Amidst international embarrassment on Kashmir issue and economic crisis back home, Imran Khan government in Pakistan likely to collapse

While Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has been busy bickering and whining like a toddler over Kashmir, his already cash-strapped country has been slipping further into a deeper economic crisis.

Leave alone India, even Pakistan is not being able to place confidence in its own Prime Minister and his government. As per reports Khan may have to struggle to keep Pakistan’s reigns in his hands.

It is no secret that Pakistan has been snubbed by the international community as he tried to garner support against India’s decision to abrogate Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir. In fact, he himself has admitted to this failure. His failure in entrapping India and the International forum with his false narratives over India’s decision to abrogate Article 370 in Kashmir has fetched the Pakistani Prime Minister severe backlash in his own country.

A day after the terrorist state of Pakistan attempted to interfere in India’s affairs by protesting against the historic decision of the Narendra Modi government’s decision on Article 370, Pakistan’s own minority leader Nadeem Nusrat lashed at Imran Khan saying that Pakistan must first provide the same rights to all ethnic minorities in its own territory before speaking on behalf of Kashmiris.

Moreover, local residents belonging to various regions of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK), including Tatta Pani, Rawalakot, Poonch, Hajira, and Tatrinote today raised slogans in protest against the illegal occupation and atrocities meted out by the Pakistani Army near the Line of Control (LoC) with India.

Likewise, Pakistani minorities launched massive protests in New York ahead of Imran Khan’s UNGA speech. “Atrocities are being committed against Mohajirs, it has been going on for decades, we have lost more than 25,000 lives and there have been thousands of forced disappearances. We want to apprise the world of our situation caused by Pakistan,” said Mohajir leader and Karachi’s former Mayor Wasay Jalil.

Even as Pakistan struggles to save itself from embarrassment over Kashmir, Imran Khan’s government also has severe economic crisis back home to take care of. While Imran Khan keeps himself busy portraying to be the ‘ambassador of Kashmir’, his Naya Pakistan is in a war with itself. It is dealing with its debt-ridden economy.

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.

Pakistan is in desperate straits as economists’ predict its economy is on the brink of collapse. Its impoverished condition is, in fact, no laughing matter. The ‘Trade and Development Report 2019’ released by the United Nations on Thursday has also said that Pakistan’s economic crisis has not been resolved despite the fact that support from China and Saudi Arabia and a large IMF loan have helped address the immediate problem.

In a brief comment on Pakistan in the Asia section, UNCTAD’s annual flagship report went on to say that “Pakistan is in the midst of a crisis” as the growth rate has halved, the balance of payments is in poor shape, the rupee has depreciated significantly and external debt is large and rising.

While Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has been busy bickering and whining like a toddler over Kashmir, his already cash-strapped country has been slipping further into a deeper economic crisis. The beggar country has been crying over the rising price of ‘roti’ and ‘naan’, tomatoes and milk. If things continue this way, the day is not far when the Google search engine’s controversy which throws up images of Imran Khan when one searches for “bikhari”- a Hindi word that means “Beggar”, might just change into a crude reality.

Nevertheless, for a country which needs to hold cabinet meetings to discuss increasing prices of Rotis and Naan, threatening India with nuclear war, not once but thrice since India has repealed Article 370 in the Valley on August 5, is too funny for words!
