There will also be a question from Datuk Hasanuddin Mohd Yunus (PH-Hulu Langat) to Communications and Multimedia Minister about drama scripts that use characters with the title “Tan Sri” and “Datuk Seri” who are engaged in immoral activities, like having illicit affair and are corrupt, as it gives those having the titles a bad image.
