Meanwhile, Imran Khan has again lashed out at the government for blocking his live telethon fundraiser for the flood victims of Pakistan. Taking to Twitter, the former premier, in a series of tweets, revealed that the incumbent government tried to blackout his telethon. He revealed that the TV channels were pressurized not to air the telethon. However, when the channels continued to do so, the government allegedly threatened cable operators.
Imran Khan said the government “stooped to new levels of low” when they tried to blackout his second telethon. Pertinent to mention that the Islamabad High Court had earlier suspended the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority’s (PEMRA) notification which prohibited television channels from airing Imran Khan’s live speeches.
“Imported government of cabal of crooks and their handlers stooped to new lows last night when they tried to blackout my telethon for flood relief fundraising. First, they pressured channels not to air the telethon. When some channels continued to air the telethon, they threatened cable operators,” Imran Khan said.
