ISLAMABAD: The chief of Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP), Mehmood Khan Achakzai, on Wednesday raised his voice in support of the Geo and Jang Group, urging the joint sitting of both the houses of parliament to pass a resolution in support of restoration of Geo.
Speaking on a point of order, Achakzai said there was not a single person in the country who did not support the Geo News. “A mob of a dozen people attacks the Geo offices on daily basis and nobody is stopping them,” he added.
He questioned as to why and under which law Geo had been closed and said if it had made any mistake, then Geo has sought an apology but so far it was still closed.The PkMAP chief said for the last one month, Geo was appealing to parliament for its help and it was time to take measures for its restoration and pass a resolution from parliament for its support.
Achakzai said the Jang Group, the country’s largest media group, had served the country and journalism for 70 years.He asked parliamentarians to take measures for the restoration of Geo and wondered why it was not restored till now.
PPP Senator Saeed Ghani also raised his voice in support of Geo, saying that when the government was taking action against those who had attacked the PTV building, then why action was not taken against those who were attacking Geo on a daily basis.
