Manush Patrika has always criticised government policies that it views as 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 upheld a complaint by 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.[3]
