Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu and Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on July 19 denied reports about newspapers publications being banned in Kashmir.
According to PTI, the duo spoke to each other on July 18 where Mehbooba assured Naidu that no ban has been imposed on publication of newspapers.
In past three days local newspapers have failed to hit stands in Kashmir, with many reports
alleging that it’s due to government clampdown following widespread protests in the Valley.
Looking at the situation, Mufti and Naidu have now sought details into the matter.
