PTV screws up with the picture of PM Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Television’s (PTV) official Twitter account posted pictures of Prime Minister Imran Khan having morning walk with Information minister Fawad Chaudhary and senator Faisal Javed.

But, here is a catch in the pictures shared by the state-run television need to be noticed. The images were taken around nine months ago when Khan was enjoying the morning walk with his close aides at a farmhouse owned by Jehangir Tareen Khan.

A video of the morning workout was also posted online in November 2017.

After the active social media users spotted the mistake and grilled the government-controlled television, PTV took down the Twitter post as it is now unavailable.

Earlier, the pictures of Prime Minister of Pakistan made headlines when he started his duty a day after taking the oath for the post as he reached PM office after morning exercise.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) government on Tuesday announced to make the state-owned Pakistan Television (PTV) fully independent in order to ensure impartiality.

Information Minister Fawad Hussain made the historic announcement, ending the decades-old political censorship on the state governed television.

Hussain said that the reforms are being introduced under the vision of the newly-elected Prime Minister Imran Khan, adding that clear instructions have been issued for a complete editorial independence on PTV and Radio Pakistan.
