Roads in Kohat need repair

Kohat 6-4-2014 

Javanda road Kohat has become full of broken patches amid heavy rainfall, road near old Sadar police station was also damaged amid heavy rainfall previously; Kohat Bannu road till Jerma Bridge also contains broken patches on it in abundance. Most affected community is public transport vehicle drivers whom are round the clock moving on these roads while their vehicles get damaged, a public transport driver laments that cost of repair increases from the income which he gets as public transport driver, some of the drivers are working for their public transport vehicle owners on daily wages, their plight becomes horrible when the vehicle gets damaged and sometimes they have to pay for repair for their daily wages.
Dr. Khalid resident of Sheffield County in London and resident of Kohat once moving on the road had told this scribe that to save the kidneys roads shall be carpeted and jerk free. He says that slight jerks on road are more damaging for kidneys and shall not be there. Damaged roads are hazardous not only for vehicle owners but for the passengers too whom are mostly from general public.
Road damage amid heavy rainfall reflect poor construction of the road, an engineer says due to heavy commission paid by contractors as bribe little money remains for road construction, some of the roads were only constructed on papers, others are of the view that lack of expertise in road construction can also be the reason behind poor construction of roads, some of the newly constructed roads evaporate amid heavy rainfall like make up vanishes away from face when water fells on it. Road constructed by Turkish firms and even roads constructed inside Punjab by local contractors are better than roads in KPK, Murree Islamabad road is the best example of road engineering in Pakistan.
Experts are of the view that factors leading to poor road construction in KP shall be removed to have better roads in this province.

Drought in Thar causes deaths of children(updates)

What is happening in Thar area of Sindh Pakistan is outcome of natural disaster known as drought, shortage of rainfall for long period of time has caused death and devastation there, being a realistic person I do not expect from newly independent Pakistan having 66 years of age and home of thousands of tribes and clans with extremely low literacy ratio, that its people will be able to develop a first rate social security system like Great Britain, USA or Saudi Arabia where each unemployed person gets handsome unemployment allowance from government, in Saudi Arab each person has been paid handsome allowance soon after his birth.

Inter tribal and inter regional jealousies and biases coupled with large scale ignorance prevents our newly born state from being a welfare state, more the 121 children in Thar are now dead their deaths were caused by drought largely responsible for creating conducive conditions for their deaths, aid agencies working there are trying hard to save the drought hit people of Thar, media men there are reporting corrupt practices in distribution of aid there and some people are demanding distribution of aid through Pakistan Armed Forces so it can reach to the drought hit people of Thar.
Large scale displacements are also reported in media from Thar which has also become concern of UNHCR too, probably they will also start their operations there soon.  The magnitude of disaster is quite big and requires effective response from international community too.

Number of dead children hit by drought in Thar area of Sindh Pakistan has been increased to 142 now, media reports reflect that aid goods have been reached to Mithi capital city of Thar but distribution is a problem, due to remoteness of Thar's villages in desert people are still stuck in difficult situation there.

With the demise of two more children in hospital at Mithi Thar, number of dead children has been raised to 144, according to a private TV channel broadcast Pakistan Army has reached there to help drought hit people of Tharparker Sindh, people in remote villages of drought hit Thar are still in difficult situation there.

Bloodshed amid negotiation process

Amid ongoing negotiations between  government  formed committee and TTP militants, Pakistan has been witnessing bloody scenes from Khyber to Karachi,  Private TV channels are voicing concern over presence of 15000 militants in Karachi, now in terms of numerical presence of militants no difference has been left between capital city of Sindh and North Waziristan tribal area.
If one goes through the newspaper statements uttered by both government and TTP representatives it becomes vivid that militant groups have no central authority and are unable to take joint decisions regarding ceasefire with government which has caused good deal of embarrassment among pro talk’s government authorities.
Mehmand Agency TTP faction responsible for deaths of 23 FC men this week has ultimately caused more deployment of troops in North Waziristan, where at least four thousand families were displaced during targeted military operation recently, with the initiation of negotiation process between government and militant’s two thousand families were gone back to their respective region.
With the blockade of NATO containers movement towards Afghanistan in Khyber Pukhtoon Khwa province of Pakistan PTI provincial government has created a situation in which PML(N)  government at center looses US support if agrees regarding blockade with provincial government and if disagrees with KP PTI government then looses popular support, ultimate outcome of this episode is increased militancy in Pakistan because PTI’s NATO containers blockade move has created  good deal  of confidence in militants and militant supporters whom are fighting to make ultimate exit of US and its allied forces from Afghanistan. USA has also reacted and many developmental and other projects are witnessing downsizing of their employees because of the lack of funds.
TTP demand is imposition of Sharia law interestingly the provision already exists in Pakistan’s constitution and here no laws can be made which are unIslamic in nature, the dangerous and anti civil society demand posed by TTP leadership is elimination of democratic setup, the said demand will definitely lead towards full fledge Army operation against militants. Though due to reluctance of central government in this respect KP province has been almost fallen to the TTP militants where increased militants activity is quite vivid, while trying to stop the militants from extorting money from shopkeepers yesterday a Pakistan Army Major Jehanzeb was gunned down by militants in FR region near Peshawar capital of KP.
