Khaleeq Kiani

ISLAMABAD: In the face of the serious problem of brain drain, the government has decided to create another layer of super bureaucratic cadre to be called National Executive Service and set up a corruption helpline to improve governance.

Minister for Planning, Development and Reforms Ahsan Iqbal told a meeting of the Senate’s financing committee on the budget for the next financial year on Wednesday that the brain drain had become such a serious issue that the position of chief economist of the Planning Commission had been lying vacant for several years.

LeT claim weakens Sharif’s message to Modi

The Newspaper’s Correspondent

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has told his Indian counterpart in a letter released here on Thursday that he wants to work in harmony with him to resolve all unsettled matters. On the other hand, India, says The Hindu in an analysis, is wary of Lashkar-e-Taiba’s call to avenge this week’s attack on Karachi airport, which the group says was carried out by New Delhi.

While in his letter to Mr Modi, Mr Sharif has sought to put to rest speculation, mainly in opposition ranks in Pakistan, that his visit to Delhi was a failure, the brazen attack in Karachi, which apparently came after the letter to Mr Modi was dispatched, has weakened any basis for optimism the Pakistani leader might have exuded in the well intended missive.
