ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has sent a letter to state-run Pakistan Television (PTV) seeking arrangements for broadcast of Imran Khan’s address to nation on Sunday.
In a letter written to Imran Gardezi, the Secretary Information and Acting Managing Director of Pakistan Television Netowkr (PTV), PTI demanded to make arrangements for Imran Khan’s address to nation on Sunday at 6 pm.
“To defend his case, the Prime Minister of Pakistan used the Pakistan Television on 5th of April to address the nation regarding the Panama Leaks and tried his best to explain his personal and his family’s position on the matter,” the letter states.
It further says: “You are well of the fact that the Pakistan Television Network, being the largest terrestrial television network of the country runs solely on tax-prayers money which makes PTV television network of each and every Pakistani citizen.”
“Unfortunately, since the panama leaks have come to the fore, the Prime Minister, the Information Minister and various MNA’s of the ruling PML-N have used PTV to spread disinformation amongst the masses regarding Shaukat Khanum Hospital. That tantamounts to using network for political/personal interest rather than state/government interest,” the party said.
“It is therefore the right of honorable Chairman PTI, Mr. Imran Khan to also address the masses via PTV’s network to respond to the baseless allegations on Shaukat Khanum and explain his position on the Panama Leaks,” it added. NNI
