The political situation in Pakistan is changing rapidly. On the one hand, former Prime Minister Imran Khan is in danger of being disqualified for life due to controversial statements. On the other hand, allegations and counter allegations have started rising in the coalition government led by Shahbaz Sharif. Amidst all this, the absence of former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has raised doubts within the party and many MPs are openly speaking against the current PM Shehbaz Sharif and his cabinet.

Govt trying to get army chief of its own accord: Imran Khan
PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif is all set to make a comeback in the next two to three months. However, it will all depend on the appointment of the next Army Chief. In view of these equations, Imran Khan has alleged that the government brought by America is trying to get the army chief of its own free will.

In such a situation, the current army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa should be given extension till the new government is elected. On this, the government has hit back saying that according to the law in the country’s constitution, the Prime Minister of Pakistan has the right to appoint a new army chief and he is trying to make this appointment controversial in a systematic way. We will drag them to court on this issue.

Imran Khan alleged that the government was trying to get the army chief of its own accord.

Factionalism within the PML-N
Factionalism within the PML-N has intensified. Last month, when the government raised the price of petrol and diesel for the third time in less than a month, Maryam Nawaz vehemently protested. Several PML-N MPs have opened a front against the finance minister of their own party and Miftah Ismail, a close aide of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif.

Addressing separate press conferences with businessmen and industrialists, PML-N leaders Hanif Abbasi and Abid Shayar Ali (both close to Nawaz Sharif) have warned their own finance minister Mifta Ismail for their ‘anti-people’ policies .

He said that the Finance Ministry has imposed 11 taxes on electricity bills. The country’s economy cannot run on loot and loot only. This looting must stop. People of all walks of life are troubled by this. Even his driver got a bill of Rs 16,000 in July and August.

Maryam Nawaz strongly protested when the price of petrol and diesel was increased for the third time in less than a month.

Imran to launch anti-government campaign in late September
Imran Khan has announced to launch an anti-government campaign from the last week of September. Political analysts say that former PM Nawaz Sharif is seeking exemption in corruption cases, which were leveled against him during the Imran Khan era.

Pakistan’s political analyst Najam Sethi is of the opinion that the current government may dissolve the parliament-assemblies and call for fresh elections in mid-October. However, it all depends on the appointment of a new army chief. Bajwa’s term ends on November 29 and now, all eyes are on Rawalpindi, the country’s power hub, where another high-profile turnaround is expected later this year.
