The government’s proposals on a Pakistan Media Development Authority (PMDA) will be ammended if they are not accepted, according to Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry.
“We will never form the PMDA if our proposals are not accepted,” he emphasized.
“If these proposals are accepted, well and good, otherwise we will amend them,” the Minister said. Speaking to the Senate Standing Committee on Information and Broadcasting, Chaudhry insisted that the framework being floated right now consists of only proposals.
To resolve matters, the information minister said, he has recommended an eight-member commission involving people from the media and the government.
