Imran Khan lifts censorship in PTV, Radio Pakistan; state-run media to enjoy editorial independence


Imran Khan, the newly sworn-in Prime Minister of Pakistan, has already started to create reforms in the country. On Tuesday, August 22, Imran Khan-led government announced that all state-run media outlets in the country will be free from political censorship. (Time Magazine Subscription)

How Musharraf became a Billionaire?

This announcement comes just a week after Pakistan had sought to ban Twitter following the refusal to block a few offensive tweets aimed at Pakistani government.

The previous government led by Nawaz Shariff had also promised the same reform, however, failed to do so.

Pakistan's Information Minister Fawad Hussain Chaudhry on Tuesday announced that the PTI government has lifted all political censorship in state-run media outlets. The Imran Khan-led government plans on implementing this within a span of three months.

The minister tweeted that Pakistan Television (PTV) and Radio Pakistan will now enjoy complete editorial independence over the content that they produce.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan had earlier promised wide-ranging reforms in government institutions with a view to make them independent and free from political corruption.

The state’s chief minister, Omar Abdullah, says dams will add an extra 3,000MW to the grid in the next eight years alone. Some analysts in Srinagar talk of over 60 dam projects, large and small, now on the books.
