Islamabad, November 29, 2016 (PPI-OT): This Ministry rejects the fallacious report published in a local daily “The Daily Times” on 28 November 2016, alleging the “appointment” of the daughter of a senior NAB official in the Foreign Ministry. The said report is not only incorrect and misleading in terms of its contents but has also twisted unrelated issues to add sensation. We are taking up the issue with the daily’s management for an appropriate action.
We hope that the management of The Daily Times would also take notice of the irresponsible, false and baseless allegations levelled by its correspondent against the Ministry, since such misrepresentations not only bring the daily into disrepute but they also undermine the constructive role that media plays in a democratic society.
