ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain says PTI is apparently facing no hurdle to get elected its candidate as President of Pakistan. He was talking to newsmen after a meeting of the senior party leadership in Banigala today with Prime Minister and party Chairman Imran Khan in the chair.
The Minister said PTI enjoys support of all of its allied parties, including Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan, Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid-e-Azam, Balochistan Awami Party and Grand Democratic Alliance.
He said the name of Dr. Arif Alvi is final from PTI for election to the slot of President.
Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said Prime Minister Imran Khan has taken historic decisions enabling the government to save millions of rupees within few days and these austerity measures will continue in future as well.
He said the government is committed to protect the national exchequer and generate new resources for the country.
The Minister said the meeting decided to launch two new PTV channels. He said one of them will cover sports excluding cricket, while another will be dedicated for children.
He said the present PTV Sports will be rebranded as PTV Cricket.
To a question, Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said the government has made Radio Pakistan and PTV independent in their editorial policies, and now the government is deliberating upon introducing a system to end the governent monopoly on its ads.
He said number of government ads will also be decreased.
