Journalists boycott Sheikh Rasheed’s press conference
Journalists in Karachi boycotted a press conference held by Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed on Friday.
The minister had to face the boycott when he asked some reporters not to force fellow journalists to hold protest against the ongoing crisis gripping the media industry.
He said he can choose not to hold the press conference if the protest continues.
When confronted, the minister said he was the one who had announced concession in railway fares for the journalists.
