Content[edit | edit source]

Template:Confusing section Manush Patrika has always criticised the government policies that are not beneficial to the common people and more than once they have faced the wrath of the government. On 5 January 1982 The Press Council of India found as justified the complaint of Manush Patrika that the state government had illegally stopped advertisements to it. The council felt that there was a direct linkage between articles written by the daily and the stoppage of advertisements.[2]
