    If we pull together in pulling that car up at the track, we shall surely pull through it. Otherwise, it'll pull down whatever comes in its way.

    Good job @shasha96 . :)

    Here's just a slight correction:-
    We can pull down this law by pulling together. As per as the public demand, this law needs to be pulled up, if you (I think people would sound better though) want to pull through it.

    SO, here's your correction @Qandeelrashique :-

    We should pull together in pulling up the trend of cheating which is pulling down our people. I hope we would pull through it.

    @Dora - There has been a bit of confusion about "pull up".

    For vehicles it means come to a halt. "They pulled up at the drive in."

    For planes it means to increase the altitude of an aircraft. "He pulled up the nose just before he landed."

    For exercise you do pull ups by raising oneself with your arms by pulling up against a horizontal bar fixed above your head.

    There are some idioms that use "pull up" for example, pull something up by its roots, pull up your socks, to pull up a chair.

    We pulled up outside the community centre just before they pulled it down. We had all pulled together to save it, but to no avail. We will have to hope the community will pull through.
