Politics of Pakistan: How to fight Imran Khan, Nawaz Sharif gave his gurumantra!

Pakistan Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif and senior ministers of his government who went to London with him were given a guru by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to counter Imran Khan's campaign. In particular, he guided them on how to deal with the proposed 'Islamabad march' of Imran Khan's party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). Nawaz Sharif is the elder brother of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif. Shahbaz Sharif had gone to London to meet him along with a team of senior ministers.



Pakistan's Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah briefed Pakistani journalists accompanying the Prime Minister's team about the meeting with Nawaz Sharif. He told- 'Mian Nawaz Sharif guided us about the chaos and gathering of people in Islamabad. But since we have a coalition government, we will take up the matter with the cabinet. We will not allow those people to come to Islamabad. Far from talking about 20 lakh people, we will not allow even 20 people to reach there.


Former Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that any day after the 20th of this month, he will appeal to his supporters to travel to Islamabad. Imran Khan is demanding to hold elections in the country immediately. The proposed program is meant to emphasize this demand. According to observers, it is clear from the statement of Home Minister Sanaullah that this proposed program of Imran Khan has shaken the ruling coalition. In view of the massive support that Imran Khan is getting, the government is taking his claim of bringing two million people to Islamabad seriously. There are indications that Nawaz Sharif has advised the government to take a tough stand on the issue. But this is expected to escalate the conflict.

To a question whether Imran Khan would be arrested, Sanaullah said that all legal requirements will be met. If the need for arrest is felt, it will also be done. The Home Minister also addressed a meeting of the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPA), the Public Relations Department of the Army, on Thursday. After this, the ISPR again issued a statement condemning the comments being made to defame the army. 

It is understood that on the advice of Nawaz Sharif, the Home Minister decided to hold a meeting with the ISPR. The motive behind this is to get the army's support in meeting the political challenges constantly being faced by PTI. Sanaullah also tried to heal the sentiments of other institutions in this meeting. Significantly, PTI is constantly raising questions on the stand of the judiciary and the Election Commission. Sanaullah said- 'We have always been inspired by the attitude of the judiciary and other institutions to stay away from politics. The comments being made against these institutions are wrong. We will protect these institutions.

Do you know these things about Anthony Albanese who defeated Scott Morrison? Many challenges will be faced as Prime Minister

Australian voters have pushed for an end to nine years of Liberal rule in favor of a centre-left opposition that has promised strong action on climate change. To form a majority government, parties need a majority of 76 seats. The Labor Party's Anthony Albanese, who won the election, will now be the new Prime Minister of Australia. After the election results were out, Morrison said he would resign as leader of the Liberal Party. He said that he takes responsibility for his party's defeat. The Labor Party currently holds 73 seats, according to the Australian Electoral Commission. Early vote counts showed a strong bias toward Greens candidates and independents, who sought emissions cuts far beyond commitments made by Morrison's coalition.

Who is  Anthony  Albanese 

Albanese is one of Australia's longest-serving politicians and was briefly deputy prime minister under Kevin Rudd in 2013. He has earned a reputation as a defender of free healthcare, an advocate of LGBT rights, a Republican and a diehard rugby league fan. Albanese, 59, had a childhood spent by a single mother with the help of a disability pension. At the age of just 33, he reached Parliament in 1996 by winning the Sydney seat on a Labor Party ticket. In 2007, when Kevin Rudd's Labor Party came to power, Albanese was made Minister of Infrastructure and Transport. Due to internal strife in the party, the Prime Minister was changed and Anthony Albanese became Deputy Prime Minister. But his tenure as Deputy PM lasted only 10 weeks. His party lost in the next election.

 Challenges ahead for Albanese as Prime Minister?

One of Albanese's first priorities as prime minister will be to rebuild relations with foreign leaders, who Morrison says has neglected foreign policy in recent years. China recently signed a military agreement with the Solomon Islands near Australia, China is planning to build its first military base in the Pacific. On Tuesday, Albanians are expected to be in Tokyo for talks with quad members from the United States, India and Japan, where they will discuss priorities for safeguarding free passage in the Indo-Pacific. Voters have turned to the Labor Party over the Liberal Party's inaction on climate change. Marija Taflaga, director of the Australian Politics Study Center at the Australian National University, noted the vote's shift to the Greens.
