Charikot June 6, 2015: Even after one month of the Gorkha quake, the Newspapers published from the district have yet to resume publication.
Publisher of Nawatarang weekly Rajan Bahadur Siwakoti said that because of the quake the newspapers offices suffered extensive damage in terms of physical infrastructure and printing machinery and they are yet to hit the stands again due to absence of any support from government or non-government side.
central member of Federation of Nepali Journalists Chiranjibi Maskey said as it is not good for the society at large for them to remain closed the efforts are being made to help the weeklies to resume publication.
The Nawatarang, Bhimeswar, Sailungkosurya, Kalinchwok Sandesh and Arthantar weeklies were in regular publication among the 35 newspapers registered in the district and none of the five weeklies published from the district have resumed publication.
Simmilarly, following the earthquake 4 local FM radio stations too had shut down for few days but they have resumed service from makeshift shelters.
