Imran Khan now worrying about demography-change in Jammu-Kashmir, better answer about large-scale demography-change in Pakistan after independence
New Delhi,12/08/19:Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, a total failure to solve internal problems of Pakistan, is exhibiting his big concern on removal of irrelevant portions of article 370 and 35A of Indian constitution by the Indian Parliament just to divert attention of Pakistani people from their internal problems. Now he has expressed worry on likely change in demography in Jammu-Kashmir state of India. Ut he should first answer about minority Hindus in Pakistan having been reduced now to even less than two-percent from fifteen-percent at time of independence.
I recall once having asked the then Pakistan High Commissioner in India at a media-conclave at Hotel Oberoi (New Delhi) about whereabouts of Kashmiri Pandits in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir. His totally unbelievable reply was that there were no Kashmiri Pandits in that part of PoK at time of independence.

The signals and blinkers is being undertaken by the special interest by Mr.Chakravarty Singh Rathore,IAS Commissioner, Berhampur Municipal Corporation and Mr Pinak Mishra,IPS,Superitendent of Police Berhampur.
The important part of this project is the latest technology in traffic engineering under the research and development organization. told by Mr Rathore,Commissioner.The BeMC always particular to make the city total accident free zone, for which the Corporatation have already started the construction of all the major roads inside the city.
Improved travel time reliability, reduction in congestion, distribution of green phase time equitably, faster response to traffic conditions, providing timely emergencies and support, predicting traffic volumes including adjustment to signal timings. he added.
Drivers and bike riders says it’s a privilege, for us but the wayward drivers illegal riders mainly the teen agers riders rather create problem in road when we are in proper drive mood.
Other hand the walkers said, since the roads belong to the public, it's not really up to motorists to drive whatever way they wish. There are rules of the road and police to enforce them. If there weren't traffic laws for drivers to obey.
There are so many road laws it's hard to keep them all straight. Laws can even vary depending on the state, making matters more complicated. With so many laws that are always changing and differ depending on where one is at, it isn't shocking that wayward riders creating trouble for cops(?)In such cases police should initiate maximum enforce them all. Drivers often know which laws they are and are even willing to exploit it. Some laws, whether they exist for a good reason or not, aren't taken seriously.
Drivers ignore these traffic rules because they know they can get away with it. They know it's unlikely they'll even get caught or pulled over in the first place.
Some are even confident in their abilities to talk themselves out of valid documents. If they do. Whatever the case may be, even the riders pay the fine and some of them are taking one advantage or excuse still than they repeat the same mistakes and are not hesitating to misbehave to the Cops and in many cases they are putting variety of influence on Police.
So the civic sense citizen should raise their voice and to honour our law and abide the rules which was applicable to all. Police alone can’t do anything that is we to decide what to obey.
