President Musharraf was in Multan to open a new PTV channel in Seraiki, president’s security entourage noticed that Secretary Information and Chairman PTV Syed Anwar Mahmood and MD PTV Yousaf Baig Mirza slipped out of their hotel rooms after midnight to spend time in a room that was not on the list of the officially booked rooms for the guests of the ceremony. Secretary Information and MD PTV thought no one knew what they were doing. What they do not know is that almost the entire Caretaker cabinet ministers or at least those who interact with PTV, came to know next day what was going on. Both gentlemen went to spend time with a young, twenty-something female anchorperson of PTV.
Her name is Saadia Afzaal, is a divorced tall and skinny girl who
joined PTV a few years back traveling in public transport wagons that ply the roads of capital. But now this young girl receives a monthly salary of Rs. 1,50,000 in addition to highest bonuses in the history of PTV for someone like her worth Rs. 1,00,000, and Rs. 5,600 as telephone allowance. Other newly hired girls, bimbos who don’t know wat ‘news’ is, have been hired for having great ‘assets’. Saadia Afzaal is getting all that money that belongs to the people All this to do a show on TV maybe 2 or 3 times a month. But obviously it is the private shows that really matter.
