Chairman PTI, Imran Khan demanded that Geo network should apologize to the Pakistani nation for its baseless accusations and media vilification of the army and ISI at a time when Pakistan is facing security problems and terrorism from within the country and externally.
Imran Khan said in a statement that while all state institutions must function within the law and Constitution, it is unpleasant that media houses release campaigns against any institution without using the legal way of giving evidence and approaching the Courts. Imran Khan observed that it was ironic how subjective Geo tv\’s accusatory tactic is given its inability in the past to name known killers belonging to or affiliated with particular political groups who killed media reporters.
Imran Khan claimed that Geo network had also aided and abetted in the general election rigging from too early announcing the results when hardly 30% of the results had come in, to pre- electoral elections fixed to give certain outcomes. He included that in the interests of an unbiased media PTI kept silent despite seeing that Geo tv/Jang group had effectively become a surrogate media cell for PML-N and gained financial benefits including cricket broadcasting rights.
