Imran khan using kashmir issue to hide his incompetence ?

Recommended Posts

Isn't it obvious? In fact, I feel Imran Khan actually called Modi and thanked him personally for providing a great deflection in the form of abrogation of article 370. Pakistan is in tatters and close to becoming a completely failed state. Imran Khan is not able to do anything about it.

Pakistan’s budget deficit rose to the highest in almost three decades, ahead of the International Monetary Fund’s first quarterly review of a bailout program that sought to curtail a fiscal blowout.

 

The deficit increased to 8.9 per cent of the nation’s gross domestic product in the year ended June compared with 6.6% a year earlier, according to provisional numbers released by the Finance Ministry. That’s a big miss for the government, which targeted a narrower 5.6 per cent gap.

 

The South Asian nation must also increase government revenue by more than 40% in the fiscal year that began in July, as part of the conditions for a $6 billion loan. Pakistan’s loan from the IMF could be in jeopardy if the trend of the government missing revenue target continues.
 
“It seems an uphill task,” said Samiullah Tariq, director research at Arif Habib Ltd., in Karachi. “If they’re unable to meet the target for the quarter, then a mini budget to raise taxes is possible in order to clear the next IMF quarterly review.”
 

The total revenue declined by 20% in the latest quarter due to a 98% decline in non-tax revenue, according to Tariq

Immy himself has turned Pakistani Govenment into, Masood, JeM, LeT mouth pieces, fundraiser, terrorist state. This guy is rattling nuclear sabre.

 

Hope, IMF, World Banks, FATF and UN take decisive action. 

 

After 68 years of attempting good relations and MFN status despite constant opposition in every forum by Pakistan, It took just 3+ year for India to “isolate Pakistan” globally. 

 

It wont take too long if India decides to build a coalition “against Pakistan “ and execute economic sanctions

See on the economic front he inheritated a total mess. We cannot blame him for this.

 

Pakistan biggest issue has been lack of tax collection. It results in them going to imf again and again who inturn impose harsh conditions. This further results in stuff like currency devaluation high inflation and low growth.

 

The question is can Imran break that cycle and heavily raise government revenue. Only time will tell.

 

For all the bluster from Pakistanis on Kashmir, simply paying what they owe to the government might significantly strengthen their hand.

He just wants to divert the Public's attention from the economic crisis which has gripped the terrorist nation. 

What better way to manipulate awam's opinion than the age old golden issue of Kashmir which always comes in handy in such situations if the past is anything to go by. 

I ,for one, am enjoying this meltdown from Kaali daal as this exposes his actual disposition and how he has been a snake all along despite displaying moral grandstanding numerous times in the past. 

 

Don't forget this cretin has admitted wilfully cheating on cricket field while he played for Pakistan. He has always been a back stabbing opportunist who for long had hid behind the charade of his humanitarian activities which themselves are nothing but most likely a farce for money laundering and terrorist financing. 

He is a scumbag and a liar and with his legacy already tarnished, he would probably (and deservedly so) go down in the history as the meekest Pakistani PM of all time.

The same thing can also be said about Modi. Indian media devotes it's 80% of its time discussing Kashmir , 370, Pakistan ,imran instead of economy and job losses.

Modi initiated an internal matter. He got things passed through the parliament. It was also an item on the bjp manifesto for decades.

 

Secondly india just had elections a few months ago. This means Modi had political capital built up anyways  such that he did not need 370 to divert anything. In your own state Haryana the opposition is in tatters with inld and congress in process of splitting. Ie there is literally no opposition worth its salt capable of taking him on.

 

Imran khan is a year old in government, outside a honeymoon period

I don't know which newspapers you read but the ones I follow are filled with the Govt's inability to arrest the economic slow down and how it is curbing the freedom of press and it's purported human rights violations in the valley. 

Even the local ghise pite news channels are talking about this slump in economy which in all likelihood is temporary and largely due to things out of our control given the global headwinds. 

Besides Kashmir and revocation of art 370 is India's internal matter and Pakistan has no locus standi here. 

Your analogy would have been right had Modi devoted his entire time spewing rhetoric about Balochistan or other insurgency suffering Pakistani regions. The man hasn't even retorted once to Kaali Daal's constant blathering about Kashmir.

There's no comparison here whatsoever.

Higher energy, food prices push inflation up to 87-month high

Pakistan’s inflation rate touched 87-month highest level of 11.6 percent in August this year as a result of higher energy and food prices. Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS) has released two figures of CPI (consumer price index) based inflation as one figure with old methodology and second with rebasing exercise. On both accounts, the CPI based inflation has shown rising trends. Inflation with new base year (2015-16) has increased by 10.49 percent, highest in 69 months. Meanwhile, on old methodology, the inflation has gone to seven years and three months (87 months) high of 11.6 percent in August 2019 over the corresponding period of last year.

