Rise and shine,*|MERGE1|*. It’s October 13 and Wednesday! 
My colleague just told me that the reason we are facing internet issue these days is due to a submarine cable fault in the UAE. And all this time I was cursing my bechara wifi router, restarting it again and again. Khair, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority says that they are monitoring the situation. Hope the problem resolves soon. 

It is a full bright sunny day, no chance of wintery hawa anytime soon.

‘PM Khan is the authority in appointing the DG ISI’: Fawad Chaudhry

Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Tuesday confirmed the meeting between Prime Minister Khan and Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa held on Monday. 

Fawad’s statement: 

“Gen Bajwa and the prime minister have close and good relations … they are ideal relations between the civilian and military leadership,” he said, adding that the Prime Minister’s Office would “never take a step that will disrespect the army and vice versa”.
Commenting on the appointment of the Director-General (DG) of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency, Chaudhry said, “PM Khan is the authority in appointing the DG ISI,” further adding that “all legal methods will be adopted in the appointment of the new director-general”. 


It has been almost a week since Lieutenant (Lt) General Nadeem Ahmed Anjum was appointed as DG ISI, the post previously held by Lt Gen Faiz Hameed.

Interesting developments. Let’s see what happens next.

Balochistan CM denies stepping down as BAP chief

Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Alyani denied that he had formally resigned as the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) president, as the party named its vice-president, Zahoor Ahmed Buledi, as BAP’s acting chief.

According to Dawn, the chief minister said neither had he stepped down as the party president nor had he any such plans. 

Blaming the “irresponsible social media [users]” for the confusion, he said no factions were being created in BAP.

What happened earlier? 

The news of CM Jam Kamal’s resignation had surfaced earlier this month, amid a deepening political crisis in Balochistan and calls by BAP lawmakers and others for him to step down as the chief minister.

Dawn had reported at the time that the chief minister had announced his resignation in a tweet, wherein he had asked the party’s central organiser and general secretary to “announce BAP party elections at the earliest”.

You can see his tweet and let me know what do you think of it? To me, it seems like a farewell message.
