The Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) government at the centre is considering to withhold all government advertisement to 10 Urdu and English language newspapers in Jammu and Kashmir.

An analysis carried out by security agencies have indicated that these papers, Urdu and English, have been taking an anti-India stand in the Valley, Economic Times reported. A survey has pointed out that the contents in these publications are “detrimental to national interest,” the report added.


A final decision on the matter will be taken after The Directorate of Advertising and Visual Publicity holds consultations with the Information & Broadcast Ministry.
