Geo is anti-parliament, PPP MNA tells NA

By Muhammad Anis

ISLAMABAD: PPP MNA Sher Muhammad Baloch during a speech on the floor of the National Assembly accused that Geo TV and its anchor Kamran Khan wanted to destabilize the country. “The Geo TV and Kamran Khan are anti-parliament, anti-PPP and they want to destabilize Pakistan,” Sher Baloch while delivering his speech on Rabbani committee report said.

PPP’s Abdul Qadar Patel who was chairing the session tried to interrupt Baloch but the other PPP members started thumping desks to hail remarks uttered by their colleague. Patel, however, did not expunge Sher Baloch’s remarks against Geo TV and Kamran Khan. The Geo TV time and again becomes target of criticism from the leaders of the ruling party for exposing corruption. Meanwhile, a Geo spokesman said Geo is the only channel that is highlighting people’s problems, importance of rule of law, bad affects of corruption particularly Swiss cases, crime and ever-increasing price hike. The channel unveiled many big cases of corruption and irregularities, he said.

The Geo campaign against corruption and lawlessness, he said, is unabated and that was why it is highest-rated channel. The channel is popular among the masses and its programmes are highest rated. Only yesterday Kamran Khan in his programme at Geo raised the question that Supreme Court is not hearing NRO cases including Swiss courts cases.
