Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has reiterated that the Government believes in freedom of expression but media should ensure objectivity and sanctity of the word. "Neither there was any curb or restriction on media nor there was even a single Political worker imprisoned at the moment in the country", he said this while addressing the oath taking ceremony of National Press Club's office bearers here at the PM Secretariat. "Criticism for the sake of criticism can never yield results," he said, adding that, we see criticism of media as a source of guidance but media should ensure objectivity and sanctity of the word. The media, he said, is not only a fourth pillar of the state but also keeps a vial on the working of three other pillars including judiciary, legislative and executive. We can rectify our mistakes through media, he said. The Premier went on to say that media also plays a vital role in serving as a bridge amongst the three pillars of the state. Gilani said the government was fulfilling its obligations towards the rights of press, adding, there was no curb or restriction on media in the country and the journalists were performing professional duties with complete freedom. He also recalled the services of veteran journalists who played their part in the creation of Pakistan and it's development. The Government, he said, was aware of the problems of journalists and was giving due attention to resolve them. He assured the journalists that the government would provide them insurance and health facilities, besides resolving their residential problems. The Prime Minister felicitated the new office bearers of the National Press Club. He also announced Rs. 140 million for Journalists housing society, besides ordering the Capital Development Authority (CDA) to build the wall around National Press Club as soon as possible. Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira, President NPC Afzal Butt and Former President NPC Tariq Ch, also addressed on the occasion. Earlier the Prime Minister administered oath to the new office bearers of National Press Club.
