Hits of the #Pakistani #hitman..!

Few suggestions to improve economy on fast track after the great escape of the hitman..!

According to a news item reported today, our federal government is moving fast in the direction of further burdening Pakistan, with the borrowing of fresh loans.

Link:
Amid declining reserves, Pakistan set to start borrowing journey https://tribune.com.pk/story/1564936/2-amid-declining-reserves-pakistan-set-start-borrowing-journey/‬

As we are well aware that currently Pakistan’s total internal and external debt liability stands at a whopping number of $250 billion, which is almost equal to our GDP of under $300 billion. [ Finance Minister Ishaq Dar is often accused of manipulating figures to show reduced fiscal deficit as well as the total debt that according to the central bank rose to Rs22.2 trillion in 2016-17 compared to Rs14.8 trillion of 2013. The latest figure of the total debt stands at Rs25 trillion. link…https://tribune.com.pk/story/1544770/2-ticking-economic-bomb/ ]

Every sane person in Pakistan knew well in advance that Mr. Ishaq Dar will ultimately sink the country economically; and leave it after recklessly borrowing loans, with interest rates as high as 8.25%, which till date, stands as a world record, for highest interest rate.

The solution for Pakistan’s economic malaise can not and never be found in getting loans to repay the loans and to build false foreign exchange reserves with loans.

The cardinal rule to build a sustainable economy is to live within the means; for which austerity is the secret of success.

In Pakistan, we can easily control our expenses, if the following statement is adopted as a motto/mission; and implemented as an official policy, and is also displayed in the offices of the civil and military bureaucracy, just below the portrait of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah Sahab:

“Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen and ask yourself if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him.”

Moreover, the following austerity measures may be adopted on emergency basis till our budget deficit is overcome and total government debt is repaid:

1. No officially paid foreign treatment for any government official or public representative be allowed without exception.

2. No government official or public representative be allowed air travel (domestic & foreign) in business/first class, on official expense.

3. No foreign tours for government officials and public representatives on official expense, without the permission/clearance of the chairman NAB. In this regard, for the foreign visits of President, Prime Minister and CM’s, no more than two persons shall accompany them on official expense.

4. All public sector organisations/corporations/
companies and sports organisations falling under the purview of the federal and provincial governments of Pakistan, must be headed by a private sector person, who should be suitably qualified, experienced and duly recommended by the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry/PEC/PMDC and other such relevant apex bodies. Moreover, all such organisations must be bound to send their internal, external and special audit reports to the Chairman NAB on regular basis.

5. Immediate issuance of orders for 50% reduction in protocol expenses (specially the motorcade) of all VVIP and other government and public servants and representatives.

6. No subsidised food and other items be allowed to be served, in the canteens/restaurants/kitchens of the President/PM houses/offices, Senate, National and Provincial assemblies.

7. Complete bar/ban on any development allocation to the parliamentarians.

8. Total ban on announcements of funds/packages for development schemes by the President/PM, CM’s and anyone for any area, community, scheme, organisation, body or NGO. All such decisions should be mentioned in an organised manner in the annual budget.

9. No announcements by any government functionary of rewards for players/board employees of sports board/body/Federation etc from the national exchequer, as was recently done in July last, to the cricket players and employees of the PCB, after the victory in the Champions Trophy, when besides players, board employees were also given crores of Rupees from the national exchequer of the country, which is obtaining loans to repay its debt.

10. Strict moratorium on purchase of news cars/vehicles by any government department or organisation, before 10 years use of the old car.

11. Complete ban on official entertainment (Breakfast, Hi-Tea, Lunch or dinner) except one dish serving for any local guests and two dishes for foreign guests.

12. No payment (in any official legal case of government or its allied departments/organisations) to any lawyer on government expense over Rs.1 million. Beyond this amount payment approval must be obtained from the chairman NAB.

13. Only one premises should be given the status of President House, Prime Minister House, Governor House and the Chief Minister House.

Besides the above austerity measures, the following steps are also suggested to rejig the national economy on a fast track mode.

