BIRGUNJ: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal 'Prachanda' today said that national media got his recent statement on media ownership, all wrong. Prachanda, who arrived here to inaugurate the training programme of the UCPN-Maoist-affiliated Bhojpura State Council, said that he made comments on the global trend of media ownership but national media thought it otherwise. Federation of Nepali Journalists and Media organisations flayed PM's speech after he blamed the media houses of being run by the smugglers. Prachanda also said that the protest against the federalism was meaningless.
