THE prime minister deserves kudos for not announcing the forensic report on the sugar and wheat scandal on April 25. Apparently it has been postponed for a fortnight.

I would like to suggest that the forensic report should not be made public even after a fortnight. The report should be sent for further verification to more forensic experts to obtain their feedback.

In this manner those implicated in the scandal would be assured that the promises of tabdeeli, were mere election rhetoric.
