RDA to establish Leh Expressway, sewage treatment plant

RDA to establish Leh Expressway, sewage treatment plant

It’s said that the Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) was given permission by Prime Minister Imran Khan to build the Leh Expressway and a sewage treatment plant for the city of Rawalpindi in the area of Nullah Leh on Sunday (March 20). He asked that the project’s first report be done by the 15th of Ramzan.

In April, the premier will lay the foundation stone for the Leh Expressway, and it will be ready in two or three years. It’s said that the Asian Development Bank will give PKR 30 billion to help build this sewage treatment plant in Gorakhpur, India. It will be built on 5,500 kanals of land that the Water and Sanitation Agency owns (WASA).

The Punjab government has given the go-ahead for the construction of a sewage treatment plant and a 20-kilometer sewer tunnel in Rawalpindi to make sure that wastewater is safely disposed of and to cut down on pollution.

The water that has been cleaned will be put into Swan River and used for irrigation. Ten feet wide and ten feet deep under the Nullah Leh, the tunnel will be 10 feet wide and 10 feet deep. It will also get water from the city’s drainage system.

Railway Bridge should be finished by May, which would connect the first part of the road with the rest. From this point, a small mountain has been cut down to make a one-kilometers area that is clear. A double road is going to be built in the next few weeks on the next two kilometers. The next two kilometers of levelling have also been done.

The issue of a graveyard that was blocking the alignment of the road has been worked out in good faith. So, the first phase of the project is likely to be done in the time frame that was set for it.

Phase two: In the second phase, an 8-mile road will be built from Murree Road near Quaid-i-Azam University. It will pass through Bhara Kahu, then link back up with Murree Road.

China expresses willingness to expand the CPEC to include Afghanistan

China expresses willingness to expand the CPEC to include Afghanistan

Kabul: China welcomes Afghanistan’s participation in the Belt and Road Initiative, a global infrastructure plan proposed by China. China is willing to push for the CPEC to be extended to Afghanistan, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Thursday as he made a surprise visit to Kabul.

According to a statement from an Afghan foreign ministry spokesman, people from both countries talked about how to improve their political and economic ties, including how to start mining and how Afghanistan might be able to help China with its Belt and Road infrastructure project.

Wang said on Thursday that China was willing to help Afghanistan become a bridge between China and the rest of the world by extending the CPEC to the country.

He also said that China hoped that Afghanistan would keep its promise not to let outside forces use its land to fight its neighbours or harm the security of other countries.

Wang went to Kabul on Thursday, a spokesman for Afghanistan’s foreign ministry said. Taliban took power last year, and it came a day after many people around the world were angry about the group closing down girls’ high schools.

When the Taliban took Afghanistan in August, only a few countries sent a minister. China is one of them. Pakistan and Qatar have also sent a minister to Afghanistan.

Foreign governments, including Beijing, have not yet formally recognised the Taliban administration. Many say the Taliban need to show that they will protect human rights, fight terrorism, and run an inclusive government before being officially recognised.

The visit came after a lot of people around the world were outraged that the Taliban government suddenly told girls to stay home from high school, even though it had said earlier in the week that school would be open to everyone.

China will host a meeting of regional foreign ministers later this month, and a statement said that Muttaqi would also be at the meeting, which will happen later this month.

Pakistan also talked about Taliban-led Afghanistan joining the multibillion-dollar CPEC project in September.

At the time, Pakistan’s ambassador to Kabul, Mansoor Ahmad Khan, told Reuters that “regional connectivity” was essential to their talks with the Afghan government and how they planned to do business with Afghanistan.

“This important project, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, has a lot of good opportunities and a lot of good potential for connecting Afghanistan and Pakistan and connecting South Asia and the Central Asian region.”

Mr Khan said that talks had been held with the Taliban-led government about this and other ways to grow the country’s economy.

That’s what I think. There’s been a more of interest in connecting Afghanistan’s economy with Pakistan and other neighbouring countries through the CPEC and with China and Central Asia.

Under the CPEC deal, China has agreed to loan Pakistan $60 billion for infrastructure projects. Most of that money will come in the form of loans.

In 2013, President Xi Jinping started the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which aims to use China’s strength at financing and building infrastructure to “build a broad community of shared interests” in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. CPEC is a big part of the BRI, which aims to do this.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi, the foreign minister of Pakistan, gave his speech at the 48th Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which started on Tuesday in Islamabad. He said that the meeting is a bridge between Muslim countries and the rest of the world, and that it helps solve problems in the Muslim world.

Before he started speaking, Pakistan took the lead of the 48th session of the moot. Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi was in charge of the meeting.

Meeting: This year’s theme is “Building Partnerships for Justice and Development.” It’s a two-day meeting of the 57-member body of Muslim countries. Most of the states in the meeting at the ministerial level are from 46 of them. Other high-ranking officials will also be on hand to represent the rest.

Qureshi asked the OIC to come up with a collective answer to the problems facing the Muslim Ummah. He said that the OIC is the collective voice of nearly two billion Muslims.

