Budget 2024-25 to increase the tyranny of Black Money Holders

The national budget is not merely an annual account of income and expenditure but, in the current context, it serves as a tool to earn the trust and confidence of the people. The government's vision and goals are not confined within the boundaries of budgetary directives alone. Instead, it reflects the initiatives or measures the government is taking or will take to achieve or address issues related to the country's tendencies, resource acquisition, or problem-solving in various aspects. It provides direction on how the government intends to fulfill or will fulfill the expectations of the citizens.

Western powers never wanted political stability in the Middle East

It is very difficult to say anything specific about the Middle East in general as there are Muslims in the Middle East, (but, being a little bit harsh) there are also some Munafiqs (hypocrites) there. Western countries have a fascination with the Middle East because of its wealth and resources. Attracted by those resources, Western powers are always eager to expand their influence in the Middle East. Most importantly, Western countries never wanted political stability in the Middle East. So they have been running one proxy war after another in the region. At the moment, there is a fear of a conventional war in the Middle East centered on the conflict between Iran and Israel. I hope Iran and Israel don't get into a conventional war. If the two countries get into a traditional war, it will be alarming for everyone.

In the realm of governance, political leaders play a crucial role as auxiliary forces within governmental institutions. Therefore, it is imperative for government officials to uphold honesty and sincerity in their duties. However, in our country, there is a noticeable lack of integrity and morality among a certain class of government officials. Efforts to enhance the morality of government officials are not being adequately pursued. While there is a legal obligation for government officials to submit asset declarations annually, this requirement is often overlooked.
