Waqt TV team not allowed coverage

ISLAMABAD- Authorities of PML-N on Tuesday stopped the Waqt TV news team from the coverage of N-League Quaid Nawaz Sharif’s press conference held in the Punjab House.

It is learnt that Special Advisor to Chief Minister Punjab Pervez Rashid invited six private TV channels for the coverage of PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif’s press conference in the Punjab House.

When Waqt TV news team reached there, they were told that name of their news channel was not included in the list, therefore, they could not cover the event.

The reporters of Waqt TV then contacted the PML-N Secretary Information Ahsan Iqbal on mobile phone but he could not respond.

Later, the Waqt TV team returned without covering the press conference.

The journalists present outside the Punjab House protested against the discriminatory attitude of PML-N authorities.
