HEC: Decision to Devolve Reversed?

As per the most recent reports from Pakistan, it seems that the Implementation Commission has revoked the decision to devolve the Higher Education of Pakistan. I am quite hopeful and happy but I would probably not count my chickens until an unequivicoal announcement is made by the government. Here is a report from a Pakistani Urdu newspaper:

Islamabad (Radio News+ Waqt News+ online)
