KARACHI: Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has extended felicitations to the newly-elected body of Karachi Union of Journalists (KUJ) and assured them his Party’s full support for protecting freedom of press and freedom of expression.
In a congratulation message to the newly-elected President Hassan Abbas and General Secretary Aajiz Jamali of KUJ, the PPP Chairman said his Party has always struggled together with journalist fraternity against the draconian laws enacted by dictatorial regimes. It was PPP government which abolished such laws aimed at gagging the press, he added.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari hoped that newly-elected KUJ body will serve the journalist community and asked them to convey his felicitations to the other office-bearers.
