Only Shaukat Aziz can save Pakistan from economic maelstrom and IMF's clutches

Only one person – ex-PM Shaukat Aziz – can save the state from the economic maelstrom and IMF's clutches, senior journalists and analysts suggested during a discourse at 24NewsHD TV channel programme – DNA.

Salim Bokhari, Iftikhar Ahmad, PJ Mir and Javed Iqbal suggested Imran Khan should seek help from the former premier as in his tenure the dollar value could not rise above Rs60.

The government has failed to provide the people with inflation that has been running rampant since 2018 the year when the PTI came to power.

Iftikhar Ahmed said the hike in flour price resulted in raise in roti price while other foodstuffs too surged even at the Utility Stores. In such circumstances, increasing prices of petroleum products added to public woes 

Salim Bokhari said the governments across the world go for a mechanism to share such burdens so that their people can be provided with relief … but this government is making the masses bear additional burdens. 

The PTI government has been blaming the previous government for all the problems, he said, questioning its three-year performance. 

Iftikhar Ahmed said that the PM has been claiming to have announced a special relief package. He questioned if the premier bother to notice that how price-hike leaves small growers in big trouble.

Indian barbarism in Assam came into discussion during the programme. The senior journalists and analysts deplored the Dehli's cruelties against Muslims

Javed Iqbal called India a coward and recalled the incident of shooting down a fighter aircraft and handing its pilot Abhinandan over to Delhi.

Salim Bokhari said India is a cowardly enemy and his surgical strike against China exposed it 

PJ Mir said the Modi government in India is committing crimes. Salim Bokhari said the OIC has passed a resolution to boycott Indian products and the Pakistani authorities should follow the ban.
