ISLAMABAD – The Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) has given a two day ultimatum to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan to either to give evidence or tender an apology from journalists who he deemed to be as being ‘sold’.
According to PFUJ’s President Afzal Butt – who himself is a talk show host at semi government news outlet ATV – said we will not tolerate now.
“Imran Khan has two days. From November 21 we will stage protest all over the country. In PTI’s Larkana rally journalists will participate with black bands on their arms,” he added.
Imran Khan had leveled an accusation on certain television journalists that they took bribe from Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government to frame his protest in a negative manner. He also accused Intelligence Bureau (IB) to distribute Rs 2.7 billion among those television journalists.
However, the former Director General of IB Masood Sharif Khattak had strongly refuted the notion that ‘IB works for the sitting prime minister’.
