Govt not planning any curbs on media: Kaira

ISLAMABAD: Federal Information and Broadcasting Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira said on Monday that the government is not planning to introduce any new restrictions on the media.

Responding to a question at a press conference, Kaira said that a draft bill currently under discussion in the National Assembly’s standing committee was meant to do away with the amendments introduced by former president Gen (r) Pervez Musharraf. He said some of the Musharraf-era amendments had already been removed by the parliament, while the rest would be ratified through the proposed bill.
