Express July 09, 2010

A resolution has been passed in the Punjab Assembly (PA) against the media concerning its coverage of the fake degrees issue.

PML-N  MPA Sanaullah Masti Khel presented the resolution against the media. The resolution blames the media for playing a negative role in the democratic process and of adopting a condescending stance towards women assembly members.

Angered, journalists boycotted the assembly proceedings and staged a walk out from the press gallery. They burnt copies of the resolution and blocked the Chief Minister’s vehicle. The journalists said they will continue their protest till the resolution is withdrawn. The Pakistan Federal Union of Journalist (PFUJ) has announced a countrywide protest on Saturday.

In earlier proceedings, members of the Punjab Assembly had raised a hue and cry over reporting on the fake degrees issue and accused the media of tarnishing the image of innocent politicians.

Sajjad RAWN | 11 years ago | Reply Media's response to the PA resolution is very negative. PA members have the right to express their opinion on every forum and specialy on floor of the house. Resolution has shown the media their real face they (media)should tolerate it. My fellow readers (Waqas Ahmad, Irfan Ahmad and Pakistani Aloo) seems to be well educated but their abusive language depicts their own personality. They should think about it.
