ISLAMABAD—Speaker National Assembly Asad Qaiser, in another attempt to curb press freedom, restricted the entry of journalists into the Parliament House.
According to a tweet by parliamentary reporter Nadir Guramani, journalists were not allowed to cover the meeting of the National Security Committee, in which COAS was also invited.
"The arrival of the army chief in the Senate, interaction with opposition leaders and other meetings of the National Security Committee have been covered by the media in the past, but now journalists have been banned from entering the Parliament House," Guramani tweeted, terming the move unnecessary and beyond comprehension.
The meeting was scheduled at the main hall of the National Assembly, for which invitations were sent to more than 80 people, including MNAs, senators, members of the federal cabinet, four provincial chief ministers, and the Azad Jammu and Kashmir prime minister.
