Warning Nepali society not to engage in activities that push it towards anarchy, distortion and anomaly, and mass media workers not to become chaotic, unreasonable and irresponsible, he said, “directives are being issued to bring such activities under the purview of the law.”

He also said that the directives are being brought to regulate the freedom of expression, provocation, person-centeredness, misrepresentation of the highest organs of the country and individuals and such expressions being published and broadcast by social media and some responsible media with priority in the last few days.

“It is unfortunate that the hard earned democratic system of governance established by the long political conflict has been attacked, violence is being spread and the country is being pushed towards confrontation,” he said.
