Meanwhile, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has banned broadcasting of Imran Khan’s speech or comments on Pakistani television channels. In a statement, the organization said, Imran Khan is making baseless allegations against state institutions and spreading hate speech. Earlier, the police failed to arrest Imran Khan on Sunday.

On the other hand, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto said on Sunday, if the promised relief and assistance for the flood victims of Sindh province is not provided, it will be difficult for his party to stay in the central government. Sindh province is known as the stronghold of PPP. Many people are in danger of flood there.

13 and a half billion rupees are needed for the flood victims. The central government has given only 4.7 billion rupees there and the remaining 8.39 billion rupees has been asked to be provided by the government of Sindh province. Bilawal Bhutto said, ‘I will talk about this in the Parliament. If necessary, I will go to the Prime Minister. The promises made to the victims must be fulfilled, otherwise it will become difficult for the PPP to remain part of the government.’
