This article is not written from a neutral perspective, but, it seems, rather an advertising piece by the organization itself or someone affiliated with it.

Article even uses first person:

We believe that press is one of the major components to demonstrate the extent of democratization of a country. It also explains the extents of people's participation in governance. We believe, it is must for a free and democratic society. Press also alerts government to comply on its responsibilities and obligations. That is why it has been very often referred to as the fourth state of a country.

Still far from neutral

Despite the removal of most sentences containing the first person (not all: The radio program can be listened live on our site or at, the website of the radio station.), this is still an article far from neutral and concise.

A comment here was deleted by The Constabulary on grounds of making complaints about fellow Citizens. If you have a complaint about the behavior of another Citizen, e-mail It is contrary to Citizendium policy to air your complaints on the wiki. See also CZ:Professionalism.

Mr. Fontanari makes a good point here. I believe he has removed more material than was warranted, however. Can someone else please investigate?

Also, we need to investigate whether Mr. Adhikari, who wrote the article, is associated with APFA Bhutan. If so, this article needs to be moved to the TI: namespace in accordance with our CZ:Policy on Topic Informants. --Larry Sanger 08:56, 10 July 2007 (CDT)

So how is the investigation going? You must have quickly discovered this to be if not a clear copyright violation then a clear violation of the rules about self promotion. Right? David Finn 17:40, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Not removed anything

I did not remove anything. I put a sentence beyond the text questioning its neutrality which was in turn deleted by the initial author of the article. Everything esle from my side was confined to the discussion page. Thomas Fontanari 08:59, 10 July 2007 (CDT)

My apologies, that was Mr. Adhikari who removed all the extra text. I didn't look closely enough at the history. Sorry about that. --Larry Sanger 09:04, 10 July 2007 (CDT)
