Chaudhry emphasized that the publicity should not be seen as an event-based activity but has to be a sustained ongoing process and the story ideas must be shared by the departments further to be converted into concrete stories in collaboration with media units. He added that a positive story planned and placed well in the media will help change the course of any ongoing project or implementation towards success.
