SAEED MINHAS ISLAMABAD: Open violation of its own rules and regulations, harassment of cable operators and obliging the big wigs associated with the presidency seems to have become the order of the day at Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) these days. Investigations into the affairs of the regulatory authority, meant to streamline private TV and radio stations in the country, reveals that other than violating their mandated rules and regulations, the authority is busy in pleasing the ousted rulers while ensuring that new one does not get a smooth sailing in the media. Informed sources con?rmed that besides obliging former interior minister Rehman Malik with an illegal TV license and shifting the monopoly of cable operations in Lahore and Islamabad from the Salman Taseer family-operated World Call to an in- form media house with established links to the Presidency (Lakhanis), PEMRA is leaving no stone unturned to not only make big bucks in this process but more importantly doing it in the name of the Nawaz government which is yet to settle down in Islamabad. In the same go a news license has also been issued to a channel which was supposed to be a drama channel, informed the sources. Under this new shock and awe policy unleashed by a newly inducted coterie of officials led by DG Operations Rana Tahir, a leading private channel has been given another license for airing their ?fth outlet, whereas PEMRA rules do not allow more than four channels to any single media group.

This list shows how much popular PML-N is in public. Better governance in Punjab and good viewpoint on different issues help them get support of people in Election 2013.
