Former prime minister and PML-N central leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi Saturday said politicians have failed to drive the country out of the crisis, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Addressing a seminar titled “Re-Imagining Pakistan” held in Peshawar, Abbasi said that the upper and lower houses have been paralyzed. “The parliament is left only a platform for blaming each other instead of discussing people's problems.”

He lamented that the politicians are failing to run the country's system.

Abbasi added that he was talking about all political parties. He also said that the promises made at the time of the merger of Fata could not be implemented and its MNA is yet behind the bar.

Miftah Ismail addressing the seminar through a video link said Pakistan has been facing an economic crisis due to wrong policies. 

“86 percent of children in Pakistan are suffering from malnutrition and millions of children are forced to sleep without food, why should we call it an Islamic country, he asked. 

He said that people who were living below the poverty line should be provided relief. 

Miftah Ismail said that the country was going bankrupt and they saved it with a lot of effort. 

“The minimum wages of labourers should be increased from 25 thousand to 35 thousand,” Miftah added. 

He urged the media to support the government in the agreement that is being made with the IMF. 

Talking on the occasion, the estranged PPP leader Mustafa Nawaz Khokar said the standard of dialogue within Pakistan is inadequate. 

“The country is heading towards bankruptcy not only politically but also economically and socially,” Mustafa said.

He bemoaned that the people protesting peacefully in Gwadar, Balochistan have been arrested.

Khokar said the pro-India government has ended in Afghanistan, but terrorism has not ended in Pakistan. 

It is pertinent that a group of politicians is organizing a series of nationwide seminars on the current challenges being faced by the country with the support of its “friends and colleagues” in all political parties in an effort to develop a consensus on the future course of action required to be taken by all stakeholders to bring Pakistan out of the present mess.
