FNJ President Bipul Pokharel apologises for involvement in media award
KATHMANDU: Federation of Nepali Journalists (FNJ) Bipul Pokharel has apologised for his involvement in the media award.
A Central Committee meeting has started after he expressed his commitment to form a probe committee.
The FNJ meeting that commenced in Kapilvastu from Friday was disrupted after the central members demanded fair investigation into Pokharel’s involvement in the media award.
Soon after the commencement of the meeting, the central members of the FNJ said that the investigation should be conducted for misusing the signature of the general secretary in the name of media award. The central members also said that the investigation should be carried out against the chairman for asking money from the people in the name of media award and for attending the controversial award programme.
Elected central members of the Press Centre and Samajbadi Press Organisation had boycotted the meeting arguing that the meeting could not be held under the headship of a man involved in the fraudulent activities.