1. Request to all foreign donors for a 10 years moratorium, on all debt repayments by Pakistan, which is a frontline state of the world’s war on terror (WOT). Here, don’t forget that the world powers have totally written off loans of many countries, for much less cooperation than Pakistan, which is practically fighting their war, for more than a decade and a half.
2. 20% per annum reduction in all non-developmental government expenditures, plus total freeze in all perks paid from the national exchequer, involving foreign currency.
3. Maximum tax rate on each and every type of income in Pakistan should be fixed at 10%. This will not only bring huge revenues to the government, but will also discourage the tax evasion tendencies.
The size of our undocumented economy is almost equal to the yearly budget of Pakistan.
The best way to minimise black money is not the launching of amnesty schemes, because the black money keeps flourishing after taking advantage of such facilities. If we really want to deal with the menace of undocumented economy on a permanent basis, the ideal way is to either eliminate taxes or reduce the rates of taxes to a minimum level i.e., not more than 10%. This low level of tax rate will not only spur an economic boom, but will also automatically encourage people towards paying the taxes; rather than giving bribes to the government officials to save higher payments of taxes.
4. Impart training on war footings, of various modern skills to the country’s huge unskilled manpower, for increasing the industrial and agricultural productivity, competitiveness, value addition & exports.
5. Special support and incentives for developing world class facilities for enhancing income from tourism sector, which should encompass religious, medical, educational, hunting, entertainment and traditional tourism, specially keeping in view how rapidly Dubai has become a world tourist destination, by juxtaposing technology with innovative ideas. In technology and innovation Pakistan will have to be one step ahead of Dubai and Singapore.
6. Set a target for 20% per annum increase in foreign remittances, by offering innovative incentives to expatriate Pakistanis, which should even attract foreigners to park their money in Pakistan.
7. Outsource FBR functions (which will alone increase income by Rs.1000 billion) & IMPOSE FLAT 10% tax on ALL & EVERY TYPE OF INCOME (as already mentioned at 3. above), without any exemption (except for the security forces personnel, whose salaries may be doubled with expected receipt of un-precedented increase in revenues). This will not only reduce income tax burden on salaried class (with max. tax rate of 10%. Here don’t forget consultants are already paying 10% tax), but will also result in so much increase in revenues, to the extent that government will not require any tax fresh imposition, in the budget. Plus, the government will be able to give tax free salaries to all the armed forces, rangers, police and other security agencies personnel, who are shedding their blood, in fighting the menace of terrorism, for our and our children’s safe TOMORROW.
8. Pakistan’s Foreign policy is excellent in theory, perhaps the best in the world. However, this policy should be implemented in its true letter and spirit, with core emphasis on PEACE particularly with its neighbours; and Foreign Policy thrust and motto of all our diplomats should be that any and every action in their embassy, must result in the economic benefit of the country. Foreign missions exceeding their allocated targets of investments and remittances should be lavishly rewarded with monetary benefits.
9. Initiate steps (by imposing economic emergency) to bring each and every economic activity under document. In China even road side vendors issues receipts for sales of minor items.
10. To attract huge world wide foreign exchange deposits from expatriate Pakistanis and foreigners, allow profit rate of 3% PA to be paid on half yearly basis, on Dollar and other specified foreign currency bank accounts in Pakistan. We should not forget that recently Pakistan borrowed at 3% from the IMF and sold Eurobonds at 8.25%.

#PCB…#Pathetic #Cricket #Board?

 

Questions for the members of the BOG of the PCB to be asked during the meeting of Wednesday, 22 November, 2017.

1. Why no separate PSL-1 and PSL-2 Audit was allowed when:
– Scores of time it was announced in Media by the PSL chairman that PSL Audit was being conducted.
– If PSL Audit was not conducted separately from the PCB on the grounds that PSL was not a different company, then why PCB employees were paid huge extra salaries, amounting to crores of Rupees for doing PSL related assignments?
– When PCB gave huge seed money of Rs.50 crores for PSL Project, why PSL was not separately Audited, as a Project?
– If PSL was not a separate project why Mr. Najam Sethi was specifically appointed as its chairman, when the departments of PCB are headed by directors not chairmans?
2. Was the audit of PSL was not allowed because crores repeat crores of Rupees, were paid to the franchises, out of the written terms of the franchise agreements?
3. Was the audit of the PSL not allowed because about Rs. 40 crores was paid to the franchises on account of Pool Money of PSL-1; under a strange terms of the franchise agreement, which stipulated minimum 80% payment, instead of fixing a maximum ceiling/limit of payment?
Everywhere in the world always for payments upper limit is mentioned, but here PCB allowed minimum limit of payment, leaving scope for limitless payments.
4. Was Audit of the PSL not allowed to keep under wraps unjustifiable PSL-1 launching dinner expense of Rs.70,000/- per head?
5. Why constitution of PCB was blatantly violated in removing Mr. Shahryar Khan on 9 August, 2017 whereas, his legal three years tenure was to expire on 17 August, 2017, because he took over on 18 August, 2013 at 4PM?
Questions on MOU.
The Mystery of USD 1 million MOU..!

