Lahore : Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Chaudhry Fawad Hussain on Friday said that Pakistan
Tehreek e Insaf government was bringing reforms in bureaucracy to enhance efficiency. We want to change the typical mind set in bureaucracy, he stated in an interview with private news channel programme.
The government wanted to bridge the gap being observed in
communication, he said.
There was also need to do capacity building in the institutions, the information minister said.
Lamenting on the slow process of disposing of cases of
political figures like Zardari and Nawaz Sharif, he said that the
political leaders knew well about the system and nobody could harm them due to slackness in system.
It was strange that no charges were framed against Nawaz
Sharif and Maryam Nawaz. This was a system flaw which the government wanted to rectify or revamp the system through reforms in days to come, Fawad Chaudhry said. There was need to address governance issue, he added.
To a question, he said that PPP had been ruling over Sindh
for the last twenty years and the same was the case in Balochistan and both the provinces lag behind in development. The previous governments did nothing for Sindh and Balochistan development, he said.
Besides, agriculture reforms, he said that the government
was focusing on poverty alleviation and better delivery system so that promises made with the people before forming the government could be fulfilled in a befitting manner.
To a question, he said in Punjab, we found that some
traditional political leaders or dynasty had controlled the powers.
There was need to change or bring reforms there too, he said.
As far as progress in PIA and other institutions was
concerned, he said everybody knows whats going on in these
In reply to a question, he said that soon the big fish
involved in corruption would be behind the bars.
Appreciating the working of Hammad Azhar and Khusro
Bakhtiar, he said they are working very hard to streamline the system in their respective fields.
He said reforms in NAB are imperative for achieving results.
