A group of people in Pakistan occupied Kashmir's Tarar Khel held a protest against the country's newly-appointed Prime Minister Imran Khan.

According to ANI, people from PoK expressed their anger against the Pakistan government on Saturday, Aug 25.

The protest was held to demand basic infrastructure facilities like schools and colleges. The protestors said that these facilities were their right and not any kind of favour being done by the ruling government. They said that the taxes they pay go into the pockets of the powers that be. The protestors added that every Prime Minister of Pakistan only makes false promises.

The protesters further said that their demands are being ignored by the newly-formed government in the country and even Imran Khan has made false promises. 

Cricketer turned politician Imran Khan of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-insaaf (PTI) party was sworn-in as the 22nd Prime Minister of Pakistan on Aug 18 after his party won from 115 seats out of 270 seats. 

Khan's 21-member cabinet, is made up mostly of people who held key posts in the government of former dictator General (retd) Pervez Musharraf.

Improving the dwindling economy of Pakistan, tackling the rising extremism, controlling the increasing population growth, finding a solution to the water shortage in the country and maintaining civil-military relations remain some of the most important challenges for the country's new government.
