Washington: PTI When Imran Khan became Prime Minister last year, he had talked about making Pakistan a new Pakistan, but his statement has so far proved to be air and air and he is working as a puppet of the army. This has been revealed in a US report. According to this report, during the tenure of Imran Khan, the Pakistani army is effectively intervening on foreign and security policies.
The manipulation of domestic politics to remove Sharif from power has been prepared by the Congressional Research Service (CRS). It is designed for US lawmakers. It added that Khan had no experience of running the government before winning his current office. Analysts believe that Pakistan’s security agency manipulated domestic politics to remove Nawaz Sharif from power. Because of this, Imran Khan became the Prime Minister.
Impact of the Army on Foreign and Security Policies
This report also said that Imran’s vision of ‘New Pakistan’ has been derailed by the financial crisis. This vision is for better education and health care and to make the country corruption-free. Most analysts believe that the Pakistani military continues to influence foreign and security policies. The CRS is an independent research wing of the US Congress, which periodically produces reports on a range of issues for lawmakers.
The military-judiciary colluded in the CRS said that many analysts believe that Pakistan’s security agency manipulated domestic politics before and during the elections to remove Nawaz Sharif from power and weaken his party. This report also said that the army-judiciary allegedly colluded to support Imran Khan’s party. Democratic norms were also violated during the election.
