Reporters Without Borders in The World Media Criticized

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) in the world media criticized on Wednesday that Prime Minister Imran Khan rejected the country's media reforms. In a recent visit to the United States, PM Khan said Pakistan's suppression of media freedom is "a joke.

Quickly replace people around you

Because you are not very well known, it is clear that you are going to have to quickly replace people around you, or intentionally conceal the facts given under your responsibility," said Christophe Deloire, secretary general of RSF. RSF argued Khan was "obscene" to say that freedom of speech has flourished in Pakistan. Given the recent surge in press freedom violations listed in the RSF statement.

Deloire said, One of the most free press in the world, the rumor, is clearly different from pornography. He urged Khan to "ensure that Pakistani journalists exercise their jobs through complete security and complete independence. Trust in the Pakistani nation and democracy is at stake, he said. In early July, the government launched an attack on the media and linked key reports of potential rebellion.

Also in July, after a press conference with opposition leader Maryam Nawaz, many private broadcasters stopped broadcasting. In recent years, as the government announced its crackdown on social networks and the traditional media houses that criticize the pressures of government authorities are widely self-censored, the space for dissent has diminished.

Industrial activities difficult for two consecutive days

Monsoon rain continued to hit the city, making trade and industrial activities difficult for two consecutive days. Most wholesale markets have been partially closed for commercial activity due to the opening of retail outlets. General Director Mohammad Ahmed Shahshi (Tohir Itehad) said until dawn that merchants in the old town area were so disturbed by the accumulation of rainwater and sewage and long-time outages that they could not open the store.

He said government authorities, including Sindh Governor, mayor of Karachi and local authorities, have not taken any practical steps to remove rainwater from major markets. All Karachi Tajir Itehad (AKTI) president Atiq Mir said that about 60-70 percent of the major markets, including wholesale trade in the old town, were closed on Tuesday. He added that these markets were completely closed on Monday.

The market did not open because of the massive power outbreak lasting more than 20 hours, and until Tuesday evening there are still no power supplies in many markets," he added. Mir said that opening the market faced difficulties for buyers. He claimed that traders suffered losses of about Rs 10 billion on Mondays and Tuesdays as rain, the collapse of the local institution, the accumulation of rain on the market, the disappearance of public transport, and the prolonged blackout.

On the other hand, the industrial sector showed a mixed trend in terms of workers' work and productivity. However, the situation in the field industrial area deteriorated on Tuesday. Saleman Parekh, chairman of the Association of SAI (SAI) president, said that the attendance of workers and employees is much less than the day before, compared to Tuesday.

Because of the blackout

We could not get enough workers to work because we could not get a good night's sleep, and the availability of public transportation was low and the rainwater accumulated in many areas made exercise difficult. It was estimated that the attendance rate was low and that the production activity of 3,600 industries reached 40-45%. We are trying to call workers on Sundays to cover at least two days of lost production," he added.

Khursheed Ahmed said the situation is about the same, with employee attendance at around 20%. However, production on Tuesday was much better than production around 40pc before the day before. Container movements to transport goods to the port were relatively normal and the local power situation improved, he added.

Meanwhile, the North Karachi Association of Trade Industries (NKATI) and Syed Tariq Rashid said that the work environment was worsened by only 30pc out of 2,500. The remaining troops were closed, or many workers were not present, so they could not produce anything. "Despite the fact that 90pc workers went to the factory, 10pc production was recorded only on the factory on Monday," he added.

Faraz-ur-Rehman, Vice Chairman of the Korangi Chamber of Commerce and Industry, had a good attendance rate compared to 50% of production on Monday, so the region with more than 70% of production was relatively good in more than 3,500 regions "He said.
