  • Pakistan Zindabad Rally was held on September 6 in Karachi.
  • Imran Khan’s PTI party was the organizer.
  • Khan called for September 24 as Raiwind March where people from across the country will march to Raiwind to protest against corruption.

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.

The rally was meant to tighten the throat of the Prime Minister and family is expected to gain a lot of public support and participation. 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.

According to media reports, the increasing budget deficit is a major concern for the Tehreek-e-Insaf-led government under the IMF programme. Its campaign to deal with the financial emergency failed to yield any positive results during the last financial year 2018-19, when the budget deficit escalated to highest ever absolute figures.

The government has already banned provision of refreshments such as tea or biscuits during official meetings, causing some consternation as official meetings often go on for hours creating problems for people with health problems.

However, ignoring the criticism, the Ministry of Finance on Friday issued an Office Memorandum (OM) announcing more austerity measures for financial year 2019-20 with immediate effect. Under the new order:
