Reacting to the leaked audio of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa finance ministers, senior analyst and anchor person Shahzeb Khanzada, Shaukat Tarin said that Tehreek-e-Insaf feels that their politics will suffer if political and economic stability comes to the country.
Commenting on Geo News, Shahzeb Khanzada said that Imran Khan had derailed the IMF program before entering the government, bringing the country closer to default. K’s relationship with you was at stake, they accused their speech of conspiracy, the organizations themselves said there was none. Conspiracy, despite not being able to provide any proof, they keep making this accusation again and again.
Shahzeb Khanzada said that Imran Khan himself hires an American PR firm to improve his party’s relations so that Tehreek-e-Insaf has a good image and their relations are better, but for this he risks the image of Pakistan. Hence, Khan compromised Pakistan’s economic and foreign policy.
He said political parties do many things to come to power, but doing so involves crossing all limits. You have gradually brought the country’s foreign and economic policy to a point where the country will default.
He said, if Mr. Khan comes to power tomorrow, he should think about what he will do to improve relations with America. You know how much influence America has in the IMF, FATF and various UN agencies, what the country has risked to come to power.
He said, senior leaders of the party should discuss what Khan sahib is doing. You have to have courage even if you don’t listen. But here it is seen that the opposite Ganga is flowing, instead of convincing His Excellency Imran Khan, they are convincing the ministers of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, where is the hope for improvement?
Shahzeb Khanzada said in his analysis that Asad Umar himself was defending it, though he had to explain to Imran Khan the difference between state and government. I remember when Imran Khan declared civil disobedience. Asad Umar said I don’t know. When Khan Sahib said this, he himself was surprised.
He said his direct intention was to inform the IMF about it, not to reinstate the program at the IMF board meeting. From this it can be understood that Tehreek-e-Insaf’s thinking will not benefit their politics if stability comes to the country. The more political and economic instability there is in the country and it will hurt the country if it moves towards anarchy. Because the IMF program will not recover, the country is close to bankruptcy, the flood situation is bad, tens of billions of dollars in losses, if they default, the country will be anarchy for God’s sake.
Shahzeb Khanzada said, if anarchy benefits Imran Khan, how can he rule such a country. Where have you proven that you have the power to rule? Do you have a great team? They need to think that sustainability benefits them as much as it benefits anyone else.
