A smear campaign started by a section of Nepali media against Indian joint venture (JV) companies has intensified with the Indian embassy also being targeted.

Led by Kantipur Group, some other media associations are now seeking an apology from the embassy for trying to protect interests of Indian JVs.

The campaign started in May, when Sagarmatha TV, Naya Patrika and Kantipur Group started questioning the quality of products made by Indian companies in Nepal specially Dabur Nepal.

The group’s refusal to advertise in these media groups and bow down to their blackmailing tactics is stated to be the reason behind the campaign.