“It is a link between Muslim countries and the rest of the world. Pakistan’s foreign policy is based on promoting unity and cooperation in the Muslim Ummah, which is one of its main goals “When Pakistan is chair of the 48th OIC meeting, he said that his main goal will be making sure that the Muslim countries work better together.

As Qureshi said: “The Muslim world has to deal with wars and occupation in the Middle East, as well as people who don’t have a say in their own lives.”

“It’s been a long time since the Muslims of Palestine and the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) have been freed from oppression. For the last seven decades, they have worked hard to get their right to self-determination, which is something they can’t give up “The foreign minister said that.

He said that Muslims are becoming more angry because of how often other countries intervene in Muslim countries. “Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Myanmar, and Somalia are home to more than two-thirds of all refugees in the world.”

Qureshi said that Muslim countries are taking in the most refugees right now.

“While we must work to keep the Muslim world from being harmed by outsiders, only we can solve internal problems and fissures that we have to deal with ourselves. The key to ending these conflicts and disagreements is for all of the Islamic countries to work together “he said he thought about it.

The minister said that to fight ideologies of hate like Islamophobia and right-wing racism, people need to be strong and work together. “Muslims around the world have been hurt by a lot of incidents where the Holy Quran has been desecrated and caricatures have been reprinted. They also cause a lot of pain in the Islamic world.”

Pensioners from the railway industry will not be granted any relief

Pensioners from the railway industry will not be granted any relief

The situation of pensioners who work for Pakistan Railways, the country’s largest state-owned company, is getting worse. It’s possible that not all of the pensioners will get their delayed monthly pension this month because the finance ministry hasn’t released the full amount.

Sources in the railways ministry told  that the finance ministry had been asked to spend Rs48 billion a year on pensions, but only Rs42 billion was released. Out of that, Rs36 billion had already been given to pensioners.

In the next few months, Pakistan Railways (PR) might not be able to pay pensions to retired workers and their widows unless the finance ministry gives them the rest.

In the past, the government has turned down a plan to set up a pension fund.

People who have talked to them say that the rail ministry is in talks with the finance ministry about taking over the payment of pensions for rail workers, just like other government departments and civil servants get their pensions. If this is the case, no decision has so far been made in this case.

March 1 was when the secretary of transportation asked for the transfer of pension payments for Pakistani Railway workers to the Controller General Accounts and Auditor General for Pakistan Revenue. This is what the letter said. Another thing the letter said was that the pension payment roll was ready for the transfer of pension on March 1. However, the account for pensions doesn’t have enough money in it, and the finance ministry doesn’t seem to care.

About 125,000 PR pensioners were mentioned in the letter to the finance secretary. The letter warned that the situation could lead to unrest among the pensioners, which could be embarrassing for the government. This would be a bad thing for them. It will also be against Supreme Court orders if the pension payment isn’t made on time.

“The Finance Division has not agreed to the Railway Ministry’s request for Rs4.500 billion,” the letter said. “The Finance Division has not agreed to the Railway Ministry’s request for funds,” the letter said.

There is still no decision from the ministries of rail and finance. Pensioners, especially low-paid and widowed ones, are still having problems getting their money on time. It has been said that two commercial banks that are supposed to pay pensions haven’t yet received scrolls that say how much money they should pay.

It’s because of official holidays that all banks are closed, so pension payments won’t be possible until the banks open again.

There was a proposal from the railways ministry to make it easier for pensioners to be paid directly like other government workers. The finance ministry hasn’t yet made a decision on the proposal.

Already, the government has said no to setting up a pension fund for people who work for Pakistan Railways. In this case, a company hired by Pakistan Railways to help with the project came up with a plan for how to set up a pension fund.

The goal of setting up the fund was to cover the costs of pensions for employees in the future. There has been a lot of delay in setting up the pension fund, so there hasn’t been a pension reserve until now. The lack of a credible estimate of pension liabilities has also made it difficult for the government to make changes to the way it spends money on pensions.

People who work for Pakistan Railways have a Defined Benefit (DB) pension plan that they pay for as they go. In the absence of a pension fund, the federal government is now paying for the pension costs of Pakistan Railways.

For a total of $180m, they signed three framework agreements. They were for financing for Rs310bn worth of MDHP. The construction contract for the project was handed to a consortium of China Gezhouba Group Company (CGGC) and Abdul Razak Dawood’s Descon Engineering in 2019. Construction began in September 2019 and will be finished by December 2025.

MDHP is a multi-purpose concrete-faced rockfill dam that is being built on the Swat River in the Mohmand District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. It is about 48 kilometres from Peshawar and 5 kilometres upstream of Munda Head Works. People in Peshawar, Pakistan, will get 13.32 cubic metres of clean drinking water and more than 6,000 jobs due to this project. It will generate 1,300 megawatts of electricity and increase Pakistan’s water storage capacity by 1,293 million acre-feet (MAF).

Dr Muhammad Al Jasser, the head of the bank, said that the bank took great pride in working with its partners to help Pakistan with a project of national significance. The Arab Coordination Group and Pakistan’s Water and Power Development Authority are working together to build a multi-purpose dam that will not only provide more energy and water but also improve the lives of the people living near it and protect them from flooding.
