President PFUJ GM Jamali condemns Sk. Rasheed’s attitude towards journalists

KARACHI: President Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) GM Jamali, noting that the countrywide movement against the forced dismissals and non-payment of dues is getting momentum, lauded the struggle of Media-Workers all over Pakistan.

GM Jamali, while noting that journalists of Hyderabad were fighting for their rights on the front line, strongly condemned the tyrannical attitude of Federal Minister Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad, who instead of denouncing the financial murder of Media Workers by the owners of Media Houses, resorted to run over journalist Junaid Khanzada in Hyderabad when Media workers boycotted his event.

President PFUJ GM Jamali has noted that Federal Government instead of denouncing the owners of Media Houses for forcefully sacking journalists and not paying their dues, was pressurizing and now assaulting the Media Workers who – due to economic murder – are forced to endure wretchedness along with their families.

President PFUJ GM Jamali warned the Federal Government that if its mindset persisted and it failed to take measures against owners of Media Houses in order to ameliorate the wretched condition in which the Media Workers had been forced to exist, the volume and intensity of nationwide protests would be amplified and all the government events would be boycotted.

All three KUJs join hands to protest.

LAHORE: Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed on Saturday blasted the opposition Pakistan Muslim League–Nawaz (PML-N) for criticising the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman in the wake of leaked tapes showing purported conversation between him and an unnamed female.  

Addressing a press conference, he said the PML-N desired removal of NAB chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal from his post in order to halt filing of references against party leaders.

Responding to a question about the leaked audio and video tapes of the NAB chief, the minister said, “Leave the audio and video aside, see corrupt elements’ screams.” He said this in a reference to PML-N leaders’ reaction to the controversy.

“Look at their past, whenever they find themselves trapped, they target institutions,” he said, claiming Shehbaz Sharif is begging for an NRO-like deal to get scott-free in graft cases filed against him.

Sheikh Rasheed said the PML-N and PPP are responsible for inflation in the country.
