Information Minister Sherry Rehman resigned

According to sources Information Minister Sherry Rehman has resigned from her office of Information Minster in wake of ban on TV Channels particularly GEO TV and AJJ TV by the Government. For last several hours a demand got momentum for her resignation. Sherry Rehman had promised multiple times that she will resign if there are any curbs on the Media. Today the PPP Establishment has blocked Geo News ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY and AAJ in major cities of Pakistan.

For many it is an image makeover though. However her resignation along with few others including Raza Rabbani reveals clear rift in Government House. For many an interesting battle ahead.

While President Spokesman Farhatullah Babar has said that she has not resigned. Whether Sources said that her resignation ahs yet not accepted by the government.
Ministry of Information has yet not confirmed this news.

  • I being a PPPP supporter appreciate the courage of Sherry Rehman to resign from her post.It clearly states that she is not in fovour of Zardari policies which are not PPPP policies.

    Unfortunately PPPP has not followed Mohatarma Benazir Bhutto policies for which they got people mandate in 2008.PPPP is no longer the party which people knew but it has become a one man show.

    I think that the real PPPP politicans like Yousaf raza gillani, Nahid Khan, Safdar Abbasi, senator baig etc, are all against the Zardari stand(not PPPP stand) of not restoring the real judiciary.

  • If this is how it is suppose to derail the democracy in Pakistan, i believe that this will only be the last chance of our retrieval.
    May God Bless Pakistan and Pakistanis.
