The Gandaki state government has told the journalists that it has allocated a budget of more than Rs 20 million for the coming fiscal year. 

Minister for Social Development and spokesperson Kumar Khadka said in a meeting with Kaski Press Union close to the Nepali Congress that the amount was set aside for journalists.

In the budget statement of the Fiscal Year 2078/79, the state government has mentioned the plan from the construction of the journalist building to the fund set up by the state branch of the Federation of Nepali Journalists.

During the meeting, Kaski Press Union President Navin Sigdel said that the state government should bring a program to boost the morale of working journalists.

The Gandaki state government has brought a budget of Rs. 30.03 billion for the fiscal year 2078/79. Discussion on the budget has not started as the ministries of the state government formed on April 12 could not be shared.
