Imran Khan Government Sacks Pak Channel Head For "Begging" Slip-Up

After Imran Khan Trip China Backs Pak On Dispute With India Nuke Group

He was on Sunday addressing a ceremony at the Central Party School (of the Communist Party of China) in Beijing which was shown live by the Pakistan Television Corporation (PTV) when the error happened.

PM Imran Khan also briefed the COAS regarding his visit to China.

The typo reportedly remained onscreen for a 20 seconds or so before it was rectified. In the top left corner, where it says the location of the event, the screen read "Begging". "Strict action has been initiated under rules against concerned officials", the official twitter handle of PTV News tweeted.

The faux pas is particularly scathing since Khan is looking to secure support from China to overcome massive economic hurdles in the country.

What should the Steelers do with Le'Veon Bell?

The notification of Hassan's removal underlines that the decision is taken after approval of Federal Minister for Information, Fawad Chaudhry.

Prime Minister Imran Khan's visit to China from November 2-5 has moved the overall economic relationship between the two friendly countries to the next level, according to a statement issued by the Ministry of Finance (MoF) on Tuesday. The broadcaster later apologised via Twitter, calling the incident "regrettable".

China has invested tens of billions of dollars in Pakistan in recent years as part of its Belt and Road Initiative - which aims to link the economies of Asia, Africa and Europe via huge infrastructural projects.

The premier is now visiting China to seek Chinese assistance in boosting the country's economy.
