"The estimated scale of the problem in the modern Britain is shocking and these new figures starkly reinforce the case for urgent action." The report published as part of the British government's trategy to tackle with the trafficking and modern slavery.

Imran Khan has not revealed his 'Plan C' yet and Sharif Brothers have paid all the taxes due to Ittefaq Foundry, announced sizeable drop in petroleum prices, inaugurated Hazara Motoway in KPK, also decreased electricity prices by Rs 0.46 per unit. Why? Those who say say Imran Khan's sit-ins and rallies have no impacts could see these new development in the country. Priorly, Nawaz Sharif and his parliamentarians had no time to come to assembly and attend the sessions. With the beginning of Imran's protest the parliament started its continious session and moved resolutions to protect what they say "democray" though it is not visible any where neither within the political parties nor in the assembly and in the country. However, law and order situation is worsening in the country. Nawaz Sharif 'beloved' MNA and the chief of JUI Maulana Fazal Rahman has also stood against him and called for country-wide strike making the murder of late Dr Khalid Mahmood an excuse for the protest. It may be the common plan of PM and Maulana to make trouble for PTI workers to enter Islamabad, as roads have been blocked already by JUI workers. Maulana was seeking a chance like this and he has been provided the chance to make Imran Khan's rally a failure. Revealing his plans Imran Khan said plan 'A' was the sit-ins outside the parliament, plan 'B' was the country-wide rallies that he had addressed and on Sunday he would reveal plan 'C'. Khan said if plan C did not work he will bring plan 'D'. He also blamed the government to spend billions of rupees on advertisement, out of nation's exchequer.

It is no doubt an extremely brutal action of terrorists in KPK and Balochistan that they kill innocent polio workers who give vaccines to small children in different remote areas of the province. Therefore, the polio cases in these areas are increasing, and due polio cases Pakistani may be banned to enter other countries without having polio vaccine. The health department in the country have lady health workers for the job, but due to killing of the polio workers, lady health visitors have refused to adminiter the polio vaccines. While, they are permanent employees of the health department and this job is mandatory for them. while, KPK government, instead of protecting health visitors have assigned the polio vaccine work to female school teachers, while they do not have this job in their mandate. They have been recruited for teaching not for doing the jobs of health visitors. If lady health visitors love their lives, then why school teachers in KPK, sepcially that of Kohat district have been deputed for polio duty and to sacrifice lives. The election duty though assigned to female teachers come once in four years or some times in by elections, but anti-polio compaign is carried out every month. THe female teachers who have been performing duties in remotest areas away from cities are still go door to door for administering the polio vaccines. Government of KPK must reconsider tits this injustified step and recruit new staff for only polio duty, if they can not pressurise health visitors.

Every one is aware that Pakistani State is so weak that it can not maintain its write having no rule of law in the country. But it highly heart breaking when this condition impacts the most vulnerable members of the society-the children. Particularly when the children themselves are from poor background and come from conflict ridden areas of the country. Twenty six little girls were found in a home in Karachi held as bargaining chips in a debt recovery exercise. The girls were brought to a house whose owner had taken a loan from the management of a Madrassah (Religious school), where girls were enrolled as students. According to reports Madrasah management sought to impose the cost of upkeep of the girls on the owner of the house, as well as to use the girls as a way to maintain a presence in the house in case it needed to be taken against the loan in the event of default. It shows the weakness and failure of the state to provide proper education to the children, the future of the nation, secondly the mushrooming growth of unregistered madrassas, and the lack of formal credit system to reach the poor segment of the society. The management of the Madrassah should also be asked how was it working as a 'Bank' to extend loans. ? How did it get that much money to give loans?

Government is again very much scared of Imran Khan address of Nov 30. The government is well aware of its inillegibilty, weaknesses and drawbacks that it wants to make a strong circle of police and rangers around it to save its chair. Government's failure to curtail load shedding of power, sky rocketing prices of utilities and to maintain law and order situation in the country. Government has started arresting PTI's local leadership, blocking the roads with containers, Why? Is there any foreign army going to attack their palaces? Whom will benefit from the blockage of the roads? Definetly, the people will have more sympathies with PTI not with the government. Why government concentrates on providing basic necessities of life to the people. Why poor children are dying in That? Why newborn 30 babies have died in District Headquarter Hospital Sargodha? If Imran Khan says this government has no further right to rule is not true. The government who can not provide health and education facilities to people, has it right to rule the poor Pakistani nation? Prime Minster announces to construct motorways every town he addresses, is it for the sale of their facrories' material or for the benefit of poor nation that has no basic amenities of life. Does motorways help in treating the sick people or educate them? it is for the benefit of the wealthy people who travel on theses roads in their luxury cars. poor people want cheapest utilities, food items, justice and health facilities . What this government has given to Pakistanis except more miserable lives than PPP's era. Government must facilitate PTI for holding processions or what ever it is to avoid any clash and blame for blocking their way. Government should clear roads to minimize the trouble of movement. Specially for those who enter Rawalpindi/Islamabad from other cities. There are women, children and patients coming to the capital

While Imran khan has already announced to reveal the proofs of pool rigging on Nov 30, the Swiss court decision about the ownership of valuable jewellery in favour og Pakistan government has put Nawaz Sharif in very awkward position. If he pursues the case, he would be losing favour of Zardari, if he does not then Imran Khan has cards in his favour and he has a very good cgance to exploit the issue. As he has been saying in his every address that incumbent government is not going to recover corruption money from Zardari family. Although the ability to recover national assets stashed away in foreign banks should come as a good news for the people of Pakistan and the chairman PTI, the timing of the recent judgement in favour of government of Pakistan may not be a good news for Muslim League (N). A Swiss federal tribunal has ruled that a valuable jewellery set that was seized by authorities in connection with investigation into allegations of graft belonged to former president Zardari or the legal heirs of late BeNazir Bhutto. The set which includes a necklace, a bracelet, a pair of earrings and a ring, is said to be valued at more than $180,000. In the judgement issued on Oct 29, the tribunal rejected the ownership claims filed by Comer Finance for the jewellery. The company was allegedly formed by Mr Jens Schlegelmilch and linked to Mr Zardari and was at the center of SGS-Cotechna investigation. The judgement handed down states that Mr Schelegelmilch "appeared to have acted as attorney to BB-AAZ (Asif Ali Zardari and Benazir Bhutto) couple. If government again refuses to repatriate the assets, as was done in 2008 by the promulgation of National Reconciliation Ordinance (NR, then PTI and PAT will leave no stone unturned to exploit the issue. They will be right to do so. Government musy think in favour of national interests not for remaining in power with the committed favour of PPP. THIS IS A TEST CASE FOR NAWAZ SHARIF.
