ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has directed all concerned to evolve a mechanism to regulate the use of social media for constructive purposes and nation-building process.

Chairing a meeting, he directed Chairmen Pakistan Telecommunication Authority and NADRA to consult all stakeholders including the service-providers, civil society and mainstream media for the purpose.
