Manipur media continues to boycott govt news over unpaid bills

Manipur media houses boycott all government-related news in protest against the failure of the state in clearing pending advertisement bills has entered its ninth day with no visible solution in sight.

The boycott came into effect on April 24 following a decision taken by publishers, representatives of Editors’ Guild Manipur (EGM), All Manipur Working Journalists’ Union (AMWJU), and Manipur Hill Journalist Union (MHJU).

A member of the Editor’s Guild said the media bodies have not received any official information from the government on the matter even as the protest has entered its ninth day.

“As such, we have no choice but to continue with the ongoing boycott until our demands are met, he added.
