Cash-starved Pakistan is getting a $3 billion bailout funding package from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the agency on Monday agreed to immediately disburse its final tranche. Islamabad is planning to ask for more funds from the IMF. Pakistan’s prominent right-wing Islamic leader also criticized the recently held general elections and said the establishment and bureaucracy have no role in elections and running the country. What kind of election is this where the losers are not satisfied and the winners are upset.

Drawing comparisons with India, Pakistani opposition leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman, in his inaugural speech in Parliament, said the neighboring country was striving to become a global superpower and Pakistan was heading towards bankruptcy. India and Pakistan got independence together in August 1947. Today, India is dreaming of becoming a global superpower while we are begging to avoid bankruptcy. Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Pakistan chief Fazlur Rehman asked fellow MPs who was responsible for this?

He also questioned the legitimacy of the current Parliament and accused its members of abandoning principles and selling out democracy, news agency ANI reported citing local media sources. Fazlur Rehman said that there are some powers behind the walls who are controlling us and they take decisions while we are just puppets. The opposition leader further said that governments are formed in palaces, and bureaucrats decide who will be the prime minister. How long will we continue to compromise? For how long will we continue to seek help from outside forces to get elected as lawmakers?