It was reported in the media that PCB’s Board of Governors (BoG) has approved USD 1 million or Rupees 10 crore to cover the legal expenses involved in filing and contesting the case against the BCCI, for causing huge financial losses to the PCB, by reneging on its commitments made under a MOU, to play six cricket match series in eight years, with Pakistani cricket team.

In this regard, the honourable members of the BoG are requested to kindly call an extraordinary meeting to decide and verify, on the following important points, because about Rs.10 crores of the PCB are at stake:

1. Confirm, by personally verifying and examining the original of the document, claimed by Mr. Najam Sethi as a MOU, between the BCCI and the PCB, was really and legally a MOU or not.

2. Is the document called as MOU was signed by the then heads of the PCB (Mr. Najam Sethi) and the BCCI (Mr. N. Srinivasan)?

3. To confirm whether the purported MOU was written on a legal paper or on the letter head of the BCCI or on a plain paper?

4. Does the document purported as MOU mentions specifically that it was an MOU document?

5. Whether the purported MOU was signed by just a honorary official of the BCCI when the authorised signatory and president of the BCCI was present at the venue?

6. Is this purported MOU just a letter from the BCCI to the PCB?
6 (a). And if it was a letter then is it on the letterhead of the BCCI?
6 (b). And why it was not signed by the BCCI president N. Srinivasan, who was physically present in that ICC meeting?

7. If this document called MOU was counter signed (at that time) by Mr. Najam Sethi as chairman PCB why he allowed a lower rank unauthorised and honorary BCCI person to sign it?
7 (a). And if it was not also signed by Mr. Najam Sethi then can we call such a document an MOU?

8. This purported MOU was signed during an ICC board members meeting. Why did not Mr. Najam Sethi obtain signatures of any ICC board members on this document as witnesses?

9. Why Mr. Najam Sethi accepted this purported conditional MOU from the BCCI, when he himself voted without conditions/reservations, in favour of the Big3 formula?

10. Why Mr. Najam Sethi accepted this purported MOU without the agreement of the BCCI to include the clause of the [ international court of arbitration] as was aggressively taken up by Mr. Zaka Ashraf?

11. The BOG must ask Mr. Najam Sethi as to why he was not taking legal action against the ICC for not paying to the PCB $15 million per year, which Mr. Najam Sethi told to the media and was widely reported in the press that the ICC has made PCB as Big4 and has more than doubled annual payments to PCB to $15 million (after Mr. Najam Sethi voted for the Big3 formula which enhanced astronomically BCCI’s financial share from the income of the ICC), or did Mr. Najam Sethi made a deliberate wrong statement at that time to hoodwink the Pakistani public, from the main issue of his casting an unconditional vote, in favour of making India, the king of the ICC, which started getting lions share of the ICC’s income?
12. Why this so called MOU document was never presented in original, before the members of the BoG of the PCB?

It is earnestly hoped that the timely intervention of BoG members of the PCB may save a huge amount of USD 1 million of the Pakistan Cricket Board.
The issue of participation of Pakistani players in the ICC [unapproved] T10 League.

1. Has the the ICC accorded its approval to the T10 League? If not, then how and why their presence will be there and will have a check on any misdeeds of the players/officials.

2. Why PCB wants to take a chance of sponsorship losses for its own franchises, by holding ICC non approved event, so close to PSL tournament, which is definitely expected to suffer losses due to sponsorship fatigue, which is bound to happen by the diversion of sponsors budgets/funds to T10 League?

