Strong protest led govt to withdraw its decision to lease out Radio Pakistan’s building
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-led federal government had decided to shift the PBC Headquarters to its academy in H-9 and give the existing building on a long-term lease.
The decision trigged a strong protest by the employees of Radio Pakistan, and PPP also moved a call attention motion in the National Assembly against the government’s decision of leasing out the building of Radio Pakistan.
Subsequently, the government withdrew its plan of leasing out the building of Radio Pakistan.
Talking to a Private News Channel, the Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Political Affairs Naeem-ul-Haq said that it is a democratic government and it would always respect the public opinion.
Naeem-ul-Haq said that the government would never want to dismiss any single employee from the job as it had made promise of giving 10 million jobs.
