Good morning, *|MERGE1|*.  It’s September 21. Happy Tuesday! 
Yesterday, we hosted some female journalists from KPK. It was a pleasant experience to meet young motivated girls, with clear ambitions for the future. What surprised me was the fact that most of them were still doing their undergraduate degrees. 

Also in an interesting development, Sindh Government has decided to arrest unvaccinated people in the province, following the new directions from the NCOC. So please get vaccinated!

Rain is expected today in Lahore, Islamabad and Peshawar.

Exclusive: Govt hiding list of gifts received by PM Khan? 

The federal government has denied giving out information about the exchange of gifts between Prime Minister Imran Khan and other heads of state, following a citizen’s petition against the matter. 

What govt say? 

Journalist Aamir Saeed Abbasi shared a picture of a notice on Twitter in which the government has termed the gifts as ‘classified’. 

In the notice, it is mentioned that the matter is reflective of inter-state relations and the disclosure of such information potentially damages the interest of Pakistan in the context of international relations.

 What do our sources say?      

The Current’s sources have revealed that there is nothing that’s deliberately being hidden. They said that some countries do not like disclosing their gifts so they are marked ‘classified’.                                                                                                                  
According to them, a list may soon be provided of gifts without mentioning countries’ names.
