Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry announced provision of flats to journalists on easy loans.
During a meeting with a delegation of Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ), problems of journalists and draft of Pakistan Media Development Authority (PMDA) came under discussion.
Fawad Chaudhry said the incumbent government believed in freedom of media and reservations of journalists on PMDA will be removed.
He said that presumptions regarding PMDA are totally false and no media house is being closed. The Information Minister said that the PMDA would be launched through a bill not by ordinance.