3. Why such a tight Indian strangle hold have been allowed over this ICC unapproved league where 67% shares are held by an Indian named Shaji al Mulk?

4. Will BCCI ever allow its 28 players to participate in a League of a Pakistani major (67%) share holder? If not then why PCB has thrown its approval to the feet of an Indian investor?

5. The non participation of almost any reputed Indian player is a big question mark which needs answer in light of the fact that out of the six teams three are owned by the Indians and one by a SriLankan. Only two out of the six teams are owned by Pakistanis.

6. The mother of all questions is that why the PCB chairman took a 180 degrees U turn and allowed 28 players to participate in the T10 League? after announcing that:

a). No Pakistani player to participate in the T10 League.

b). PCB has no connection or link with T10 League.
Proposed Constitutional Amendment

Why to amend the PCB’s constitution just to please the Regional Cricket Association presidents to allow them to extend their tenure from two terms of three years each (total six years)? This will kill the room for the entry of fresh blood and create monopoly of old stuff.

According to sources, PSL franchise owners said that participation in short-format cricket makes the players prone to misdemeanor, so Pakistani players should not be allowed to be a part of the T10 league.

However, Sethi rejected their demand and clarified that PCB and ICC officials will be present in the event which nearly nullifies the chances of any misdeeds.

The Mystery of USD 1 million MOU..!

Posted by Syed Nayyar Uddin on November 12, 2017 in Cricket, My Views, Pakistan, Sports

To:- All the PCB’s members of the Board of Governors.

AoA.

10. Why Mr. Najam Sethi accepted this purported MOU without the offer/security of any bank guarantee from the BCCI, which was earlier being very strongly demanded by Mr. Zaka Ashraf?

11. The BOG must ask Mr. Najam Sethi as to why he was not taking legal action against the ICC for not paying to the PCB $15 million per year, which Mr. Najam Sethi told to the media and was widely reported in the press that the ICC has made PCB as Big4 and has more than doubled annual payments to PCB to $15 million (after Mr. Najam Sethi voted for the Big3 formula which enhanced astronomically BCCI’s financial share from the income of the ICC), or did Mr. Najam Sethi made a deliberate wrong statement at that time to hoodwink the Pakistani public, from the main issue of his casting an unconditional vote, in favour of making India, the king of the ICC, which started getting lions share of the ICC’s income?

PMLN… it is the question of your failed leadership..!

PMLN must repay personally the current national total loan burden of USD 250 billion.
Dear Messrs Nawaz Sharif, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Muhammad Ishaq Dar, Ahsan Iqbal, all cabinet members and entire PMLN party leadership.

Sir,

Hope none of you will be aware that as of now, the latest figure of the total debt of Pakistan (internal+external) stands at Rs.25 trillion or $250 billion, which is almost equal to the total GDP of Pakistan.

Here, I would like to remind you the following:

1. The main election slogan of PMLn in 2013 general elections was:

Ae Tair-e-Lahooti! Uss Rizq Se Mout Achi
Jis Rizq Se Ati Ho Parwaz Mein Kotahi

2. PMLN’s E13 manifesto specifically made the following two commitments:

a). Beggars bowl will be broken.

b). Pakistan’s wealth stashed in foreign countries will be brought back in the country.

In view of the 100% failure of your government on the above commitments, resulting in Pakistan’s virtual economic subjugation before its creditors, the only honourable way left for your party and its top leadership is to quit the government immediately; as an atonement for deliberately pushing Pakistan towards the darkness of the economic abyss, before the mass awakening, for demanding registration of cases, against the entire cabinet and party leadership, for the recovery of total odious loans, obtained in your tenure of the government, personally from all cabinet and party members.

Best Regards,

Syed Nayyar Uddin Ahmad

Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory..!

