KARACHI: Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Patron-In-Chief, Pakistan People’s Party, has congratulated newly-elected office-bearers Hameed Haroon as President and Sarmad Ali as General Secretary and all Executive Committee members of All Pakistan Newspapers Society (APNS) and hoped that the new body will place its priorities by looking into the grim situation our country is being pushed into.
In a release on Tuesday, Bilawal said APNS is the prime body of national and regional media outlets and the role of media is going to define the future of the country and the democratic order. “A free media can survive and thrive only in a free Pakistan. At a time, when entire nation is under attack from the forces of darkness in the shape of terrorism and extremism, media should stand with the nation unambiguously,” he added.
PPP Patron-In-Chief assured that his Party would extend all possible help and support to the newly-elected office-bearers of APNS in playing and performing its positive role at this crucial juncture in our history and putting it back on the track to a welfare state where terrorism, extremism, exploitation, crime and injustice have no room.
