PTV, Radio degradation

This is to draw attention of the new Federal Information and Broadcasting Minister towards following important matters requiring due consideration at the earliest, please. It is a matter of regret and concern that former woman Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb while exercising her so-called discretionary powers reduced both prestigious institutions PTV and Radio Pakistan in the service of former ruling party while ensuring maximum coverage of all court cases as well as other activities of Nawaz Sharif, his daughter and son-in-law in a highly unjustified manner.
PTV and Radio Pakistan high ups should try to put things together and rectify the great damage so done by the former woman Information Minister out of sheer obligations to her party leaders. Radio Pakistan ‘serving and retired employees are grateful to Almighty Allah that they are getting their salaries and pensions every month regularly but their pension arrears and medical bills are pending for months and years as UNPAID due to non-availability of adequate resources for this purpose.
The worthy Federal Information & Broadcasting Minister as well as the Finance Minister are requested to look into financial crisis being faced by Radio Pakistan which does not have enough resources of its own, and also give due consideration to Rs 5 only being added as Radio Licence to domestic electricity bills every month in place of Neelum Jhelum Hydropower Project since it has already been completed to give Radio Pakistan financial autonomy to some extent so that serving and retired employees long outstanding dues are duly paid at the earliest.
