Lahore, Jan 14: Pakistan government is seriously thinking of doing away with the National Security Advisor post in the country. This is apparently control the damage after sacking of the National Security Advisor, Mehmood Ali Durrani. Durrani was sacked by the Prime Minister, Yusuf Raza Gilani last week, after he admitted that Azmal Amir Kasav, the lone surviving terrorist of the Mumbai attacks, belonged to Pakistan.
"The government is considering abolishing the post of adviser to the Prime Minister on national security after the sacking of Mehmood Ali Durrani," the Daily Times quoted a private television channel, as saying. Although several names are circulating as potential contenders for the office, the government may just do away with the post altogether," the channel said.
According to a Pak official, the govt wants to avoid further contradictions in the 'official statements' issued by the top of its functionaries. "The government does not want too many channels reporting on issues of a sensitive nature simultaneously," the official said.
