#NoBuraiOfPTI: Top 5 excuses PTI trolls make for their party
People say the PML-N government has an easy time of defending itself in the media with an almost unlimited federal advertisement budget and a coterie of brown-nosing ministers, led by the occasionally coy Pervaiz Rashid, willing to stake their reputation and self-respect (presumably) to defend all past, present and future generations of the Sharif family.

Unfortunately for Sharif, none of this compares to what his rival, PTI chief Imran Khan has: an army of intergalactic space trolls, unwilling to even believe the time on their wristwatches unless the great Khan vouches that they aren't rigged.

In fact, the excuses PTI trolls make for their party are so loud and single-minded that they have taken on a life of their own, surrounding the PTI chairman like a fiberglass bubble of obstinacy and deflecting any criticism coming his way.

Here are the top excuses PTI fans make for their party; and no, they're nothing to be proud of.

1. When someone asks why women keep getting harassed at PTI rallies

It wasn't one of us...

...But we've figured out how to thwart the Gullus anyway!

Because we are that serious about women's protection!

2. When some media person dares to criticize Imran Khan or the PTI

Is it just me, or is that lifafa peeking out the front of his pants...

Let your ego soar like the Hindenburg!

...As long as a journalist can pose seriously, it doesn't matter if he gets the facts wrong

The face of mulk-dost media

3. When people say Imran Khan hangs out with a bad crowd

Who said only the penguins are allowed to do it...

4. When people say that Imran Khan doesn't know how to lose

A wise man once said...

Never say die, even when you're dead!

...And when people talk about being a good sport, remind them about this:

And don't even ask what the Third Umpire does...

5. When people say the PTI is only popular among the burger crowd

Sawaal tou Gen1 hai...

Rupee below 290 against US dollar in interbank market

KARACHI – The Pakistani rupee on Tuesday continued its ascent, trading at less than Rs290 against the US dollar in the morning interbank market, primarily due to stringent measures in the financial sector.

The US dollar was valued at Rs289.78 around 9:48 am, as reported by the Forex Association of Pakistan, marking a decrease of Rs1.18 from the previous day’s closing rate of Rs290.86.

This ongoing rise in the value of the rupee follows the crackdown on illegal dollar trading initiated earlier this month, with strong support from the military.

In the open market, the rupee also made gains against the dollar, trading at Rs292 compared to the previous day’s rate of Rs293, according to the Exchange Companies Association of Pakistan.

Saad Bin Naseer, the director of the financial services platform Mettis Global, noted that this marked the 16th consecutive day of appreciation for the PKR, amounting to nearly a 6% increase.

Naseer attributed this surge primarily to administrative measures, stating that it seems the government’s crackdown on speculative elements contributing to rupee depreciation is having an effect.

He also suggested that if this trend persists and the Afghan border remains closed, the rupee could continue to appreciate in the future. However, he emphasized the importance of attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) into export-oriented sectors for long-term stability.
