The gathering he alludes to is a pool of most loved writers that progressive governments have spoiled, paying for their airfares, inns, and so on each time the leader or the president ventures abroad, or locally.
Sehbai, talking in the program Live with Dr Shahid Masood on NewsOne Television, named senior Jang columnist Saleh Zaafir (envisioned), as a symbol in such manner. He said there were so many others. They are paid money for such excursions and are relied upon to pile adulate on the administration of the day, he said.
He at that point unveiled that there was another ‘Facilitated Group’ that included such writers as Najam Sethi, Imtiaz Alam, Syed Talat Hussain, and Maleeha Lodhi.
He said that Imtiaz Alam used to get remunerated by the past government after his auto got stolen each year.
He said that such individuals utilize the media. “The most recent illustration is of Najam Sethi. Where did he originate from? He originated from the media however then proceeded to end up as the overseer boss clergyman, turned into the director of Pakistan Cricket Board and propelled Pakistan Super League.”
He said this ‘complex gathering’ does greater things than the ‘helicopter gathering’.
Sehbai imagined that the new Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry will most likely be unable to handle and control the ‘crocodiles’ of the media.
He also shared his views on Accountability of media:
