  • Telenor tried the same strategy in the past with Anjum Rehman which was total failure Just because people are media personnels doesn’t mean that they can run PR department in the fierce telecom industry … This may be a step in the wrong direction…

  • i wonder wat is the use of such a story… you can cover about CEOs, CTO’s but not everybody in the telecom sompany… Guys may be managers or senior managers… such things keep on happening every now and then… but it appears that it is being taken just to please them or earn a soft place… waste of time and effort honestly

  • Usman Ishaq ko media pe aanay ka itna shouq hai kay un ka bas nahi chalta kay geo tv ki news woh khud parha karen.
    ab aik khabrain parhnay wala banda zong ka PR department chalaye ga.. wah re zong..
    sales ka banda agar management chala sakta hai zong mein toh PR b chal he jaye gee.
