ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Information Marriyum Aurangzeb has said on special directives of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif a dedicated television channel is being launched for coverage of parliamentary proceedings.
Talking to a news channel, she said Parliament is the only platform to raise the public issues through their representatives and launching a separate channel for this purpose is need of the hour.
The Minister of State said Parliament and democracy are being strengthened.
Replying to a question regarding permission of telecasting the speech of opposition leader Syed Khurshid Ahmad Shah on PTV, Marriyum Aurangzeb said she had assured the opposition to telecast his speech later, as it was not possible to make a live telecast due to Ramazan transmission.
She regretted that the matter was politicized by the opposition.
