ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, Syed Khursheed Shah Friday urged the government to bring the code of conduct for media to the Parliament.
In an informal chat with reporters, he said freedom of the media is vital for democracy but that doesn’t mean the media houses should unleash baseless propaganda campaigns against politicians. “A code of conduct for the media is need of the hour to keep a check on it,” he said.
Shah said the government should table a code of conduct in the Parliament for discussion and make it binding on all media houses to adhere to it, if passed unanimously.
“If the government fails to introduce the code of conduct in the Parliament, then PPP would table it soon for discussion,” he said.
He, however, said his party fully believes in the freedom of speech and freedom of expression but “unbridled freedom to media can be injurious to itself and working journalists.”
