The prime minister complained that the media was unfairly critical of the government and more than 70 percent programmes were broadcasted by the media against the government since it came to power.

The PM said that what could be the biggest slander than this that three major newspapers have carried a news on their front pages that the selection of the Azad Kashmir prime minister was made after looking at his horoscope (Zaicha Nikal Kar).

He said if the government was not involved in corruption and breaking of law then it would have an issue with free media and an independent judiciary.

He said none of his relatives was in big offices and the media has been enjoying more freedom under the present government than ever before.

The prime minister said that for the first time powerful people are being made answerable before the law.
