ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari strongly condemning the scolding and abusing of renowned journalists on social media and said that abusing journalists is another attack on the elements who have been criticising the government on its faulty policies.

“By scolding journalists they are being given a message to either remain silent or be ready to face the consequences,” he said in a statement on Thursday.

Bilawal said the government and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) instead of trolling the opposition should focus on the elimination of coronavirus.

He said the government and PTI should use national resources and their efforts to make people aware of coronavirus. He said that the need of the hour is to be united. He said that media plays a vital role in a democratic system. The media all over the world has criticised and held responsible different governments on their measures regarding corona control. “The government should remember that there is a long struggle by the journalists in the history against tyranny and injustices,” he said.

While a in a twitter message, Bilawal said that Human Rights Watch has advised the federal and other provincial governments to adopt policies of Sindh government. “This international organisation has said that the Sindh government’s policies should be followed by other governments for protecting workers’ rights,” he said through a tweet.
