Nepal's cable TV operators have switched off signals for all Indian news channels, except Doordarshan. This was reported by ANI on July 9, 2020. There is no official government notification on the same as of now. 

A chanel operator confirmed the news to ANI by saying that they turned off the signals of Indian news channels from this evening. The move comes hours after former Deputy Prime Minister and the ruling party's spokesperson, Narayan Kaji Shrestha said that the Indian media's baseless propaganda against the Nepali government and Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has crossed all limits. 

The Indian Government is yet to respond to the move. This is a developing story. Stay tuned for more updates.

Background
