LAHORE Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer Friday strongly condemned the Punjab Assemblys resolution against media, saying it was highly regrettable that the resolution was passed in the presence of Leader of the House Mian Shahbaz Sharif. In a press statement issued by the Governors House, Taseer said media was an important pillar of the state and its services for strengthening the democracy were praiseworthy. The governor further stated that the PPP had always fought for the freedom of the media, and its promotion had been one of the top priorities of the party. He suggested that the Punjab Assembly should withdraw the resolution.
