World Press Freedom Day
Karachi—The Sindh government is well aware of the problems that the journalist fraternity is facing and is fully determined to resolve their problems. Journalist across the globe are always under threats while they execute their professional duty for bringing information to the doorstep of the people but the situation in Pakistan is rather dangerous and many have embraced martyrdom during the execution of professional duties.
Sindh Chief Minister’s advisor on information Moula Bux Chandio said this on the occasion of candle vigil to commemorate the World Journalism Day at the Karachi Press Club to pay tribute to those journalists, who laid their lives in the noble cause of keeping the people informed, Tuesday.
The freedom of expression and press could not be suppressed and whenever it was, Pakistan people’s party showed full resistance to the oppressors and protested, said Chandio, adding that the PPP believes in complete freedom of speech, expression and press and always introduced and applied measures for the resolution of the journalist fraternity.
He said that Sindh government always values the contribution of the journalists especially their sacrifices for the promotion of democracy and always advocates for strong and close coordination between the government and them.
