The PBA and the All Pakistan Newspapers Society (APNS) have had a hard time dealing with the new PTI government.
There have been instances where the minister spoke out against the media houses, their business models, and their continual job and pay cuts.
For example, in December the minister claimed the government had paid around half of the money it owed to the media houses, but none of it was used to pay salaries of workers.


It upset both the media bodies which went on record to clarify and said such statements by the minister could create conflict within the media industry. “Previously also the minister has made disparaging public remarks against the news media industry which is highly regrettable,” the APNS and PBA had said back then.
