In 2011, only 42% of households at the national level were food secure, according to the nutrition survey. A majority of households experienced some form of food insecurity, with nearly 10% declared as “food insecure with severe hunger”. As of 2016, the cost of a basic nutritious diet was around Rs. 2,100 per capita per month. But nearly a third of Pakistan’s population lives below the poverty line of Rs. 3,000 per adult per month.
The shortage of staff is not unique to the Kahuta THQ. Statistics shared by the health authority in response to a Right to Information request by Media for Transparency show a similar situation of understaffed THQs across the Rawalpindi district.

ISPR also focusing on improving quality of videos
Rawalpindi: ISPR has successfully released its second musical video in the memory of the APS Peshawar victims. It hopes to fill the security gap of the country with such musical videos, Khabaristan Times has learnt.
“We have huge plans for spreading patriotic slogans across the country about Pakistan so that they forget their security concerns, and music is the best medium for this,” an ISPR official told Khabaristan Times.
It isn’t only music, ISPR is focusing on improving the quality of its videos, according to reports.
“We are hiring better singers and conducting stage shows,” the official revealed. “See, the army is tired of fighting and we too need a break, so we have asked to get the budget transferred to the ISPR funding so we can better entertain people in a lawful manner.”
He continued: “What we are planning now is the biggest event ever in the history of the world. We invite Taliban to fight with us to the beats! We are going to very soon conduct a dance-off!”
“ISPR has been in the shadows for many years now, but with ‘Main aisi Qaum’ and ‘Dushman ke bacho ko parhana hai’ we are finally in the limelight and we won’t let it go so easily.”
Reports suggest that the dance off will be conducted around the Zarb-e-Azb schedule and will decide the final winner of the ongoing military operation. People from the TTP are in contact with the ISPR finalising the details.
“No suicide bombing or shooting will be allowed during the show. We will definitely win Inshallah. We were born to entertain, and it’s time we bring out the showmen in us. TTP has some hidden in them too, our spies have revealed,” confirmed the ISPR official.
“The dance off will help exert the aggression on both sides, making music the platform of all fights. Because entertainment is more important than the security of the people or challenging any ideologies,” said a military analyst while talking to Khabaristan Times.
