Kaira brush aside false perception about Presidentís stay in London PDF Print E-mail
LONDON, Aug 5 (APP) - Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Qamar Zaman Kaira has discounted the negative perception regarding stay of the President in expensive hotel in London and re-launching of the Chairperson PPP, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.Commenting on the footage being telecast by certain television channels, Kaira said, the footage shown on some television networks is not that of the hotel in which the President of Pakistan is staying.President and his team is staying at the cheapest places as compared to previous presidents, he added.
He categorically rejected the reports and said that the rent of the suite occupied by the President is less than 300 Pounds which is meager by any standards of elite hoteling in Britain.
Kaira said that he himself was staying with his friends and no liability is charged to the government on account of his stay in the United Kingdom.
“It is highly regrettable that the viewers are misled by portraying wrong footage in a malicious effort to create wrong perceptions,” Kaira said and added that Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is already the Chairperson of the Pakistan Peoples Party. There is no so called launching of his chairperson.
The launching ceremony that would be organised in London on August 07 in fact, pertains to steer the fund raising campaign for the flood victims back home in the country.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Chairperson of PPP will launch this fund raising campaign at the Pakistan High Commission’s flood relief centre, Kaira said and added that news reports regarding re-launching of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari as Chairperson of PPP are misleading, concocted and contrary to facts.
Kaira further said that reports about booking of hall in Birmingham at the expense of government exchequer are incorrect and exaggerated. As a matter of fact, the community hall was booked by the Pakistan community at 9,000 pounds and not 40,000 pounds as alleged in some news reports, he added.
Regarding the visit of President Asif Ali Zardari to the “palace” in France, Kaira explained that the house belongs to the ancestors of the President. Asif Ali Zardari visited the place to inquire about the health of his ailing father, Hakim Ali Zardari who is currently undergoing medical treatment there, he added.
During his interaction with representatives of Dubai government, pledges of support to build damaged bridges in Pakistan’s flood affected areas have been made. The French government has committed five million Euros to the President for rehabilitation of flood affected people in Pakistan, he added.
Karia also lamented the sensational and unverified reporting by media and urged media organizations to take note of irresponsible reporting by a section of media.
He said the President’s interaction with British leadership would help remove the misperceptions about Pakistan and the President would convey the feelings of the people of Pakistan on the reported statement of the British Prime Minister in India.
Kaira said, PPP follows the principle of “democracy is the best revenge” as enunciated by Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and believes that “dialogue is the best weapon” to further the national interest.
