ISLAMABAD - Advisor to PM on Inter-Provincial Coordination and Chairman of the Implementation Commission Senator Mian Raza Rabbani briefed Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani about the current status of implementation process on the 18th Amendment. He called on Prime Minister Gilani at Prime Minister's House on Sunday where besides discussing the overall political situation in the country he discussed the hurdles coming in the way of the devolution of some federal ministries to provinces in the light of the 18th Amendment. The matter of the employees of the ministries being devolved to the provinces was also discussed in the meeting and it was decided that not even a single employee of these ministries would be rendered jobless and all of them would be absorbed in the federal government departments after the devolution of these ministries to the provinces. Senator Mian Raza Rabbani informed the PM that the ministries of education, tourism, social welfare and special education, labour and manpower and culture would be formally handed over to the provinces by the end of current month. It is pertinent to mention here that the ministries of population welfare, special initiatives, Zakat and Ushr, youth affairs and local government and rural development were already devolved to the provinces in the first phase. The process of devolution of the ministries to the provinces would be completed by June 30. Sources aware of the deliberations informed The Nation that Prime Minister Gilani wanted to make Senator Mian Raza Rabbani a part of the future cabinet as a full-fledged federal minister but once again Mian Raza Rabbani had politely refused to take the portfolio and said that he would continue serving the cause of the party in his present capacity. These sources further said that Prime Minister Gilani had held out assurance to Senator Mian Raza Rabbani that the government would extend complete support to him in the devolution process and in this connection no hindrance from any quarter would be tolerated, as it was now the constitutional requirement to devolve these ministries to the provinces.
