  1. What was the motive of denying the courage by the journalists. It means that the government officials are worried of media and their intentions are not clear.

    Free media is the eyes and ears of a democratic government, It is very sad that the government seems not to accommodate any criticism. While the people have true expectations of this government because people have a great trust in PPP.

    It is now upto the leadership to win their hearts by respecting their hopes and repair the mistrust created by some mistakes by the elements who have never wanted this PPP being strong in this area. The historic victory of PPP from Gojal was not possible without the participation and trust of the majority youth voters, I hope the party leadership will not breach their trust.

    The gap between the people and the party government is a creation of the corrupt official who were appointed by the opposition and these guys may have the agenda to breach the trust of the youth.
