LAHORE: Special Assistant to Chief Minister (SACM) and Spokesman Punjab government Hasaan Khawar said on Sunday that audio and video leaks for political interests is an old tradition being used for years.
Ironically the inventors of such tactics are always afraid to take these leaks into the courtroom because they can’t prove them. All they want to make hue and cry in the cover of these videos to hide their corruption but they are unable to do so. He said that these audio and videos come from the same foundry and the masterpieces of the same artist.
Addressing a media training workshop for girl students of various educational institutions and talking to journalists at a local hotel, Hasaan Khawar said that one can also call it ‘Ittefaq’.
He said that these people pressurize others for their vested political interests and they are not ashamed for putting national honour at risk. These people can do anything for entering and prolonging their stay in the corridors of power. Unfortunately, they consider the country a political theatre and play their role according to their interests.
In case of a clash of their interests, they separated and start attacking on institutions and personalities and blackmail them. He said that polio affected politics will be eradicated from the province.
Hasaan Khawar further stated that it is very important for people to understand the script of political theatre. In response of a reporter’s question, he said that all necessary steps are being taken to ensure transparency in NA-133 elections.
Earlier in his address, Hassan Khawar encouraged the students and said that they have an important role to play in the media industry.
