Information Minister Fawad Chuadhry and Prime Minster’s Special Assistant on Political Affairs Naeemul Haq have exchanged ‘barbs’ on Twitter over the appointment of top official at the state-run Pakistan Television.
Amid media reports that Fawad was unhappy with the appointment of PTV News’ Managing Director Arshad Khan and wanted to replace him, Haq tweeted on Wednesday that Prime Minister Imran Khan had full confidence in the management of PTV and wanted to turn it into an independent organisation like the BBC.
Quoting the Haq’s tweet, Fawad replied him with a poetic expression:
Following the federal minister’s tweet, the PM’s special assistant took to the Twitter again, saying that “all the newcomers in the PTI must understand and follow the philosophy of Imran Khan”.
He added that “those who do not believe in the ideology have no future in the party”.
Responding to Haq, Fawad retweeted one of his fan’s tweet, which advised Haq to contest an election if he wanted to be a politician rather than depending on friendship with Imran Khan.
According to sources, the information minister also wrote a letter to the PTV MD, expressing displeasure over his performance.
