The present measures taken by the government to provide relief to the general public has given birth to a new debate. The supporters of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf and Imran Khan believe that this change has emerged because of their Dharna. Many of the experts and political analysts like Hassan Nisar also believe that the Dharna has forced Nawaz Sharif led government to provide the nation with petroleum price reduction and similar relief. This video shows what Hassan Nisar thinks of the steps the government of Pakistan has taken and how much has the Dharna of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) has contributed in it.
The Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI)’s rivalry is not hidden from anyone. PTI claims that they have brought the change in the system by forcing the government to meet their demands. On this basis they justify their stance of continuing with the Dharna in Islamabad. The leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf, Imran Khan believes that a chance in the system can only come with persistence. The Dharna is the only legal way to record their protest and ask the government to fulfill their demands.
On the contrary, there are many journalists and analysts who believe that government’s decision to reduce prices has nothing to with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Dharna and it is followed by the international decline in the petroleum prices. No one knows what the truth is. One thing for sure is that now that Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) has emerged as a competent party, every move of the government is evaluated under that lens. Instead of seeing it as an initiative, each move of the government is taken as a measure to counter the rising popularity of Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) amongst the masses.
Watch this video to know the views of Hassan Nisar on this issue. His views seems tilted towards Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI).
