Smuggling poses risk to food security, inflicts irreparable loss on industrial sector: PM Imran
May 14, 2020

ISLAMABAD: Chairing a meeting to review the measures the government has so far taken to check smuggling and overpricing of essential items in the country, Prime Minister Imran Khan stated on Thursday no compromise will be made in action against smuggling.

Minister for Industries and Production Hammad Azhar, Food Security and Research Minister Syed Fakhar Imam, Adviser to the PM on Finance Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh and relevant officials were in attendance in the meeting.

Over the course of the meeting, the premier was informed that an ordinance has been promulgated to curb smuggling of basic food items and currency as it empowers law enforcement agencies to take action against such illegal activities at the country’s airports and frontiers.

Under the new law, the LEAs have powers to take elements involved in smuggling into protective custody as coordination among the district administrations, customs officials and spy agencies has improved.

The prime minister directed all departments concerned to submit a fortnightly report on actions they take against smuggling and the people involved in smuggling. He maintained smuggling is an ulcer for the country’s economy.

He noted smuggling poses risk to food security and inflicts an irreparable loss on the country’s industrial sector.

Prime Minister Khan said the government’s objective to bring down prices of petroleum products was to provide relief to the masses. He said the benefit of reduction in fuel prices must trickle down to people.

All valid questions,unfortunately, nearly after two years, there is only superficial change. The only real change has been the side doing the rhetoric, the common mans suffering has only gotten worse. Pre-election promises, just remain that, promises.

As a well wisher of Pak, Alh with no political affiliation, it is a very depressing situation, and a radical solution is needed. The patient is in ICU and the prognosis is not good.

Anyone have any news regarding the recent clashes with ANA and their TTP buddies? Everyone is tight lipped about it for some reason. From what I know though is that Afghanistan got a massive pounding. The capital of Kunar was also targeted

Brother there are decisions & mess created by current government (though I would always vote for IK instead of PPP & PMLN until a better candidate than IK arises, for me personally IK is better on any given day than corrupt & traitors who sell their motherland & had made Pakistan their Private state & made their Family right to rule over us) this particular decision has to be made because of an other mess left by PMLN goons.

Following is the piece I wrote couple of months ago & I myself am the authenticity of following events as it all happened/happening in front of my eyes.

"Hi

The retired employees of PTV are not being paid their dues. There is almost a list of 300 employees who are in waiting list from past 2.5 years.

The Management is saying they are broke & don't have the funds.

BUT , where did all d savings went from Employees Pension Head ??
Why PTV does not have the money to pay their employees Commutation??

Here comes the dark part,
Thanks to ex-minister of state for Information Maryam Aurangzeb, savings in the Employees Pension Head were used for giving high salaries to contract employees, support lavish n luxurious incentives to higher management & ministry employees & to run & pay the salaries of Maryum Nawaz's infamous Media Cell.

PTV was milked mercilessly & left dried.

Same time, news were coming that Government is thinking of placing PTV under mortgage along other state assets.

Another gift from the Mafia that ruled Pakistan.

An initial inquiry was opened by NAB against ex-minister for misusing these funds & buying assets in most expensive sectors of Islamabad.

Long story short, Every other week there was a huge protest at PTV HQ in Islamabad by retired employees. Last sit in went for almost 2 months before a deal was brokered by special assistant Firdous Aashiq between employees & PTV management.

(One of the factor of Fawad Ch losing his Ministry for Information & Broadcasting was that he was reluctant to solve this mess as he had personal issues with then MD of PTV, so he faced wrath by the retired employees as well)

It was decided to clear Commutation dues of retired employees within 6 months but after few employees were cleared, management cried again of being out of funds.

Now every other day there is a sit-in in red zone & it becomes a headache for Management & the Government as well.

So, here comes the solution, to increase the monthly license fee"



Even pension is not being payed in full amount to some retired employees. This proposition was given in a meeting between PTV Management & ex-employees to generate lost funds & then given to Ministry from where it was presented to PM.

Nothing more than what you have written already, maybe a Heli was also fired upon of PA & then ANA & TTP had that pounding you mentioned. A girl was also injured by a mortar/rpg fired from across border. News is many posts have been obliterated by PA of ANA.
