Pakistani Information Minister Sherry Rehman tendered her resignation after she failed to convince President As if Ali Zardari to lift the ban on a private TV channel transmission, local newspaper The News reported on Saturday.

Sherry met Zardari and appealed to him to lift the ban on Geo News TV channel, the transmission of which was blocked in most parts of the country, said the report.

Sherry kept requesting him to remove the ban, which she said would bring a bad name to the Pakistan People's Party government but Zardari did not take the advice, according to The News.

On the direct order of Zardari, the transmission of Geo News was blocked in the wake of speculations that some programs of the channel could provoke public resentment against the President, according to a report of The News.

The resignation of Sherry has not been officially confirmed.
