ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhary Fawad Hussain on Monday said leader of the opposition in National Assembly Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif’s resolve of not leaving the sit-in camp till abolishment of PMDA bill has exposed his capabilities.
In a tweet, he asked Shehbaz Sharif to keep himself abreast about the prevailing situation before issuing any wrong statement about the Pakistan Media Development Authority (PMDA) bill, which has not yet been passed by the parliament. “If no law has been passed yet, how will it abolish,” he questioned. “For God’s sake, Shehbaz Sharif should not read anything else, just read the newspapers before commenting on any issue,” he commented.
He lamented that such the below average people have become leaders in the country. Fawad Chaudhry asked journalists to submit their proposals for changes to Pakistan Media Development Authority (PMDA) and said that the Parliament would decide on the matter. Talking to a news channel here, the information minister claimed that the PMDA was meat to counter fake news and similar bills have been enacted globally.
