Dark days ahead for Pakistan as power supply to Imran Khan’s office snapped for non-payment of dues

Imran Khan's Secretariat currently owes over 41 lakh rupees to IESCO. For the previous month, this amount was 35 lakh rupees

The electricity supply to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Secretariat faces disconnection over non-payment of bills running into crores of rupees. The Islamabad’s Electric Supply Company (IESCO) issued a notice to this effect on Wednesday.

For a country which threatens India with a nuclear war every other day, Pakistan ought to fix itself first before it decides to poke its nose in India’s internal matter. Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan seems to have buried himself so much in conspiring against India, that he has overlooked his internal problems.

According to reports, Imran Khan’s Secretariat currently owes over 41 lakh rupees to IESCO. For the previous month, this amount was 35 lakh rupees. IESCO source revealed that the Secretariat has failed to pay the dues in spite of several reminder notices. “This is a recurrent problem with the Secretariat. We will cut off the power supply if dues are not paid, said the IESCO source.

The cash-strapped nation is currently grappling with the worst financial crisis in its history. The recently published World Bank report, which had retained its projection of India’s growth at 7.5% per annum for the next three fiscal years had predicted the growth of South Asia countries except for Pakistan, whose growth it is set to drop at 2.7% in the FY19-20.

Such is the gravity of the economic crisis in Pakistan that on the occasion of Eid, PM appealed to the people of Pakistan to stand united and help overcome the dire economic situation.

Since the time of his election as Pakistan Prime Minister, Khan has been negotiating with world leaders to winkle out bail packages and temporarily assuage the looming economic disaster without much help. A conducive environment for terrorism to spawn and flourish has also added to the woes of Pakistan as investors have remained away from the terror-prone country.

It is laughable, however, that an impoverished economy, which is on the brink of collapse, a nation where high-level cabinet meetings are kept to discuss the increasing prices of ‘Naan’ and ‘Roti’, which banks on its supply of ‘donkeys’ to run the economy and moreover, manages to do without power supply over non-payment of dues, is planning to invoke a full-fledged nuclear war against India.
