Fawad Chaudhry, former federal minister and a leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), announced Sunday challenging the ban on broadcasting Imran Khan’s live speeches, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

While addressing a press conference at Khyber Pakhtunkhwa House in Islamabad, Fawad Chaudhry said: “We will challenge the notice [of PEMRA]. Institutions belong to everyone. No one has monopoly over institutions.”

Fawad Chaudhry also spoke about the issue of Shahbaz Gill and questioned: “If Shahbaz Gill is healthy, why is no one being allowed to meet him? If the police did not torture, then who did torture Shahbaz Gill?”

He pointed out, “Rana Sanaullah himself went through torture. I am surprised that people like him do not learn.”

He added, “If Imran Khan has given a speech, you should hold a meeting at the same place and answer the speech. Their legs tremble when Imran Khan organises a rally.”