Posted by Syed Nayyar Uddin on October 2, 2017 in Cricket, My Views, Pakistan, Sports

The below note  was written on the 3rd day of the first Abu Dhabi Test match.
However, the result of the first Test match reflects that the Sri Lankan team didn’t win, but Pakistani team lost.
In fact, scoring 114 runs in the second innings of a Test match, is not acceptable score even for a 20 overs match.
The chairman PCB must intervene personally; and order immediate inclusion of Fakhar Zaman in the Test team of 2nd Test, as an opener.
Moreover, the chairman PCB must call explanations from the whole selection committee, captain Sarfraz Ahmad and Coach Micky Arthur, for not including in the squad Fawad Alam, Junaid Khan and a right arm off spinner, for the left handed Sri Lankan batsmen.
Basically, we lost the match, because all our batsmen played very defensively and selfishly, to secure their own positions and just scored 209 runs in 90 overs of the first innings.
Any team with selfish players is the best recipe for defeat against, even weak teams.

*Write Up*:

Now it is high time that selectors, coach and captain of men’s team must also be made answerable for their not ordinary, but glaringly defensive tactics; and selection blunders in the ongoing Test match vs the SL team.
Why they selected 7 batsmen and only four bowlers, which allowed SL to score 419 runs and exhausted our bowlers as well?
What was the utility of being so defensive against such a weak team?
It is famously said in cricket that if 5 regular batsmen can’t score then 6 or 7 batsmen will also not score.
Why 3 regular openers were played which also resulted in disturbing the whole batting order.
Why Fawad Alam was dropped with 59+ runs average in last 3 years vs zero average of Haris Suhail in last 3 years?
Why no off spinner was played for so many left handed SL batsmen?
If final eleven is always wrongly selected by the coach and captain, then why not revert to the old practice of making the touring manager, as the chief member of the tour selection committee?
If always poor selection by the national selection committee, then why pay so much heavily to them, when in the past selectors did this job free of cost, as a national honour?
The whole set up of men’s team also needs an urgent shake up, as our team is performing less than ordinary against the weakest time in Asia.

Pakistan – A recipe for way forward..!

Posted by Syed Nayyar Uddin on September 27, 2017 in Action Plan to Revive Pak Economy, My Views, Pakistan

It is not a rocket science to understand that for any military to perform its national duties, sound economic conditions are as important, as ammoniation for its guns.

It is also a well known documented fact that Pakistan’s repayments of extremely expensive loans, coupled with huge trade gap, yawning current account deficit, declining remittances, huge losses of the state owned enterprises like PIA, Steel Mills and Railways etc., massive corruption which has grown to such an extent that the size of Pakistan’s black economy has overtaken the size of the annual budget of the country, huge level of money laundering, surpassing the figures of $10 billion annually and depreciating Rupee value has virtually strangulated and stunted the growth and development of the country.

As such, business as usual is a sure recipe for disaster and imminent radical change, the need of the hour for Pakistan.

Somehow, no political party worth its name in Pakistan, has proved that it can solve the issues afflicting the masses of the country. It looks all of them have neither the capacity, nor the will to deliver in the true sense. May be the system in our society, was never designed to serve the teeming millions.

Under the circumstances, there are clear signs written on the wall that very soon, Pakistan may face chaotic law and order situation, resembling the turmoil of the French Revolution.

In view of the foregoing, where the statehood of Pakistan seems to be facing imminent existential crisis, it is high time that immediate corrective surgical actions, like bringing in a very lean but professional consensus government of young, qualified, renowned, reputed and honest people of less than 45 years age, be installed in the center and the provinces, with the below mentioned specific tasks, to be completed, in six months:

– Revival of economy.

– Drafting a new social contract, with special focus on the have nots, which should also encompass devising new policies for the next 100 years, on every sector like education, health, industry (civil & military), mining including mining of precious metals, shipping, air/road/river transportations, space/science and technology, IT, agriculture, justice, tourism, development of new mega cities, energy, housing, sports, service sectors, films/arts etc etc.

– Devising a workable governance plan and innovative presidential political system (which should be free from blackmailing of the elected representatives) to convert every division of the country, into a province, with 100% devolution of power and provisions of funds, to the last tier of the local bodies system.

– Develop plans to further increase the scope of CPEC projects.

– Develop mechanism to minimise corruption and money laundering.

– Prepare robust strategy to immediately bring back illegal wealth, stashed abroad by the Pakistani nationals, which is estimated to be around worth $1 trillion in cash, real state and other forms.

– Prepare plan to bring each and every economic activity, under documentation.

– Devise plans to increase productivity and competitiveness of the local industry.

– Prepare Plans for minimising taxes and duties etc.

