Pakistan PM calls for reforms in civil bureaucracy
“It is a point of concern that various officers, even those at the senior level, are lacking in competence and initiative which is hampering service delivery to the public,” the prime minister said chairing a high-level meeting at his house here, Dawn reported.

Sharif directed that a detailed report should be submitted to him within four months’ time in order to bring about holistic reforms in the structure of the civil service, including in the accountability mechanism for civil servants.

The meeting also reviewed the implementation of a reforms agenda of the government, which included deliberations on the setting up of a monitoring, evaluation and delivery cell in the premier’s office.

“The government is focusing on an agenda of economic growth and structural reforms both in the long and short term. Civil service reforms should be oriented towards ensuring welfare of the people,” Sharif remarked.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has decided to monitor the ministries of Water and Power, Petroleum, Finance and the Planning Commission, following crisis like petrol shortages that has left his government red-faced many times over the past few months.

Sharif government is under pressure to address problems faced by the common people as the Prime Minister yesterday visited two commercial areas of the capital to personally see the prices of commodities, the Dawn reported.
