People Are Upset That Prime Minister Imran Khan Left For China While The Country Is In Trouble

By Rameeza Ahmad | 2 Nov, 2018

People are questioning Prime Minister Imran Khan and his priorities. 

 

As you all probably know, Prime Minister Imran Khan left last night for a 5 day official tour of China.

The purpose of the visit is to strengthen ties with China further and discuss the future of CPEC. However, the timing of the visit is less than desirable considering the perilous time Pakistan seems to be going through currently with the wide spread violent protests by a right-wing group.

 

And of course, people questioned (even mocked) Prime Minister Imran Khan for going on this trip since it did not even seem too important given the circumstances the country is in right now

 

They’re even digging up old tweets from Imran Khan when he was in the opposition and other leaders went on foreign visits while country was going through tense situations

 

The Prime Minister not being received by a higher Chinese official is another matter of ego for some

 

But a lot of people are genuinely upset that the Prime Minister left the country when everything currently seems so unstable and with the widespread reports of riots expected.

 

While Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and the government maintain that the Prime Minister is being updated with every single detail constantly and has only left because he knew things were in control

People still seem to be unhappy that Imran Khan is in China when he should be maintaining oversight directly on this entire sorry mess which has been created in the country since Aasia Bibi’s verdict.

But people were not satisfied with the explanation that this visit had been scheduled far in advance and was imperative for the country’s economic advancement. A lot of people still believe that Imran Khan should have postponed the visit and stayed within the country till things were sorted out.

Critics pointed out that while the trip had indeed been planned in advance and it would reflect badly on Pakistan to have postponed it, it should have been scheduled for a better time since the government should have expected these riots after the Aasia Bibi verdict.

Do you think Imran Khan’s visit to China should have been postponed? Let us know in the comments.
