Voice of the People Low voltage in Turbat
Pakistani polio workers honoured
ATIQ ALI Turbat, being the second largest city of Balochistan province lacks several facilities, among them one major problem is the low voltage, even a refrigerator cannot work properly what to taken of air-conditions low voltage leads to disfunding of 2-26, which the poor people of the area out . this low voltage, several electrical and electronics devices were make out of order. And a poor person of Turbat can not afford plethora of expenses of these electrical and electronics devices not working an account of low voltage.
Moreover, the most shocking thing regarding this is that there is an area in Turbat namely “Khair Abad” wherein the residents have connected double current, which should have to be about 440 volt, but still the voltage is low, the voltage in double current must be 440 volt, but it is 180 volt in place of 440 volt in Khair Abad, and a single current might be 70 to 80 volt rather than 220 volt.
When the workers were asked for this problem, they replied that actually 11000 volt completely is not being received by this area, it is the reason that the issue of energy crisis exist in Turbat. The government is requested to take some steps which are worth while to mnimise the suffering of the conditions have been made difficult for children to survive and enjoy their life.

SANAULLAH SAMAD Last
week four Pakistani polio workers were awarded Presti gious Louis Pasteur medals by the Pasteur Institute of France in recognition of their efforts for eradication of polio in Pakistan. The ceremony was held on the occasion of Polio Day, and the World Health Organisation and French government awarded four Pakistani polio workers. The WHO estimated that in last two years Pakistan has brought a great improvement for the eradication of polio virus. I also appreciate the polio workers whose lives were at risk while launching polio campaigns to vaccinate the small children. The polio workers have successfully launched campaigns in several high-risk areas to protect children from this crippling disease. In the 2014, more than 250 cases were reported, but this year around 14 cases have been reported which is obviously a great improvement. The polio workers should continue their good work to make Pakistan a polio free country. —Turbat, Balochistan of the regional countries. Both the ruling brothers know how to pocket the money from commissions taken by their front men. How about the ever escalating poverty, hunger and prices of the commodities? Our agricultural & industrial growth has dwindled causing serious decline in export and failure to invest in the human capital have resulted in lower productivity and decrease in employment opportunities.
We cannot ignore such security lapses and efforts to save the culprits. We need to protest against such secret leaks as a proud nation. This leak has been fed for some ulterior motive. We need to thoroughly investigate this matter. The other day he held a public meeting in Kohat. No harassment took place. KP government gave a free hand to PML(N) for this political activity. Did the federal government reciprocate in the same fashion? No not at all. Let us promote democratic values and norms in our country. —Karachi ****** HINA DEEDAR The sudden arrest of PTI members, and the forceful act by police, to stop the arrangements of the protest that is going to be held on November 2, is a disappointing action by the government. PTI’s chairman Imran Khan had announced and ensured that it’s going to be peaceful protest with no lock downs; schools will remain open; business and shops will also be remain opened. Instead of these sureties, the government adopted a harsh and cruel attitude towards the protestors. These steps taken by the government clearly depicts that there is no democracy in our country.
Government through police put barriers on the pavements to refrain the crowd to be part of the protest. Responsibility lies with government to obey law and decision of the courts under all circumstances. Unfortunately, our government violates the laws and take actions against the decision of the court. It seems as if the government was trying to suppress the opposition by using their so-called police power. As usual once again, it is proved that law and constitution are just for poor people not for the people who have power and seat. —Karachi ******* SHADAB SHAREEF As the PTI is planning to stage a protest against the PML-N government on Nov 2, the democratic government PML-N is using Advertisements to highlight what they have done in the past few years for the development of Pakistan and how PTI is putting everything at stake by staging a protest. This action would be justified if elections were being held. At that time; it would be logical to use advertisement to showcase the people what you have done for them and why they should choose you again.
However running advertisements by government undoubtedly is not a public service message in this crucial stage, which raised many questions. First of all; If they hold credibility in what they have done for the development of Pakistan in their governance period why they need such advertisements; are you trying to create or manipulate general public opinion or perception regarding your government. Last but not the least; why public money is being used to run this huge marketing strategy? room hall of Writers Guest House at the Pakistan Academy of Letters.
