Federal Cabinet approves fencing of Pak-Afghan border
ISLAMABAD: The federal cabinet on Thursday approved proposal for fencing and lighting of Pak-Afghan border as part of a security measure on the border line, ARY News reported.
According to sources, the work on the border fencing will now begin after its approval from the federal cabinet.
The federal cabinet meeting also decided to continue accountability drive and action against corruption across the country. ‘More decisions will be taken to bring back looted money to the country’, the meeting unanimously decided.
The top government officials, however, remained inconclusive regarding carving out Gilgit-Baltistan as a separate province. The decision to make GB a constitutional province was deferred by the prime minister.
Meanwhile, the 100-day performance report of the PTI-led government was also presented before the Cabinet meeting. All the ministers unveiled their performance in first 100 days of governance. The reports were submitted to Prime Minister Imran Khan.
PM Khan had received a 100-day performance report of different ministries, outlining ‘feats and failures’ of the ministers in 100 days of governance on Nov 27.
According to the report, Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed and Minister of State for Communications Murad Saeed appeared to be having a tough contest in terms of edging past one another.
The report says that both the ministers completed their 100-day tasks in time. The ministry headed by Sheikh Rasheed registered an income of more than Rs 2 billion, while Murad Saeed’s ministry saw an addition of Rs 3 billion to the revenue in first 100 days in office.
