Government committed to allowing private radio, TV channels: Javed Jabbar

ISLAMABAD- The Advisor to Chief Executive on Information, Javed Jabbar, said that the government is committed to opening up airwaves of the country to the people by allowing private Radio and TV channels.

“We believe that the Vitality and creativity of people must also be allowed on airwaves and the medium should not be the monopoly of the government alone,” he said.

He regretted that Pakistan has just 25 radio stations out of which only three are private. “We want to change that.”
