The PTI government is already facing grave challenges like economy, Kashmir issue and political unrest in country and many more. But it’s not understandable why they are not trying to overcome challenges at least which can be handled in the easiest way. The administration of the federal departments has become worst and worst after every coming day. One of the most key department under the direct command of Federal Government is FIA but PTI Government failed to even appoint its permanent DG besides the lapse of about two months and practically is running by two DGs at present one is DG Pakistan and other DG International. The DG International who after giving clean chit to the three principal accused from the Judge video scandal is continuously travelling abroad. Astonishingly his latest visit to attend Interpol General Assembly meeting at Santiago Chile, was as DG FIA; whereas on the other side Dr. Mujeeb-ur-Rehman who is actually holding the charge as DG FIA is officially visiting the FIA offices all over Pakistan. Pakistan is facing serious threats of being black listed by FATF which has given final deadline of February 2020 for compliance of targets given. FIA which has to implement Anti Money Laundering Act 2010 and to achieve targets of FATF; is missing its permanent head. Although Dr. Mujeeb is a very hard working person and a man of integrity but in absence of full fledge powers as DG FIA, he himself is handicap in proper implementation. The DG International, who is performing Umras and going to perform 26th Umra soon, is travelling abroad on pleasure trips on the expenses of national exchequer. The Court has already issued him show cause notices and personal appearance and even wrote to the government for taking action against him. But he neither appeared before the court, although in Islamabad and silently correcting his past doing from his official residence in Islamabad, nor Secretary MoI took action against him as ordered by the Court, so far. The DG International was appointed by the N League, an open opponent of PTI Government, who filled FIA with PSP officers who have close links with anti PTI regime. Mr. Asmatullah Junejo, who is at present running establishment of FIA, was appointed by N-League as SSP Islamabad for taking action against PTI & PAT sitin at Islamabad after refusal of Mr. Muhammad Ali Nekokara for accepting illegal orders of N-League government for taking action against participants of Dharna. Mr. Imran Khan himself praised the action of Mr. Muhammad Ali Nekokara everywhere, who was later on dismissed from service. But Mr. Asmatullah Junejo who took action on the will of N-League is enjoying his posting in FIA, directly under the command of Federal Government. Interestingly, he is the complainant in the anti-terrorism case which was registered against PTI including Imran Khan himself, Asad Umer, Aleem Khan and many other main leaders of PTI. There is no rocket science to understand that the sympathies of loyalties of Mr. Asmatullah Junejo will be with whom. In the same manner another key posting in FIA is Director Administration and the man holding is that is Mr. Mirwaise the real nephew of Asfand Yar Wali. More interesting thing is that his elder brother is Chief Secretary KPK. Fingers are crossed that hopefully Mr. Imran Khan, no doubt, is facing many mountain of challenges which requires more time to overcome, but at least the action which can be immediately taken should be taken from emerging threat being black listed by FATF. An immediate action should be to overhaul institutions, including FIA, by removing rogue elements within department, anti PTI, and a minimum of appointment of Mr. Mujeeb-ur-Rehman as permanent DG FIA so that he can work independently out of the influence of DG International who is also a court absconder.
