    The announcement by the prime minister of constituting an independent commission, headed by Justice (r) Rana Bhagwandas, is an excellent and much needed step by the political class of the country to deal with the human tragedy of these floods. It is the acumen of the government to constitute an independent commission, as government was being blamed for trust deficit and other propaganda. he chances of so called commission are getting thinner with every passing minute and rightly so as constituting the said commission tantamount to distrust on the current regime. It is simply a shut up call for those who were criticizing the government for either lack of interest or accusing it by using the word trust deficit. No doubt it is a great step by the government that the country needs at the moment to win back the lost credibility both at the national and international level with regards to fund raising for amelioration of the plight of the unfortunate caught in the web of hunger, disease and loss of home and hearth. At this point our media must also show some wisdom in wake of critical situation and avoid such statements that are tarnishing the image of Pakistan at national and international level.
