    All the god gifted natural resources in Pakistan must be used for the uplift and benefits of the poverty stricken and down trodden section of society .Pakistan has given a lot to landed peasantry, feudal lords, and capitalists, traders, business men all civil and military servants, legal community and the families living and working iabroad.But unfortunately, there remain 44.8 percent of our population living below the poverty line are in dire need of letting them fully awailed of the opportunities to progress. We rightly expect PM IK to form a well thought out mechanism to help the downtrodden section of our society.

    Alhamdulillah, It’s a good sign, people want to see the results not talk. There was news for oil found in the sea of Karachi but no oil is found or produced yet.
    Allah is very just & the ALL-MIGHTY blessed every nation with expensive resources JUSTLY. It is the human who treats his fellows unjustly and brutely. Whatever is happening in the world, it is because of JEALOUSY & ENIMOSITY.
