Suppose the entire opposition leadership is locked up in jails?

  • Let's assume that the entire opposition leadership is locked up in jails, decisions in corruption cases are against them all, no major opposition leader in the country holds a meeting or a press conference, only the government on all sides. Looks like
  • The 11-party alliance including PML-N, PPP, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam does not raise a single voice in favor of PDM. The PTI does what it wants. The opposition in the country is eliminated.
  • Suppose this is the case, will all the problems of the country be solved? Will inflation, inflation, budget deficit, circular debt and interest rates on loans end? No sensible person will admit that all the problems are due to the opposition, the problems already exist and will continue to exist until they are resolved.
  • Let's take a look at the rest of the world, there is opposition in India, even in a dictatorial country like Russia, there is a voice of opposition, in democratic countries where the government seems to be doing its job, the opposition also seems to be driving with full force.
  • Governments tolerate the anti-government activities of the opposition and at the same time govern in such a way that public issues are resolved. Try to come up with new public welfare schemes.
  • It is unfortunate that the government in Pakistan, instead of resolving every issue, has resorted to taunting the opposition. Time passes by but no progress is made towards resolving the issues.
  • Let's take a look at the two-year performance of this government and also see how far the opposition has hindered the performance of this government. The truth is that the opposition, apart from its speeches, has not been able to stop the government's legislation. When it brought distrust, the opposition lost despite a majority in the Senate and the government won. This clearly proves that the opposition except Nowhere did the vultures succeed in blocking the government's path.
  • If this is true, then how can the government use the opposition as an excuse not to show its performance and not to solve the problems?
  • The opposition has fixed December and January for the decisive steps of its protest movement. In these months there will be a meeting in Lahore and then the matter will move towards the Long March.
  • The government does not seem to have any strategy other than roundup. It is expected that talks will take place before the Long March.
  • It would have been better for the government and the opposition to negotiate without any pressure, but when the government is under pressure for a long march, it must be ready for negotiations.
  • Past experience has shown that the provincial governments do not stop the long march but let it go to Islamabad and then all the pressure falls on the establishment in Islamabad and Rawalpindi to send the assembly back home.
  • Therefore, there is a strong possibility that before the Long March, the Establishment will force the parties, the government and the opposition, to negotiate a grand national dialogue, because if the Long March really happens, then the pressure will be on the third party, not the government And the third party will not want to hold the same talks to end the political sit-ins after the religious sit-ins of Maulana Khadim Rizvi.
  • A majority of PTI supporters believe that the talks mean nothing more than an NRO for the opposition. This is a completely wrong idea, negotiations are based on transactions and some take and some take. I think the first point of the talks is to complete the five-year term of the government, as if the opposition will have to accept in the first phase of the talks that they will allow the PTI government to run for the remaining three years.
  • On the other hand, the government will have to make a proposal on legislation for the next elections to make the opposition realize that they too have a stake in the system and will be given a fair chance to participate in the next elections.
  • Inflation, unemployment and inflation have made people miserable. The only problem is that people's emotions have not yet reached the point of fermentation. Usually an unexpected event or accident provokes people. Governments should be afraid of this destination because when people's emotions reach a boiling point, then it becomes difficult to cool them down.
  • In general, this fermentation is cooled by the removal of the government. The PTI and Prime Minister Imran Khan are fortunate that the middle class is full of sentiments against them but the lower class is not so much against them.
  • The movement is usually started by the lower and oppressed classes and later joins the middle class. The downtrodden sections who had become politically helpless after the PPP's disappearance from Punjab liked the captain's voice of sympathy for the poor and this is the only politically positive signal for the PTI at the moment.
  • The sympathy of the middle class and corporate class for Imran Khan has waned but his appeal to the poor has increased. Imran Khan is still unpopular in the business middle class.
  • On the other hand, the tragedy of PML-N is that its supportive voters will vote for PML-N but it is not ready to go to the market for the party. He will softly praise the N-League era but Imran Khan will not be ready to close his shop for a day to end the era.
  • The PML-N voter wants to find a way to reconcile with the establishment of his leadership so that the PML-N can return to the horse of power. Despite the resistance statement, the choice is Nawaz Sharif.
  • He sympathizes with Shahbaz Sharif for the reconciliation statement but is not ready to leave Nawaz Sharif. Suppose all this remains the same, then the situation will not improve, it will remain bad.
