Pervaiz Rashid also used to say, “Only President and Prime Minister have the right to address the nation on state television,” if there are no restriction to address live with public and allow only a single member to address then they will have to give chance to more than 400 members. If allowed there will be continuous speeches throughout the year.

During last PTI’s sit in before the Parliament house, Imran Khan also want to address live using PTV but PTV chairman Ataul Haq Qasmi rejected Imran Khan’s demand because it is allowed to Prime Minister and President of the state.
