He urged the television to voice for those people in the lower ring of the society and to preserve their languages and cultures. The ex-PM also appealed for healthy competition by presenting balance and dignified news content.

Chairperson Dahal said that he was had also fallen victim to disinformation from time to time and urged the media persons to do factual and impartial journalism.
