Two members of Press Council, and two journalists’ unions, blast PCI’s decision to back Narendra Modi government’s curbs on media in Kashmir

Two serving members of the Press Council of India, and two media organisations, have opposed PCI’s “unilateral” decision to back the Narendra Modi government’s curbs on the media, by seeking to intervene in a petition before the Supreme Court.

Press Council members Jaishankar Gupta and C.K. Nayak, who are office bearers with Press Association, have said there was no discussion on PCI’s intervention during a full meeting of the Council on August 22.

The Delhi Union of Journalists and the National Alliance of Journalists too have accused the PCI of “tom-tomming” the government’s interest and acting as its “B-team”.
