Karachi: Sept 08, 2016: Pakistan Zindabad Rally fires an ammunition against rampant corruption prevalent in Pakistan on Tuesday, Sept 06, this year. The rally was organized in Nishtar Park opposite Mazar-e-Quaid in Karachi and was supported by the major participation of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and was headed by the chairman of the Party, Imran Khan.

According to channel24.pk reports, the entire motive behind it was to strengthen the fight and support of Pakistanis against all the corruption in the areas of politics, industries, and various other sectors. The twist in the entire story is that the rally primarily aims at raging against the lately defamed Sharif family. Earlier in July , a report of Panama Papers shook the entire nation when the leaks involved the name of their Prime Minister, Mr. Nawaaz Sharif, his brother and other family members. From that time, the Sharif family is facing lots of troubles and outrage from the people of Pakistan.

Two months back, in July, a report of Panama Papers shook the entire nation when the leaks involved the name of their Prime Minister, Mr. Nawaaz Sharif, his brother and other family members. Since that time, the Sharif family is facing lots of troubles and outrage from the people of Pakistan.

Pakistan as a whole is seeing a lot of malpractices on the part of their government and are in a state of complete aggression in order to work for their own welfare, reported a news portal.

The fight since concerns all the people of the nation and has become quite rampant, all the political parties in this country have joined hands together against it. Along with PTI, PML-Q, PAT, and PPP will also be seen taking a sword of the anti-corruption movement in Pakistan. Only adding a question of concern, how large is the selfish interest of these parties in extending their support to each other and publicly further tampering the reputation of Nawaz Sharif?

It will now be an interesting and simultaneously analytical exercise for all to await a swift investigation against all the accused and also the reaction of the controversial and not so celebrated Prime Minister of Pakistan.

Vow To Hold Peace Talks With India: Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan Tuesday vowed to hold peace talks with arch-rival India following elections in the neighbouring country, after a similar offer from the former cricketer was “rebuffed.”

Khan made the announcement during a speech at a Saudi Arabian investment conference where the newly minted leader launched a charm offensive targeting potential investors as Pakistan seeks to secure funds amid a yawning balance of payment crisis.

“When I won the elections and came to power the first thing I tried to do was extend a hand of peace to India,” Khan told the crowd at the Future Investment Initiative (FII) in Riyadh, saying the overture was later “rebuffed” by Delhi.

“Now what we are hoping is that we wait until the elections then again we will resume our peace talks with India,” he added, referring to upcoming nationwide polls scheduled to take place by mid-May.

In September India pulled the plug on a rare meeting between its foreign minister and her Pakistani counterpart on the sidelines of a UN summit — a move that was termed “arrogant” by Khan and unleashed a barrage of insults from both sides.

India has long accused Pakistan of backing militants in Kashmir, a Himalayan territory divided between the two countries but claimed in full by both since independence in 1947.

Delhi has stationed about 500,000 soldiers in the portion of Kashmir it controls, where separatist groups demand independence or a merger with Pakistan.

Khan’s call for peace talks comes as his administration is desperately seeking funds from “friendly” countries, including Saudi Arabia, to shore up Pakistan’s deteriorating finances.

The prime minister’s attendance at the FII comes as leading policy-makers and corporate chiefs shunned the conference in response to the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

During his address at the FII Khan confirmed that Pakistan was also in talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) over a new bailout.
