Taking on the fight against corruption


Former senator and current Sindh MPA Saeed Ghani is fighting the corrupt elements in media who level false allegatoins against politicians to divert attention from the corrupt elements in PTI.

Eventually, he reached Islamabad and went to the News One office. He wasn’t let in, so he sat on the footpath and tweeted out a couple of photos of his, much to the delight of his followers on twitter

India's River Diversion Plan and South Asia's Waters

More dams are to come, as India’s need to power its economy means it is quietly spending billions on hydropower in Kashmir. The Senate report totted up 33 hydro projects in the border area with Pakistan. The state’s chief minister, Omar Abdullah, says dams will add an extra 3,000MW to the grid in the next eight years alone. Some analysts in Srinagar talk of over 60 dam projects, large and small, now on the books.
