The general public is troubled by the rising inflation in Pakistan. The prices of flour, oil, pulses, vegetables, gas, and diesel petrol are touching the sky. Because of this, the opposition presented a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan. Imran Khan was shocked. In this fury, Imran Khan addressed a public meeting in a rally organized in Punjab province on March 13. Gave such a speech that a joke is being made worldwide.
”Join politics for youth’syouth’s sake”: Imran
Imran Khan was addressing a rally in Hafizabad, Pakistani Punjab, on Sunday, March 13. During this, he shrugged off the rising inflation and said that he has not come to politics to know the price of potatoes and tomatoes.
Imran said the country would stand against those elements trying to topple his government by “using money to buy the conscience of [MLAs].” At the same time, Imran said that the sound changes that his government has made, their effect will soon be visible, and Pakistan is going to become a great country in his remaining tenure.
Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan, in his speech, said that 25 years ago, he had entered politics for the sake of the youth of Pakistan after joining politics as he did not get any personal benefit by doing so as he already had a career in life. It is everything a person dreams of. They said,
“I did not join politics to know the price of potatoes and tomatoes, and I had joined politics for the sake of the youth of the country. If we want to become a great country, we have to support the truth. And I have been teaching this for the last 25 years.”
Imran Khan addressed Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazli chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supremo Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) President Asif Ali Zardari.
Heavily criticized. Imran accused these leaders of saying that the people who kept silent on US drone attacks in Pakistan between 2008 and 2018 never raised their voice for the cause of Pakistan. Along with this, he said that those who are trying to remove him from his post would be buried under the burden of their conspiracy; they will see it all. During his speech, Imran also talked about developing Pakistan on the lines of princely-medina.
Opposition is upset with rising inflation.
Due to the rising inflation in the country, the opposition is questioning the governance of the Imran government. The prices of everyday items are also increasing exponentially. Not only this, but the foreign exchange reserves of Pakistan are also continuously falling.
The Imran government has already taken loans from many countries at very high rates to improve this. Also, Pakistan’s exports are significantly less while imports are very high. Now the eyes of the Government of Pakistan are on the gold of Pakistanis to increase the foreign exchange reserves.
The Government of Pakistan is considering borrowing gold biscuits and gold bars from its citizens. For all these reasons, the opposition is angry with Imran Khan. On Monday, March 14, many prominent opposition leaders will meet Shahbaz Sharif at his house. Shahbaz Sharif is the Leader of Opposition in the Pakistani Parliament. This meeting aims to become a strategy to make the no-confidence vote passed against Imran Khan more effective.
