Many problems haunting Chinese power plants are due to policy decisions. Chinese power plants cannot import coal due to low forex with Pakistani banks. But the power plants cannot compare the prices due to exchange rate fluctuation and rupee devaluation. The worst affected coal-fired power plants are located at Hub in Balochistan, Sahiwal in Punjab and Port Qasim in Karachi.

Why couldn’t there be a Paris conspiracy, Berlin or Moscow conspiracy or ooh Denver airport conspiracy? Mr Khan has been flooding the town square with as many conspiracy theories as you can count since his final days in power. It was in Umberto Eco’s Foucault’s Pendulum that I first came across an operationalised example of how conspiracy theories work. Together these authors recommend the following remedies for conspiracy theories and people affected by them: (1) Promote critical thinking. As someone who succumbed to conspiracy theories in his youth and had to struggle to find his way back I can testify that they work.

Stepping up attacks on the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) just weeks before the Punjab Assembly elections, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz demanded banning the Imran Khan-led party, equating it with a terrorist organisation. “Imran Khan launched a similar attack on the country’s economy in 2018 when he laid ‘landmines’,” she said about the economic policy of the then PTI government. “Imran Khan is responsible for the economic down turn in the country,” she added. “Imran Khan is giving interviews to the foreign media and spreading lies about the government. She alleged that “even terrorists were kept at Zaman Park” to attack the state.

Pakistan’s agriculture sector has the potential to overcome the current account deficit and balance-of-payment crisis within six years, according to State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) Former Governor Salim Raza. Speaking at ‘Agri Connections 2023’, organised by the Pakistan Agricultural Coalition (PAC) on Thursday, Raza noted that the agriculture sector must sustainably grow at 6% to achieve the necessary economic growth and job creation. “This year (FY23), we are going to import around 10 million bales of cotton (higher than last year) ... so, the deficit may be around $6-6.5 billion,” explained Raza. PAC Chief Executive Arif Nadeem highlighted the company’s efforts to offer tested cotton seeds that could augment cotton production to a surplus from the current deficit. The seeds could increase cotton production to three times at 21 million bales compared to 7-8 million bales annually at present, whereas Pakistan’s annual needs stand at 15-16 million bales.

In private conversations, some Pakistani authorities had said that there was a longstanding demand by a Western country to abandon the long-range nuclear missile programme. Shaheen-III is Pakistan’s long-range nuclear missile having the capability to take nuclear warheads to 2,750 kilometer distance, covering the whole of India and parts of the Middle East. His categorical statement may end the debate whether Pakistan will eventually compromise on its nuclear arsenals in return for the IMF programme. “Pakistan's nuclear and missile programme is a national asset, which is jealously guarded by the State,” said the PM’s Office. The nuclear and missile programme continues to fully serve the purpose for which this capability was developed, said the PM’s Office.

Why is the Republican Party suddenly weakening child labor restrictions? And the burgeoning women’s movement became increasingly active on the issue, pushing particularly for compulsory education laws that would effectively ban child labor by mandating school attendance. As it turned out, the push to end child labor by mandating education was highly effective. Twenty years later, the Fair Labor Standards Act established federal child labor provisions that are still in place (and which states like Arkansas may soon sue to overturn). Industry groups like the National Association of Manufactures objected—not just because it would mean the loss of a compliant workforce, but also because they rejected the vision of equality that outlawing child labor was meant to advance.

The imaging on New York Mets closer Edwin Diaz’s knee unfortunately showed a tear of the patellar tendon, and he may very well now miss the entire season and the postseason. It’s a brutal bit of news following what was, I’m sure, a very exciting win in the World Baseball Classic for Team Puerto Rico, closed out by Diaz. New York Mets closer Edwin Díaz tore the patellar tendon in his right knee during the celebration after Puerto Rico’s WBC victory against the Dominican Republic. I think this injury sucks so much for Diaz, so much for his teammates in New York and on Team Puerto Rico, and for the fans of both teams. I just don’t think this injury should change the value of the international event.

Share:A leader is one who knows and shows the way to people and the community whether politically, religiously, or socially. Talking about the followers, they respect and act in accordance with the directions given by their concerned leader. Mostly supporters of political as well as religious leaders often follow them blindly without having the discernment of right and wrong. What the forming fathers of this homeland taught us is to respect all the leaders of freedom irrespective of the fact that many Hindu leaders were against separation, but still for freedom from the British they were on the same page. Never mind how political parties show their ethics as standard, but the respect for an opposite politician is never added to their moral values.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan made an impassioned plea to his supporters on Tuesday, urging them to stand up for their rights and “continue the struggle” even if he is arrested or assassinated. Party workers reportedly hurled stones at police personnel as they baton-charged crowds of supporters gathered outside Zaman Park in anticipation of his arrest. Addressing his supporters in the video, Imran said that the authorities believe his arrest would lead to the nation's indifference. They believe that if Imran Khan is put in jail, the nation will fall asleep. I have been fighting this battle all my life, and I will continue to do so,” he said.
