A day after the Bahawalpur rally of the opposition Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), a team of spokesmen for Prime Minister Imran Khan took an aggressive stance on Monday following the Prime Minister’s line that the movement was over. Before turning to various TV channels for participation in talk shows, the spokespersons attended a brainstorming session at the Prime Minister’s House, which was chaired by Prime Minister Khan.
The PDM has almost disappeared and died its own death, so it is no longer a threat to the government.He instructed his spokespersons to give the opposition a “tough time” in the media, as can be seen when spokespersons step on the front legs of opposition leaders. The Prime Minister reiterated that the opposition has taken to the streets to seek concessions like the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) for its leaders, who have looted national wealth and are now facing corruption.
The whole PDM movement is aimed at getting NRO, but I will not give them any relief,” he said. The team of spokespersons is made up of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders who are often seen on TV screens, promoting the government’s views on various issues and the Prime Minister’s statement.
They include Information Minister Shibli Faraz, Science and Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry, Planning and Development Minister Asad Umar, Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood, Industry Minister Hamad Azhar, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Youth Affairs Usman Dar, Senator Faisal Javed and others. Are For Communications, Murad Saeed, Nadeem Afzal Gondal, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Information Rauf Hassan, Special Assistants Shahbaz Gul, Waleed Iqbal, Kanwal Shozab, Malika Bukhari, Minister of State for Climate Change Zartaj Gul, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Muhammad Khan.
The prime minister’s storytelling process begins with a regular meeting of spokespersons, during which Mr Khan gives him a guiding principle on how to fight the opposition in the media.According to a senior party leader, the prime minister personally gives feedback on his performance to various spokespersons through WhatsApp.
