Anti Fracking protesters demonstrate in front of the Waldorf Astoria as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo visits the hotel for a function in New York City.

They are doing excellent efforts to warm themselves in bitter cold season Chandigarh and our Pakistani political Parties are also flaming with new dialogs before Election and saving their Flourishing Feature and their forthcoming kids political feature as well. Difference is we are as Nation all Pakistani are burning instead of wood and our politicians are warming themselves. There is no solution, every year, everyday becoming worse than before. We all as whole nation are near to die. Everyone is running overseas for better feature. I do believe, if its announced that any Pakistani who which to get immigration available without any requirement any documentation for USA, UK, CANADA, AUSTRALIA no one would like to stay in Pakistan. I am going to publish one book to be published from Australia. I have given one idea to safe Peoples life from the Pakistani Politicians Hands
