Arrest of senior journalist Mohsin Jamil Baig a dastardly act of government: Chairman PAC


Chairman Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Rana Tanvir Hussain while denouncing the arrest of senior journalist Mohsin Jamil Baig has said government decision to initiate action against the Sessions judge who has declared this arrest illegal is tantamount to attack the institutions.

He said this while talking to media men along with Chaudhry Mehmood ul Haq PML-N MPA here Saturday.

He said the government while setting the worst precedent of subjecting the opposition to political vendetta is now all geared to choke media.

He held the incumbent government has proved the ever worst government in the history of the country. It will be remembered as the blackest era of the country.
The ill conceived policies of government have landed people in perpetual agony, he said adding the speech delivered by PM Imran Khan in Mandi Baha ud Din was the language of a defeated captain. Government is making abortive attempts to impose restrictions on media to cover up its failures, he remarked.

The detention of Mohsin Jamil Baig is cowardly act of government, he remarked. We condemn it strongly. Government has lost courage to tolerate criticism, he added.
