LAHORE -- PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has directed party leaders to adopt an aggressive, but polite policy in the media to convey 'true facts' to the people.
He was chairing an online meeting of the party leadership from across the country to devise a media strategy. The meeting offered prayers for Dr Ayatollah Durrani, Murtaza Baloch, Dr Ijaz Ahsan and others. It also condemned firing on the journalists protesting in Islamabad against the closure of a private TV channel.
'Pemra security officials fired on journalists to prove their media policy,' alleged Mr Bhutto-Zardari, adding that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government got TV anchors off air for having an independent opinion.
He directed the party leaders that during their encounters with the media they should adopt an aggressive, but polite strategy against the PTI government and for negating 'baseless' corruption allegations against the PPP leadership.
'To convey true facts to the people, it is necessary that the stance of the PPP on various issues is brought to the fore in a courteous manner.'
The PPP chief also sought thwarting of the PTI government's attempt to make coronavirus a non-issue and hoped TV anchors would show neutrality and present the views of all parties.
Those who joined the meeting included Nayyar Bukhari, Farhatullah Babar, Aitzaz Ahsan, Sherry Rehman, Naveed Qamar, Saleem Mandviwala, Shazia Marri, Qamar Zaman Kaira, Chaudhry Manzoor, Maula Bakhsh Chandio, Nafisa Shah, Palwasha Khan, Haider Zaman Qureshi, Barrister Amir Hassan...
