    Government of Punjab has chronically failed in protecting the rights of people of Punjab. Which is evident from the fact that it has not made any efforts for the construction of Kalabagh Dam while Govt of Sind is very proactive even in wasting the water of river Indus in Arabian sea.If Punjab govt can not protect the rights of people living alongside river Indus,it will BE better to separate out those areas from Punjab,so that those people can protect their rights themselves. From NFC award it is evident that Punjab Govt has sacrificed the rights of people just for pleasing those who always hate punjab. Moreover Punjab Govt has not raised any concern about the suffering of people of Punjab in Baluchistan,Karachi and Sind. Thar coal project will have adverse effects on each and every living organism,atmosphere,enviroment in Punjab but Punjab Govt foolish leaders has not shown any concern about that project.

    Due to incompetent Punjab Government , situation has so much deteriorated that other provinces which are very vocal about Provincial autonomy are interfering in the affairs of Punjab by violating provincial autonomy of Punjab , for example Sindh Province Government and Assembly has started to give suggestions to Punjab that which Canal should be kept opened or closed, which Dam (hydrel project ) should be constructed or not, and which land of Punjab should be cultivated or not, while Punjab Government is completely silent about such interference, while Sindh Government is busy in wasting River Indus water in Arabian sea which is a sin and crime against humanity but Punjab government is making no objection about such wastage.

    You are right. this is a virtual trip but I’ve made sure whatever information is presented here is authentic and researched so that people traveling here can use it.

    Hello Owais – thanks for the reply. I think I must have misunderstood the part “We started our journey on N55 Indus Highway from its zero …”. I was thinking about you doing video blogging as you traveled through your journey in Pakistan, but I think this is a virtual trip, correct, i.e. you are not physically traveling though Pakistan.

    To someone from US: I tried to look for N55 photos on flickr etc but didn’t find any. I don’t have any personal photos either as I have only travelled portions of this highway and that too atleast 20-25 years ago. Ofcourse I am always looking for photos – if I find any I’ll share the link.

    Salam Owais – would there be some videos or pictures that you will be posting?
