ISLAMABAD - Federal Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira Monday said the recent promotions and postings in bureaucracy were made on merit in a transparent manner. The minister was replying to questions of media persons after distributing certificates among the participants of a workshop for journalists at National Press Club. Talking about the renaming NWFP, he said the Constitution would have to be amended for this purpose and hoped that the Committee on Constitutional Reforms would reach at some consensus on the issue. He said the NWFP Assembly demanding to rename the province as Pakhtoonkhwa had passed several resolutions. On the issue of former president Musharrafs trial, he said the PPPs stance on the matter was very much clear and if the PML-N wanted to table a resolution in the National Assembly, it was within its right. The PPP has to take along its allied parties. We have to take their viewpoints into account, he added. Speaking on the present sugar crisis, he said there was no shortage of the commodity in the country but only problem was cartelisation. We as a nation should discourage the cartels by cutting down the use of commodities which are in short supply, he said, adding the per capita sugar consumption in Pakistan was double as compared to India and was three times more than China. APP adds: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira has said that the PML-N can satisfy its wish of bringing resolution in the House about Pervez Musharrafs trial. Instead of giving threats, the PML-N can satisfy its wish, he said. Kaira maintained that the PML-N had a right to demand the trial of former President Pervez Musharraf.
