Dawn media group didn’t extended any apology to Mr. Raja Parvez Ashraf over publishing unethical reporting while publishing the news about acquittal of Raja Parvez Ashraf in another Rental Power Reference by NAB Court.

But only Dawn media group had not published, on-aired unethical reporting against PPP and Raja Parvez Ashraf in the context of Rental Power Projects but our all mainstream media groups’ TV channels, newspapers, official websites were repeating same unethical practice while making report on Power Rental Projects cases. Geo News, daily Jang of Mir Shakeel-ur-rahman was also among those media groups, who were running a propaganda campaign against the PPP and its leadership on Rental Power Projects.
