When Imran Khan was sworn in as the Prime Minister of Pakistan in 2018, no one knew how much of a stir the emergence of a new party in the form of Tehreek-e-Insaaf could cause in the country’s politics, but what was to be happened, it happened.
As before, what has happened with the first democracies, the same thing happened with Imran Khan that he was not allowed to complete 5 years, but for the first time in the country’s history, an elected Prime Minister was sent home by bringing a no-confidence motion.
In response, Imran Khan made his members resign from the Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assemblies and then a front was opened against the current Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif under which either Shehbaz Sharif would have to go home or hold an election and provide a chance to Tehreek-e-Insaf to rise again.
The current government also responded to politics with politics and changed tactics in such a way that it has become difficult for PTI to maintain its existence. The Tehreek-e-Insaf has been under fire since the May 9 incidents and dozens of its members have announced to quit the party and politics.
Recently, a defected member Fayyazul Hasan Chauhan while speaking on a private TV program said that his agenda is not against Imran Khan but if Nawaz Sharif can go abroad then Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi can also be given a chance.
All the other members who left PTI earlier and one after another held a press conference, pick up the statements of all, try to understand the repeated arrests of the leaders till the time they left the party, then the current government’s strategy becomes clear.
It feels like the PTI has been walled off in a well-thought-out plan. Talks of banning the party are also going on and above all Imran Khan’s statement is also important that those who are leaving the party should not be criticized, because they are being forced to quit the party.
All the initiatives of the present government are apparently successful and now the formation of PTI Haqiji has also been announced. However, before eliminating a party, it is necessary to eliminate its ideology and thinking, and only time will tell whether Imran Khan’s ideology and thinking is over or survived.
Due to all this political tussle, the state of the country’s economy has destroyed to such an extent that there is no example of this in the last 75 years of the country’s history. It is better that the government awake and take steps to improve the economy.
