  1. 1. Prepared By: Ata-Ul MunimAseel Shaikh DAWOOD UNIVERSITY OF ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY KARACHI Practical Exploration of two journalists’ script panaches Written by: Ata Ul Munim Department: Computer System Engineering-14 Roll Number: 10 Submittedto: Rafique-Ur-Rehman
  2. 2. Prepared By: Ata-Ul MunimAseel Shaikh Abstract: Two articles selected from two different news sources. One from DailyTimes.com.pk newspaper and the second one is from the Nation.com.pk. In these reports, reporters reported in different ways. They both use direct and indirect language. I have attempted my best to explain the divergence between two news of two different papers. Everyone’s style is different, in this article I have talked about these sequences.

  4. 4. Prepared By: Ata-Ul MunimAseel Shaikh Introduction: It is introduction of Direct and Indirect narration. There are two ways to explain expressions and things, Direct and Indirect narration. The most common example of indirect narration is to tell someone a story. News have both narrations. Take for example the following:  Nawaz Shareef said, “We will finish electricity shortfall”. (It is direct narration)  Nawaz Shareef said that he will finish electricity shortfall. (It is indirect speech)
  5. 5. Prepared By: Ata-Ul MunimAseel Shaikh Daily Times.com.pk Govt working day and night to generate electricity: Nawaz * PM says country will be able to produce 21,000MW to 22,000MW more electricity in next eight to nine years * PML-N inherited energy crisis from previous rulers SAHIWAL: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Friday that his government is toiling day and night to meet the energy shortfall. The prime minister said that all-out effort of the present government on energy generation projects show its commitment and resolve to combat the energy crisis. Addressing the foundation stone-laying ceremony of Sahiwal coal-fired power projects of 1,320 megawatts (two projects of 660MW each), he said the country would be able to produce 21,000MW to 22,000MW more electricity in the next eight to nine years. The prime minister said he had discussed the project with Chinese investors and asked Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to initiate coal-fired power
  6. 6. Prepared By: Ata-Ul MunimAseel Shaikh projects in Punjab. “It is the result of hard work and seriousness of the government that the stone of the project was laid in a short span of two months after the conceiving of the idea,” he added. Nawaz hoped that the project would be completed in two years, instead of the stipulated period of 30 months due to the speedy pace of work. A Chins consortium of Huaneng Shandong and Shandong Ruyi Group has invested in the Sahiwal project, spanning over 1,000 acres of land. The projects will be completed in two phases, with the two units of the first phase, producing 1,320MW, and two units of the second phase each producing 1,000MW. The prime minister thanked the people of China and their government for initiating the Pak-China Economic Corridor under which several development projects would be launched in due course of time. The project is part of the Sino-Pak Economic Corridor Programme and it would be Pakistan’s largest coal-fired power plant, which would be completed by November 2016. Prime Minister Nawaz said the country is facing an acute energy crisis, which the PML-N government had inherited from previous governments. “We are committed to resolving the problem effectively and at the earliest.” He said the project was a reward for the people of Sahiwal as they had given a heavy mandate to the PML-N in the general elections 2013. After laying the foundation stone of the Port Qasim Coal Power Project, he said the Sahiwal project was the third in a row of coal power projects to be set up under the Sino-Pak Economic Corridor Programme. The Nandipur Power Project would start generation formally today (Saturday), which amply proves the government’s seriousness in pursuing power projects, he added. The prime minister said the Sino-Pak Economic Corridor Programme would be a game changer for both Pakistan and China. He elaborated that under the Corridor Programme, a 2700km long highway would be built from Kashghar to Gwadar with industrial zones on its either sides, while a modern airport would also be built in Gwadar. Other plans include upgradation of the Pakistan Railways and Lahore-Karachi

The Corridor Programme, he added, also incorporated coal-fired power projects, including 10 projects at Gaddani, six in Punjab, including Sahiwal, 10 at Thar and two each at Jamshoro and Port Qasim. The prime minister said the Bhasha and Dasu dams would produce 4,500MW each, asserting that he had directed the quarters concerned to ensure early completion of the 969MW Neelam- Jehlam Hydropower Project. Nawaz Sharif said that over the last 65 years, the country has managed to install 23,000MW generation capacity, which had reduced to 13,000MW operational capacity. However, he said, the PML-N government is committed to producing an additional 22,000MW in the next eight to nine years. He said that Pakistan’s economic indicators were good, promising and assuring, which was a good sign for the economy. The prime minister said it was his dream to transform Gwadar into an economic hub like Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore. In his address, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif said that following the vision of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, the PML-N was fulfilling the promises of overcoming the energy crisis made during its election campaign. Shahbaz said that China had always stood by Pakistan in every time of difficulty. He said Chinese economic cooperation and huge investment by undertaking energy and other projects in Pakistan, especially in Punjab, would bring development and prosperity to the region. The Chinese dignitaries, in their address, expressed there resolve to continue cooperation through joint ventures with Pakistan. The Ruyi Group chairman said the consortium would complete the Sahiwal project with full dedication. “It is our passion to invest in Pakistan that is a land of opportunities due to its excellent strategic and geographic position,” he added.
