ISLAMABAD—Fawad Chaudhry, a former information minister, said on Twitter Tuesday that Daily Times was the only paper that prominently covered PTI Chairman Imran Khan's telethon.
The telethon to collect funds for flood relief saw pledges of Rs5 billion. Fawad attached an image of the Daily Times front page that said 'Rs 5 billion collected.'
