ISLAMABAD—Former Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry has held the media houses responsible for the difficulties the working journalists face.
In a tweet in Urdu, he said that in 2021 the business of all media houses registered a 40 percent increase. “But the owners did not transfer a single rupee to working journalists.”