Why PM Imran Khan should first worry about his own country and then Kashmir

 

While Pakistan has tried to raise the Kashmir issue on the global stage, Prime Minister Imran Khan has to realise that that is really all he can do. The Foreign Office and Shah Mahmood Qureshi will now continue to raise a voice for the people of Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK) on the international platform, and Imran should now focus on the domestic issues in Pakistan. After all, that’s what he was elected to do. But this seems unlikely.

Here are a few things that Imran should focus his attention towards instead.

Economic turmoil

The current budget deficit has soared to Rs3.45 trillion, which has only broken the back of an already struggling economy. For any government, the first priority must always be the betterment of the economic conditions in the nation in order to attract investors and capital. The devaluation of the rupee has not only resulted in rising external debts, but it has almost brought to a standstill the circulation of capital in the economy because of reluctant investors.

Imran’s narrative of shifting the blame of all the economic failures onto previous regimes is also losing steam since it has been more than a year since he has been at the helm of affairs. The automobile industry in particular is suffering, and both Indus and Honda have cut their production because inflation and price hikes have decreased the demand for their cars. A similar fate has befallen the real estate sector and the finance advisor to Imran, Abdul Hafeez Shaikh, has already said that the road towards an economic revival will be a difficult one.

Perhaps Imran should be paying slightly closer attention towards Pakistan’s crumbling economy.

Health sector

Ever since the devaluation of the currency, the masses have been left at the mercy of pharmaceutical companies because medicine prices have skyrocketed. As a result, the fees charged by government hospitals are now continuing to spike up. ‘The Holy Family Hospital’ in Rawalpindi is currently charging around Rs1200 for the Dengue fever test. This is happening at a time when the prices of life-saving drugs are rising every month and dengue fever in the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad is spreading at an alarming rate. The hue and cry which erupted due to the Medical Teaching Institutions (MTI) Act will only further convolute our public healthcare system and hospital buildings, which are already in a pitiful state. If Imran were to visit some government hospitals, he would come to know that they are short of medicines and basic life-saving drugs.

Police reforms

The recent killing of Salahuddin Ayubi while he was in police custody has shocked the country. From the Sahiwal massacre to the Ayubi case, there have been numerous instances of police brutality, making it all the more apparent that the police sector needs to be reformed immediately. However, other than tall claims of taking immediate action and saying that justice will be provided to the aggrieved families, it is evident that nothing will change in the long-run.

Currently, the police seem to be acting on their own whim since they know that no one will be held accountable and the few suspensions or judicial inquiries will ultimately change nothing. If Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) cannot protect its own citizens from extrajudicial killings by the police department, then one wonders why the party claims that it is more concerned with the common man’s well-being than other political parties.

A flooded country

Pakistan is currently experiencing monsoon season and as a result major cities are drowning due to urban flooding. People are dying due to electrocution, roads are flooded, Karachi is turning into a dump city rather than a metropolitan city, and not much is being done about it except for a few empty promises of short-term policies.

An inefficient cabinet

The PTI cabinet seems unaware of the economic and political turmoil in the country. Most of the ministers like to spend time on Twitter or talk shows, accusing their political opponents of the current woes faced by the country. While this may give them some ratings and acceptability among the die-hard PTI voters, it does not address the problems of their relevant ministries.

Let’s take the Pakistan railways as an example. Like it or not, during Khawaja Saad Rafique’s in tenure as railway minister, at least it was a reliable source of transportation and logistics. However, since Sheikh Rasheed has taken charge, the railway sector has been on a constant decline and ultimately, this will only further the financial losses in the sector. Instead of threatening India with the use of nuclear arms, Rasheed should put his head down and get to work on Pakistan’s railways.

Similarly, the likes of Shireen Mazari and Fawad Chaudhry continue to meddle in affairs which simply do not concern them. Perhaps Imran should work a little harder on trying to delegate responsibilities to his cabinet.

Imran and his cabinet can devote as much time as they like for the Kashmir cause, but they need to fix Pakistan’s domestic issues on a priority basis, otherwise they will find themselves in a situation where public opinion at large will start to turn against them. Wasting time on symbolic acts like joining Defence Day and Independence Day with Kashmir Solidarity Day will benefit no one. The crisis in Kashmir should not take away from the issues plaguing Pakistan.

PM Imran needs to put Pakistan first. He can’t be shouting for help for his neighbour while his own house is on fire.

I agree with all of this. Imran has been a disaster for us.
