Antidote for conspiracy narrative

How to move the country forward

Pakistan’s political and governmental situation is extremely tense and complex and is moving from distrust to intolerance. After leaving the government, Imran Khan has been playing his innings with great fervour. Mian Nawaz Sharif also launched a similar campaign after ousting the government, but it soon died. However, Imran Khan is still not only maintaining his tempo, but also increasing its intensity day by day, and he is gaining popularity because the ruling coalition has no future strategy and no action is being shown. The government has not been able to provide any relief to the people as soon as it arrives and the economic situation has not been brought under control. In this situation, Imran Khan’s conspiratorial statement is very popular among the people and no one has any nostrum about this statement.

There is no doubt that the PML(N) soon realized that the hasty decision was wrong, although the PML(N) is a party that has been in the forefront in overthrowing the PTI government but now Vice President Maryam Nawaz is asking in jalsas that why should the PML(N) government carry the burden of Imran Khan’s failure on its shoulders? If matters have reached this stage in just a few days, then the nation should also be told why the PTI government was ousted despite the incomplete homework. The PML(N) leadership has been discriminated against in the past over the removal of the PTI government and is still discriminated against in terms of holding immediate elections. The PML(N) leadership has not been able to decide whether to go to the polls or remain in the government while facing political and economic crises. The government is stuck in a whirlpool with no way out.

At the moment, the government has no other option than to hold elections, but the ruling coalition knows full well that if they go to the polls, Imran Khan will be victorious. That is why everyone is running in the world of despair. Someone in this race should have asked it why they had taken such a step when they could not manage it. It does not have the answer to this question nor is it giving any option to the actors sitting behind, as they are also being warned periodically.

If we have to impose curfew in Pakistan like Sri Lanka tomorrow, then why don’t we use the power of the state today? The tide is flowing over the bank. The need of the hour is to open the eyes and get out of the rhetoric of interfering in politics, break the conspiracy rhetoric, declare elections and move the country from political stability to economic stability. This is supposed to be good for the country and the nation.

In fact, the political leadership and the people are not taking any notice of such things. The political and economic situation of the country is deteriorating day by day, while the government and the authorities seem to be failing in timely decision making.

Even in this chaotic situation, it is gratifying that our situation has not yet become like that of Sri Lanka. The whole world has seen the tragedy that was broadcast there from the Prime Minister to the members of Parliament. It is fortunate our situation has not reached this stage but if we glance at the movements of the political leadership, it seems that every effort is being made to create a situation here similar to Sri Lanka’s, while the authorities are silent spectators.

The attempts to spread chaos in Sialkot once failed, but next time it may not be thwarted. The sentiments of the people are furious over the conspiratorial rhetoric. One wrong decision of the government can serve as a fuel for a blazing fire. Once the fire ignites, it will not be possible to put out this fire.

There is no denying the fact that it is too late, but it is not too late to get out of the situation of silent spectators and the situation cannot be handled. People have been stating for decades that this political game can be very cumbersome, so it should be stopped. If someone has made a mistake, he should not hesitate to correct it. Elections should be announced immediately and the words of the tested people should not be heard. If we keep on listening to the same phrases again then the nation will go towards further destruction, but who will think so and where will we get the courage from? Conspiracies have been going on in this country before and are happening again this time. Everyone knows this, but no one will open their mouths, because while opening their mouths, everyone gets furious.

This is not the time for rhetoric, this is the time to get the country out of the crisis it is facing. The authorities should bring all the stakeholders together and these people should not be allowed to disband until they reach a consensus, even if it takes a few weeks. If the politicians do not come together then the state should use its full writ.
