This symbolic erection has been used as means of expressing wealth, power, manifestation of authority and influence of empire. Multan as an important and central point of Southern Punjab came under the British empire in the mid of 19<sup>th</sup> century. The British erected urban and religious establishments to exhibit their power, authority, wealth and control. Multan has been a rich region with a strong legacy of architectural heritage from the oldest hindu times to the time of British’s Muslim predecessors. However, British contributed significantly to that heritage. Northbrook Tower and Ripon Hall (Ghanta-Ghar Multan) is one of the major Imperial administrative establishments in Multan constructed with a blend of the English and Indian (synthesis of Indian and Mughal) architecture between 1884 to 1888 CE. According to Francoise Dasques, the clock tower was built using Anglo Indian, Indo Saracenic and Greeko-Roman patterns.&nbsp; The purpose of this paper is analyze the structure, style and approach of the Ghanta-Ghar establishgment, along with exploring the tradition of clock towers in India by the British and amalgamation of native &amp; European built environment. Hence the paper highlights the elements and features used in architectural scheme of the building and explains the nature of its structure with a contribution-assessment of use and compatibility of native/indigenous and foreign techniques and materials&nbsp; The paper explains the advent of British in Multan and its construction in the area very briefly while it explains the history, construction of Northbrook Clock tower and Ripon Hall, its construction style, structural pattern, and decorative material in detail.

The political leaders failed to seek solution to the poverty in society. Poverty also encompasses poor health and individual cannot cover basic needs such as food, housing, and clothes. The present study is focused on historical perspective of poverty in Pakistan. The reasons for rising poverty in Pakistan are discussed and important factors are enumerated that could dent poverty. On the basis of the systematic literature review of past studies, the key policy variables are highlighted to reduce poverty. The concept of poverty reduction is multi-dimensional phenomenon which requires macroeconomic management as well as poverty targeted programs. Among the macro-economic management, the sustainable inclusive growth with special focus in reducing income inequality is highly important for addressing poverty in Pakistan. The micro financing for small enterprises and skill enhancement of the marginalized people have the ability to reduce poverty in Pakistan.

This comparative study has analyzed overall different governments' total revenues; total expenditure and governance expenditures and provides guidelines for economic agents and votaries for making their future expectations during upcoming times. The logical framework of the study tri-angulated; used van Dijk’s PDA (Political Discourse Analytical) model by utilizing the method of Wodak (2001) and comparative budget analysis (Wildavesky, 1986). The results show that partisan resource allocations have a marginally significant effect on development expenditure (Public Services Development Programs and other PSDP) allocation in the federal budget on governance indicators in Pakistan. Some indicators like accountability and corruption, law and order and information and telecommunication show some partisan marginal effect but nothing different in resource allocation about e-governance, police and civil reforms. The PTI government has devoted more allocation to law and order and information and telecommunications rather than national accountability and corruption.</em></p> 2022-06-09T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 PERENNIAL JOURNAL OF HISTORY http://pjh.wum.edu.pk/index.php/ojs/article/view/105 Promotion of English Language Under British Rule in Punjab (1849-1947) 2022-06-13T06:15:56+00:00 Muhammad Safdar Sasrana Safdarsasrana70@gmail.com Turab Ul Hassan Sargana Safdarsasrana70@gmail.com <p><em>During the British invasion of India in the sixteenth century the Dutch East India Company developed markets in many cities and towns under their control.
