These days every government functionary is talking about poverty but nobody talks about the poverty of our institutions, like the PTV. According to the latest direction issued by the MD, PTV in Islamabad, the management has directed all re-broadcasting stations in the NWFP to close down their telecast service during the loadshedding hours because the PTV has no funds for its stand-by power generators. Majority of the people in NWFP are deprived of access to latest news reports and other programs of PTV because they do not have cable or dish antenna facilities. My question to Qamar Zaman Kaira is very simple. Is Mr Kaira the minister incharge of the PTV or is he the sponsor of the private channels? -BASHIR HUSSAIN AZAD, Chitral, March 5.