I have no qualms in admitting that the current elder generation, has utterly failed to save Pakistan, from going bankrupt, in the every sphere of life; therefore, we must hand over the mantle to the younger generation, to come forward and try to re-build our nation, to the highest stage of the glory.

Pakistan of Overseas Pakistanis..!

Posted by Syed Nayyar Uddin on September 25, 2017 in Case for Pakistan's Loan write off, My Views, Pak Loan Write-off, Pakistan

The government and politicians of Pakistan must realise that overseas Pakistanis are not just cash cows, sending billions of dollars; for their spendings as if, it was their fathers money.

Overseas Pakistanis are a very precious asset, institute and life line for Pakistan, who deserve special treatment by the nation, concerned embassies and everyone in the country.
First of all, they deserve right of vote. Secondly, they should be given special 3% PA profit on their foreign currency accounts in Pakistan, special protocol at the airports and separate counters at police stations and such like many other facilities. They should be given special discounts at all malls and by the travel agents; with the purpose to give them a sense of security, pride and honour.
It is further suggested that during five years term of a government, five persons nominated by the OP’s must be given a one year term to each person, as a deputy PM of Pakistan, which will not only resolve lot of issues of OP’s, but will bring huge businesses, investments and improvements in balance of trade for Pakistan.
In short OP’s should be considered prime movers of a peaceful, prosperous and strong Pakistan.

This is not cricket..!

Posted by Syed Nayyar Uddin on September 23, 2017 in Cricket, Daily Quote, My Views, Pakistan, Sports

This is not cricket…Mian Muhammmad Nawaz Sharif.

Now, the PCB headed by the genius media man Mr. Najam Sethi; and its most highly paid selection committee, has devised an ingenious method to perpetuate its favouritism and nepotism policy, to include Shan Masood (son of Mr. Mansoor M. Khan member BoG of PCB & chairman audit committee of the PCB), at every cost, in the squad for Test matches vs the Sri Lankan team.

The squad usually consists of 15 members, but this time it consists of 16 members, notwithstanding the fact that Dubai is just few hours flight from Pakistan and for such a weak opponent, sending 16 members squad was a sheer waste of PCB’s valuable resources.

The nation has a right to ask the PCB chairman and its team of selectors, on what basis they dropped Sami Aslam and included Shan Masood from the West Indian tour, when during the team’s tour of England the batting average of Sami Aslam was 55 runs agains 12 runs batting average of Shan Masood.

In all fairness, this selection committee is not a fair minded committee believing in intellectual honesty; and may be thinking that people don’t know that how undeserving players are made to look like super stars, by repeatedly, repeat repeatedly, giving them opportunities to play against weak teams, like West Indies and Sri Lanka.

Moreover, inclusion of Sami Aslam in the squad for Test matches vs the Sri Lankan team, after dropping him from the squad of the Caribbean tour (please note in between Sami Aslam and Pakistani team didn’t play any Test match) proves that the selectors in the first instance, wrongly favoured Shan Masood by selecting him for the Caribbean tour and Sami Aslam was made to suffer, because he has no relative serving, in the BoG of the PCB.

Now, coming to Mr. Najam Sethi’s stance that since, he knows nothing about cricket, he wants to tell the selection committee to not even put the papers to him for his final approval of the team.

This stance doesn’t absolve Mr. Najam Sethi of his constitutional responsibilities, where the chairman PCB must approve the team selected by committee of selectors.

Moreover, this also proves that Mr. Najam Sethi should be doing anything but, heading the PCB.

Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, salute to you for handing over the PCB to Mr. Najam Sethi, blatantly violating the cardinal rule of putting the right man, at the right job.

Mr. Ex. Prime Minister of Pakistan for three times, if you can’t do the right appointment in an extremely important national organisation (where the chairman himself admitted in a TV interview that he knew nothing about cricket), how you are again asking to be made the PM of the country, for the fourth time?

Pakistan team: Sarfraz Ahmed (c), Azhar Ali, Shan Masood, Sami Aslam, Babar Azam, Asad Shafiq, Haris Sohail, Usman Salahuddin, Yasir Shah, Mohammad Asghar, Bilal Asif, Mir Hamza, Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Abbas, Wahab Riaz
