ISLAMABAD: PTV Parliament Channel will be launched soon, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb while responding to the questions of the members of National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Information and Broadcasting here Tuesday said that PTV Parliament channel would soon be launched for the live coverage of the National Assembly and Senate sessions as well as standing committees of both the houses.
She said that since it had been said during the meeting whether the PTV was a state channel or of a particular party, it was incumbent upon her to clarify that the channel had shown live the sessions of the parliament as well as the speeches of the opposition members.
She said that members of all the political parties were invited to the current affairs and other programmes of PTV and the data in that respect was available, which could be presented before the committee if desired. The minister reiterating the need for restructuring PTV said that it was a state channel and was being run according to the policy approved by the cabinet. She said that PC-I for children channel was also ready. Marriyum said that Ramadan transmission of PTV was very successful last year and this year also a good Ramadan transmission was envisaged.
She claimed that during Ramadan people preferred to watch PTV programmes as they were telecast after strict editorial review. The minister stated that PTV AJK was covering AJK and Gilgit-Baltistan and it was also neutralizing negative propaganda by India.
She informed the committee that PTV Bolan, PTV National and PTV AJK were promoting local languages, culture, music and tourism. Marriyum said that PTV had maintained its credibility in regard to news telecast and no news telecast by the channel had ever been contradicted, adding that it had adopted a strict editorial policy to uphold the social, religious and cultural values.
Newspakistan.tv Envoy Amir Khan rubbishes beautician’s allegations!
LONDON: Newspakistan.tv Envoy Amir Khan rubbishes beautician’s allegations, For quite some time, it seems like British-Pakistani boxer Amir Khan is in a pickle. Recently, a 22-year old beautician namely Sophia Hammani claims to have an affair with Khan.
The scandal came forward hardly a month after he became the father of his second child. Sophia further claimed that she has been indulged with the boxer since May 11, 2018, because she thought he had parted ways with his wife and ex-model Faryal Makhdoom, 26.
The onset of the affair: Sources privy to NPTV have been intimated that the affair started as they met at a London club some 17 days later Faryal bore their second daughter.
However, when she got back her flat following the affair, she came to know that he was still married to Faryal, after seeing a snap of the duo on Instagram, afore they flew off to Pakistan as to celebrate Ramazan.
Claiming that the boxer asked her over in his hotel room for a night when they were in the club, Sophia revealed, “My friend and I were on our way to the toilet when she said, ‘There’s a boxer over there’. I was hoping it was Anthony Joshua, he’s so hot and gorgeous. But she told me it was Amir Khan. As we passed them, my friend winked at him and his security guard invited us on to the table.”
She added, “Amir looked really handsome in his crisp, white shirt and he ended up sitting next to me. We were just enjoying the music and flirting. I really fancied him and he seemed lovely, to be fair. He was acting and talking as though he was single so I had no reason to think otherwise. We were having a great time.”
“He makes me sick. I cannot believe this man. He’s disgusting. His wife had just given birth. I nearly threw up when I saw they were still together. I felt so used. That must be every wife’s nightmare. That poor woman. She needs to bin him off once and for all. Surely this is unforgivable?” said she.
Amir rubbishes the speculations: Contrary to the allegations, the boxer denied all such rumours, claiming those bogus.
While sharing a picture of The Sun‘s spread on his supposed betrayal on Twitter, Khan posted: “What total nonsense! She was wanting a pic but was told to leave by security due to her being too drunk. IMO that’s the reason she sold a story. Quite strange to the fact that there are no photos of us together. Supposedly, I gave her £20, is that all she’s worth?”

This is not the first time when Amir is being accused of having an extramarital affair. The last annum in January, a sex tape of the boxer with an unknown woman was leaked online. The video was allegedly recorded weeks following his wedding to Faryal in 2013.
The couple has been married for five years and has two daughters. It is pertinent to mention here that in August 2017, Amir alleged his wife for cheating on him with heavyweight star Anthony Joshua. Whereas, Faryal accused him of spending time with a 23-year old model. However, the pair reunited shortly after the vendetta when Faryal proclaimed that she was having the second child of the boxer.
