Who is responsible for taking the important decision of transferring control of ISI to Interior Ministry when Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani was flying to US? It was imperative to consult the army chief and cabinet and to also get this debated in the Parliament. But the PPP did not even bother to take its coalitions partners into confidence. When will our inept ruling elite learn to believe in collective wisdom? While the constitution does allow the Prime Minister to amend rules of business and give ISI to the interior Ministry, the pertinent question is why should it be done at all? What were the objectives behind the attempt to take control of ISI at this stage when a civilian democratic government is yet to consolidate its position? ISI has been under the army with majority of its staff in khakis and in active army job. The real boss of ISI, therefore, is the army chief. The Prime Minister and his cabinet do not control the administrative, operational and financial aspects of ISI. ISI only reports to the Prime Minister. -ENGR S.T.
