Imran Khan, who lost his prime ministership in a no-confidence vote in parliament, is talking about a foreign conspiracy. His allegations are reminiscent of Tipu Sultan and Nawab Siraj ud-Daulah, two figures in the history of the subcontinent.

They were both patriots. He fought against Western conspiracies till the end of his life. If Imran Khan can’t get around quickly in politics, many may start comparing him to Tipu Sultan or Siraj. Imran Khan has been ousted on charges of creating economic woes in the country and violating the constitution. At one point he was able to crack down on political opponents quite harshly. It was then thought that it would be difficult for Imran Khan’s opponents to turn around. But in reality the opposite has happened. Opposition groups called for a boycott of the assembly. He has been thrown out of the center of power. any sector of the country. However, before coming to power, he announced to rid the country of corruption. In fact, during his tenure, the power of the three pillars of the state – the law, the judiciary and the executive – has been greatly diminished. So the next prime minister of Pakistan after Imran Khan will have to face many more challenges. Especially in the economic field.

Imran came to power with the slogan of change. But during his tenure Pakistan’s economy was not in a very good condition. The economic mismanagement of the Imran government has made millions of Pakistanis poor. In the year 2017 when Imran came to power, the total domestic production of Pakistan was 31.5 billion dollars. In 2022, it has come down to 29.2 billion dollars. At that time, as promised by Imran, Pakistan did not become Norway or Denmark. On the contrary, the per capita GDP of Pakistanis is lower than that of Bangladeshis.
