Apni Party terms Govt. action against KNS ‘unjustified’


Instead of facilitating their smooth function, authorities creating more trouble for media outlets in J&K: G.H Mir

SRINAGAR, October 17: Apni Party senior vice president Ghulam Hassan Mir on Saturday termed the government action against Kashmir News Service (KNS) as unjustified and unwarranted move which needs to be undone at the earliest.

In a statement issued here, Mir said that there is no justification behind the Estate department’s operation in which the KNS office has been locked. “This new agency is an old and reputed news gathering agency in J&K. Instead of facilitating smooth functioning of the media outlets in J&K, the present dispensation seems to be creating more troubles for them,” the Apni Party senior vice president remarked.

Mir urged the Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha to intervene into the matter and address the sufferings of the KNS management and the editorial staff that has been rendered space less by the Estates department through its unprecedented action.

“Even if there were some cognizable issues, normally, the Estates department should have served a prior notice to the KNS management to explain its position. Taking an impromptu action is unwarranted under law and the concerned department should undo its action by handing over the possession of the government allotted office to the KNS staff,” he demanded.
