Managing economy with unmanageable

We are facing the worst paradox of our history with stable economy and miserable poverty. Government is proud of its economic team as it was claimed during the era of economic expert Asad Umar. Graph of each economic zone is touching the sky but the poor are going under the ground. Where is ambiguity? Deliverance is being questioned.15 months period is enough for the previous government to be blamed. Now all thieves and  robbers are either in jail or flown away. White elephants have been nearly sold out.corruption is the story of past.

Foreign  funding  and IMF have filled our state bank reserves. No mega project has still been launched.Current deficiency is better than previous year.Where is then problem. Absence 10 million jobs, 5 million houses, devaluation of Pakistani currency, high dearness and mounting of petrol and electricity rates are the riddles still to be resolved for the common people having common sense.

Public is not interested in the obscure game of facts and figures. They are suffering and their miserable condition is getting worse to worst. Their ears not ready to listen the terrible slogan of ‘CHANGE’. New building on old foundation is not better than old building on old footings. People are searching for the fruits of change. The interpreters of government Shahzad Akber and Hammad Azher seem optimist and showing daily the strong figures of economy.Their press conference is about to come to end when people hear the bombastic news of increasing of electricity tariff. Where is issue?

Government high claims of achieving economic targets on one side, the pathetic condition of people on the other hand reveal something wrong at any side.Whether great expectations is the real tragedy or government is unable to handle the critical situation? Lack of team work,some sudden unexpected decisions,ministers’ behavior like opposition and much more is undermining the roots of country.


“Public is not interested in the obscure game of facts and figures. They are suffering and their miserable condition is getting worse to worst. Their ears not ready to listen the terrible slogan of ‘CHANGE’. New building on old foundation is not better than old building on old footings.”


Common public believe that the country is being run by some unseen mysterious forces.Where have gone those billions and trillions received from KSA, Qatar and IMF? It is the innocent question of those who dreamed a new Pakistan. Some people are crying for return of old Pakistan. Only hope of betterment in near future is the factor which does not allow them to be pessimist.

People wish to taste the fruit   immediately and over nights.Even the heart core supporters of PTI are on the horns of dilemma whether to continue supporting policies of IK in spite of consistent U turns or remain silent waiting the glowing period of PTI. It is perplexing for those who supported IK stance strongly and now see IK eating his own words. Claims of no debts no loans seem to be political statements.

Where should mass go? It is becoming harder and harder for them to keep the relation of body and soul.Their ideals are being broken before them.They were extremely disappointed by PMLN and PPP and considered Imran their liberator. But till now, nothing is for them to balm and sooth. They are shown daily the castles of flourishing economy but in reality they are living in blazing hell. They will have to accept the bitter reality that the country plunged into debts cannot easily and freely boost its economy. It is compelled to follow the lines draws by those powers which never allows to stabilize its economy. We can only live an honorable life when we will rely on our own resources and cut our unnecessary expenses. But at present it seems a dream of an insane.

    I protest to the statement that Corruption is the story of Past(Its just an official statement of IK Government to mislead our so called intellectuals). In recent regime corruption is at its peak.As a matter of fact it is more prevelant than the previous Governmnts.IK’s government is just a new wine in old bottle and vice versa.Economic team is not capable enough to envisage policies to provide relief to masses.Rather it seems Masses are being victimized. Price Hike has aggreviated the situation.If CHANGE was meant to burdenize the common people then Damn such Change!!!
