Srinagar: Kashmir Editors Guild (KEG) Thursday expressed concern at the continued denial of advertisements to Kashmir Reader newspaper by the Jammu and Kashmir government.

The newspaper has never been informed either verbally or in black and white about the reasons for a halt to the advertisements by the government, KEG said in a statement today.

It said the issue was brought to the notice of the administration many times at different levels and it was expected that the decision-makers take a view of the issue. “So far it has not been done. The continued unexplained denial has landed the newspaper in a situation that it is unable to manage the establishment costs merely on the revenue it generates from the private sector, also under pressure owing to the pandemic.”

KEG expects that the Lt Governor Manoj Sinha will look into the issue so that the newspaper is prevented from being closed, the statement said adding the newspaper has scores of people on its rolls including journalists and other professionals.
