No ban will be imposed on social media: PM Khan


We will not let any ban be imposed on any social media application, Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Saturday. But at the same time, we also can’t let anyone insult or spread false information about government organisations or the people working for them, the premier pointed out.

PM Khan took notice of the delay in the preparation of social media regulations by the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority and Ministry of Information Technology.
