Public Backlash Against Police Act Amendment

The state government's move to implement Police Act amendment has become a setback for the government. When the government approved the recommendation of police to prevent harassment of women in cyberspace and issued an ordinance, it became a threat to the media freedom. Not only was there widespread protest in the country against the amendment, but the opposition used it as a weapon before the local government elections. It was also alleged that the government's move is to silence the media for criticising the government. Vakradrishti, Episode: 1117
