Last week, the Prime Minister’s Office had informed the federal cabinet about the complaints that were received on the Pakistan Citizen Portal. Among these complaints were the grievances of government employees. Adviser to the prime minister on institutional reforms and austerity pointed out that the problem had been analysed and presented before the cabinet earlier as well, however, a similar briefing will be presented before the cabinet in a few weeks.
It is pertinent to mention here that it was suggested that the Reform Implementation Committee constituted by the cabinet should oversee the implementation of the directions of the cabinet. Most members, however, felt that heads of ministries should themselves be responsible for completing tasks within the timelines and any difficulties in implementation may be brought before the implementation committee.