  8. 8. Prepared By: Ata-Ul MunimAseel Shaikh The Nation.com.pk Power generation ‘to double’ in 10 years May 31, 2014 SAHIWAL - Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif says the government is giving top priority to overcoming the power shortage and 21,000MW of electricity will be added to the national grid in the next seven to eight years. “We inherited electricity shortage amongst many other challenges but
  9. 9. Prepared By: Ata-Ul MunimAseel Shaikh now the government is working day and night to overcome them,” he said while was addressing a ceremony after laying foundation stone of a 1320MW coal-fired power plant in Sahiwal on Friday. The project comprising two units of 660MW each will be operational in two years and start adding electricity to the national grid by 2016. Nawaz Sharif said the project will not only help meet the electricity shortage, but also create employment for the people of the Sahiwal district. The PM said foundation stone of two coal power units of 660 megawatt each have recently been laid in Port Qasim. “Nandi Pur power project will be inaugurated tomorrow.... and Rs35 billion have been allocated in the next budget for Diamer-Bhasha dam.” He said the generation capacity at present is 23,000MW but the actual generation of electricity is only 13,000MW, vowing that in next eight to ten years his government would double the power generation. Appreciating Chinese assistance in different projects, Nawaz said both the countries have agreed to construct Pakistan-China Economic corridor which will prove a game changer for both the countries. It will envisage construction of highway from Kashgar to Gwadar which is almost about 2,700 kilometers. It would pass through Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and enter Islamabad through a tunnel. He said development of Gwadar and Gwadar port will also be undertaken by the government and modern airport will also be built there. Special economic zones will be built along this corridor. He said the Economic Corridor also envisages improvement in Railway system and construction of Lahore-Karachi motorway, for which Rs55 billion have been allocated for acquisition of land. He said Karachi-Lahore motorway would pass through Sahiwal and hence benefit the people of this area. Prime Minister recalled the love and emotions of the people of the Sahiwal and said “you are being duly rewarded for standing by the PML-N”, and added he was grateful to the people of Sahiwal for their
  10. 10. Prepared By: Ata-Ul MunimAseel Shaikh support. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif particularly mentioned the tireless efforts and commitment of his brother Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif for making the dream of a developed Pakistan come true. He said Shahbaz motivated the foreign investors for investment in Pakistan. The PM said he met the two investors who were now building the Sahiwal power plant at the Economic Summit in Boao China two months back and within a short time the initial work for the ground breaking of the project was accomplished. He said if a project can start in only two months then there could be no hurdle in its completion in two years. He hoped the project would bring 30 per cent returns to the investors. He also thanked the Chinese companies for their untiring efforts to help Pakistan overcome the energy crisis. The prime minister mentioned that ten power units will be set up at Gadani, six in Punjab, ten at Thar, and hoped the country’s energy needs will be fulfilled. He said the economic indicators of the country were positive and GDP has risen to 4.1%, while manufacturing was up by 5.5%, and foreign exchange reserves have increased enormously. Addressing the ceremony, Punjab CM Shahbaz Sharif said agreements have been signed with China for generation of 20,000MW of electricity in the next seven years. He said more power plants will be installed in the province to meet the energy to steer it out of darkness. Shahbaz paid special thanks to ex-MPA Wallayat Shah Khagga, whom he called as “England Shah”, and his son MPA Khizar Hayyat Khagga for their special cooperation for acquisition of land. On this occasion federal minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif and state minister Abid Sher Ali , Punjab minister Malik Nadeem Kamran, MNA Peer Imran Ahmad Shah, Sahiwal Commissioner Muhammad Saddique and other officials were present. The ceremony was also attended by a large number of notables of the area.
  11. 11. Prepared By: Ata-Ul MunimAseel Shaikh Conclusion: In these two news we see that everyone has a dissimilar path to identify something. In the first clause, the author use direct speeches more than a second article’s author. He describes briefly and use strong language. On the other side, second author use simple and soft language. He wrote simple but it can be well seen. Both have Direct and Indirect speeches, but they used different sentences spoken by PM Nawaz Sharif. These news are same, only they look different because of different ways of getting out. You can find out the difference in highlighted lines. Those lines have the same sense, but with different words. Journalist elaborates in their own way. They don’t change Direct speech, but in Indirect speech they use their wordings. In highlighted lines, it appears different but their sense of saying are same.
