KHANKAH DOGRAN: People here on Monday protested against suspension of Geo News transmission for the last four days. They said Geo News transmission was restored earlier on July 1, but was suspended again on July 4. When people called the city cable network offices to know the reasons for suspension of the Geo News transmission again, they were told that their receiver had developed some fault, and that Geo News would be restored the next day after rectifying the fault.
People were, however, surprised that if really there was a problem then why other channels continued to appear on the cable. A large number of citizens complained that Geo News has not been restored despite passage of four days. They demanded of the government authorities and the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) to take notice of the illegal suspension of Geo News immediately.
