The government has made an about-turn - a week after banning Tamil daily Makkal Osai. Its publishing permit has been renewed and the newspaper will hit the stands on Saturday.On April 16, the daily received a letter from the Home Ministry stating that its permit would not be renewed. No reasons were given for this.The daily, which is closely linked to former MIC deputy president S Subramaniam, subsequently filed an appeal.Industry sources claimed that the ministry's decision was related to Makkal Osai's extensive coverage of opposition-related news and the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf).
