No one has the right to humiliate ministers, says Fawad
web hamari: The Minister of Information and Dissemination, Fawad Chaudhry, expressed his disappointment on Thursday about the treatment received in the Senate.
By informing the media after a meeting of the federal cabinet in Islamabad, he said that no one has the right to humiliate the ministers.
“We should apologize in the Senate for the reason why we asked where poor people’s money was spent … where the $ 4.2 trillion dollars donated to the government of Balochistan were spent … Who is responsible of economic terrorism, “Fawad asked.
He questioned how the House can be run without ministers, adding that they can not carry out their tasks if the attitude of the president of the Senate does not change.
He said that Defense Minister Pervaiz Khattak was given the task of analyzing the issue and presenting a report.
Fawad said it was strange that when the PTI leadership speaks about corruption and the rights of the poor, the privilege of the members of the House is violated, but the privilege of the people is not violated by the looting and looting of state resources .
The president of the Senate, Sadiq Sanjrani, today imposed a ban on information minister Fawad Chaudhry attending the Senate session for not presenting an apology to the upper chamber of Parliament.
The minister also said that the cabinet discussed the issue of security of tenure of high-level bureaucrats in detail.
It has been suggested that federal secretaries should be appointed provisionally for a period of six months in a ministry and, after successful completion of that term, their appointment will be extended for two and a half years. During this period they will not be transferred or removed from their positions, he added.
He said Prime Minister Imran Khan firmly believes that the bureaucracy should be free of all political interference.
The minister said that the appointment of bureaucrats should be linked to their performance and not to political connections. He said the cabinet decided to form a cabinet committee headed by Shehzad Arbab, to analyze the bureaucratic tenure issues and present their suggestions to the cabinet.
Other members of the Committee will be Defense Minister Pervez Khattak, Minister of Railways Shaikh Rasheed Ahmad and Adviser to the Prime Minister on institutional reforms, Dr. Ishrat Hussain.
The minister said the cabinet made a decision on the rehabilitation of 193 state-owned companies when deciding to establish the company Sarmaya Pakistan. The Prime Minister will head the Board of Governors of this company, while three ministers will be its members and the best professionals from different fields will be hired to be part of the Board of Governors.
It will deal with the affairs of all state-owned companies and will give suggestions to the cabinet to carry them out in a professional manner.
Fawad said the cabinet also discussed the case of Afsheen Baksh, a Danish woman of Pakistani descent, whose two daughters were taken to Pakistan by force against the ruling of a Danish court. It has been decided that a lawyer will make a preliminary investigation and then a final decision will be made about the stay of the minor girls in Pakistan or the repatriation to Denmark, since we respect the decisions of the foreign courts.
He said that the cabinet also decided that all Pakistani prisoners imprisoned abroad will receive legal assistance, since ensuring their interests is the responsibility of the government. He said the government is also committed to bringing Dr. Aafia Siddiqui back to the country and every effort will be made in this regard.
He said that the cabinet decided to postpone the budget of the National Technology Council until its approval by the Economic Coordination Committee.
