PM Khan orders investigation into drug imports from India
Prime Minister Imran Khan took notice of the import of traditional medicines from India, under the cover of life-saving drugs, and has ordered Special Assistant for Accountability Shehzad Akbar to investigate.
The question of importing traditional drugs from India under the pretext of life-saving drugs came up in the last cabinet meeting after a review was tabled of the importation of 429 more drugs which was refused.
Meanwhile, the Office of the Prime Minister has released a red-letter for the second time to 16 ministries for non-implementation of federal cabinet decisions. It said the ministries concerned had taken eight decisions but not enforced five, for which a duration of 21 days was granted.
The Prime Delivery Unit will report to the cabinet, and any non-implementation will be included in the report.
The ministries have been given the duty, according to sources, to formulate rules and regulations for vacancies and also to deal with the question of seniority and the promotion of government employees.
