Dhulikhel, Minister Baskota slammed the media for not adequately covering development works.
He claimed that television channels and newspapers had deluded people by prioritising negative news. Baskota urged people and others, who waste their time on social media, to step out of their homes and travel to villages and highways to see development works.
“Those who create a hullabaloo on social media and television are limited to the virtual world and are unaware of the development works being carried out in the country,”
Baskota stated. He urged all and sundry to move ahead with a positive vision and mindset.
