On Wednesday, ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) announced that Indian leader Navjot Singh Sidhu would attend the Kartarpur Corridor's inaugural ceremony on November 9.

A report released by party went on to say Senator Faisal Javed Khan had a telephone conversation with Sidhu about Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's leadership and on November 9 invited him to the country.

"Pakistan has managed to send an invitation to the ceremony of the Kartarpur corridor to Navjot Singh Sidhu. Senator Faisal Javed Khan had a telephone conversation on PM Imran Khan with Navjot Singh Sidhu and invited him to Pakistan on November 9," read the statement.

Sidhu attended the Kartarpur Corridor's groundbreaking ceremony previously this year. Nevertheless, he is not part of the delegation of the Congress, which also will visit the gurdwara on November 9.

The committee involves former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Captain Amarinder Singh, Jyoraditya Scindia, RPN Singh, Asha Kumari, Randeep Singh Surjewala, Deepender Singh Hooda, chief spokesperson for the party, and Jitin Prasad.

India and Pakistan signed an agreement last week on how to run the Kartarpur Sahib corridor, paving the way for its inauguration next month before Guru Nanak Dev's 550th birthday. The hallway attaches the shrine of Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur in India with the gurdwara of Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur.

Four officers affiliated with the National Counter Terrorism Authority have been inducted into the unit, according to a notification released on Monday.

Recently, Nacta Director-General Munir Masood, Director Dur-e-Maqnoon, Deputy Director Habibur Rehman and Assistant Director Mufti Mohammad Yaqoob became members of the committee, while it is headed by an additional ministry secretary.

 The Federal Revenue Board (FBR) also set up a similar FATF cell earlier in July to ensure that anti-terrorism financing measures were implemented through currency smuggling.

The FBR cell seeks the required information for FATF-related work. This acts as a focal point for all FATF customs enforcement activities.

Earlier this month, the FATF, a global watchdog on money laundering and terrorist financing, provided Pakistan with a four-month lifeline, urging Islamabad to meet its commitments by February 2020.

 On Friday, a Senate committee expressed its reservations about the fate of some 220 Pakistan Medical and Dental Council staff who had been disbanded by the federal government by an ordinance earlier this week.

The issue came up at the meeting of the Senate Functional Committee on Human Rights that was chaired by Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar at the Parliament House on Friday with the Pakistan People's Party (PPP).

The federal health secretary briefed the Pakistan Medical Commission Ordinance 2019 committee during the meeting. He guaranteed the committee that 98 basic pay scale workers (BPS) grade 1-4 will be rehired for the newly formed Pakistan Medical Commission— which replaces PMDC — out of the 212 employees of the now defunct Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC).

He concluded by saying that the commission would decide the fate of the remaining officials after hearing certain employees.
