The Sui gas field is the major, secretarial for 26% of Pakistan’s gas produce.

THAR COAL RESERVES


THAR COAL RESERVES.

If All The Oil Reserves of Saudi Arab & Iran Put jointly
These Are just about 375 Billion Barrels,
But
A Single Thar Coal Reserve of  Sindh is about 850 Trillion Cubic Feet,
Which is additional Than Oil Reserves Of Saudi & Iran.

These assets estimated at 850 trillion cubic feet (TCF) of gas, about 30 times higher thanPakistan ‘s established gas reserves of 28 TCF.

Dr Murtaza Mughal president of Pakistan Economy Watch in a declaration said that these reserves of coal worth USD 25 trillion can not only cater the electricity supplies of the country for next 100 years but also save just about four billion dollars in staggering oil import bill.

Just 2% usage of Thar Coal Reserve Can Produce 20,000 Mega Watts of Electricity for next 40Years, without any single Second of Load cracking.
and if the whole reserves are utilized, then it could effortlessly be probable how much energy could be generated.

The coal power generation would cost Pakistan PK.R 5.67 per unit while power generated by Independent Power Projects cost PK.R 9.27.

It Requires Just original 420 Billion Rupees original Investment,
Whereas Pakistan Receives once a year 1220 Billion from Tax Only.

Chinese and other companies had not only approved out surveys and feasibilities of this project but also obtainable 100 percent savings in last 7 to 8 years but the “Petroleum Gang always dispirited them in a very methodical way.

But Petroleum lobby , is very strapping in Pakistan and they are against any other means of power generation excluding for the imported oil. This lobby is major benefactor of the increasing oil bill that is probable above 15 billion dollar this year. Even GOVT. is planning to Sell all these reserve to a company on a very low price.
When Parvez Musharraf was president he gave green signal to embark upon the opening of work on exploiting energy possible of these coal reserves of Thar under a fresh strategy.

UNSTABE PARLIAMENTARY DEMOCRACY PAKISTAN


The new charter not with standing, political volatility continued because no established majority party emerged in the National Assembly. Prime Minister Ali remained in office only pending September 1956, when he was not capable to retain his bulk in the National Assembly and was succeeded by Hussain Shaheed Suhrawardy, creator of the Awami League of East Pakistan. He created a union cabinet that incorporated the Awami League and the Republican Party of the West Wing, a new party that was shaped by protester members of the Muslim League. still, President Mirza forced Suhrawardy to resign after he exposed that the prime minister was scheduling to support Firoz Khan Noon, leader of the Republican Party, for the administration in the country’s first general elections, listed for January 1959. The following coalition government, headed by Ismail Ibrahim Chundrigar of the Muslim League, lasted only two months before it was replaced by a Republican social gathering cabinet under Noon..

President Mirza, realize he had no chance of being reelected president and frankly displeased with parliamentary democratic system, proclaimed martial law on October 7, 1958. He dismissed Noon’s government, dissolved the National Assembly, and canceled the listed general elections. Mirza was supported by General Muhammad Ayub Khan, commander in chief of the army, who was named chief martial-law administrator. 20 days later Ayub compulsory the president to resign and understood the presidency himself.

EFFECTS OF POVERTY IN PAKISTAN


EFFECTS OF POVERTY IN PAKISTAN

Special effects of Poverty in Pakistan are limitless. Almost every side of life is affected straightly and unstraightly. To understand in better way we have divided the Effects of Poverty in Pakistan in two categories.

EFFECTS OF POVERTY ON SOCIETY.

first and most instant Effects of Poverty in Pakistani civilization is that People will not send their child to Schools. As we know that “CHILD IS THE FATHER OF TOMORROW”, if our child wasted in this way then not only our Society but nation will face problems in the future. Today in Pakistan about 4 million Children in the age group of 5-14 years are working (Federal Bureau of Statistics).(FBS)

This is poverty which strength them to work in the formative years at very unsafe places Underground mines, work with live electrical wires over 50 V, Cement industry, Tobacco process and manufacturing .

De-track from Moral and Religious values.

“No man can adoration God or love his neighbor on an unfilled stomach”

From the above quotes we can very easily recognize that what people are doing in the state of Poverty. They did not care of the honest or Religious value. What is good for them is that which gratify their needs and provisions.

Crimes and Violence.

Crime and violence is the direct Effect of Poverty in Pakistan. The mainly common form of human trafficking is for prostitution (violence), which is largely fueled by poverty. According to a survey, most of poor men violence on their wives for income purposes. They force their women family members to earn something even by advertising their bodies. Street crime is also the eventual Effect of Poverty in Pakistan

Sub-standard lives.

By observing above factors one can very simply understand that generally Effect of Poverty in Pakistani civilization is that, they are living Sub-Standard life.

Health Problem.

Poor people are suffering from lots of diseases. They haven’t sufficient resources for management. This is the reason that Pakistanis ranked 135th out of 194 countries in the Index of Life expectation at the time of Birth. InPakistan the life expectation rate at the time of Birth is very low i.e. 65 years. while, in western countries it is 80+ years i.e.Japan,Hong Kong,Australia,Switzerland,Iceland.

EFFECTS OF POVERTY ON COUNTRY

Terrorism.

Terrorism is not only the problem of any exact country, but, it is the problem of the world. But on the other hand we should also understand that in Pakistan the terrorist are produced more than any country of the world that is why Pakistan is called the TERRORIST FACTORY. The logic following is that, the Pakistani people are unqualified, poor and victims of War on Terrorism. Here people are very easily sold and purchased even at very low amount of money. They did not care of their lives. Due to lack of education they are convinced for suicide bombing. Today because of War on Terrorism we are paying uncountable amount every year. According to an officials figures the cost of this war is between $30-40 billion.

Debt-Trap.

Due to bad environment (Law and Order) not only foreign investors are unwilling to invest here but our domestic investors are also. Our financial system is totally collapsed and our debt-trap is reduction day by day. As of December 2010, our total foreign debt was $58.5 billion. About 30% of GDP every year we are paying as Debt service.

Dependence on Aid.

In such state we have not any other alternative but to depend on Foreign Aid. Now it is ordinary that in exchange we have to cooperation on some issues. Today Drone attacks are the effect of that Aid.

The Social and Political discord.

Generally in our country there will be nothing but conflicts in every sector of Pakistan.
