By Dr Shahid Qureshi: –
Analyst saying: ‘the sudden appointment of IMF man Raza Baqir as Governor State Bank exposes the dire weakness of the state system and abundance of foreign agents and collaborators, who prepared this script and made it happen”. When one hires a cook or a guard one always asks for good positive references as cook can poison whole family and guard can join the thieves and loot all your wealth as well as get you killed. It is time someone goes to the supreme court of Pakistan and cancelled the appointment of this IMF financial terrorist in the state bank of Pakistan for about $6 billion-dollar loan. If there is any shame left in the country. It looks like an extreme intelligence failure or Imran Khan government lost the plot?
It is time for Imran Khan to shed off ASAP its evening activities ‘event managers’ and entertainment organisers as well as ‘gear suppliers’.
I saw the military spokesman Maj. Gen. Asif Ghafoor, speaking to the media and ‘warning the PTM for their anti-state activities, telling them how we are watching and breathing on your neck’. Excellent general everyone is proud of your efficiency and discipline and performance.
I am afraid in the presence of over 4500 foreign national senior civil servants and their anti-state col with foreign enemy agencies almost dilute all your efforts. PTM guys are mere foot soldiers and warned them with full might of the state but where is the state iron hand when it comes to Nawaz Sharif collaborations with Indian RAW, Maryam Nawaz’s role in Dawn Leaks’. Indian Agency Raw agents were arrested at Sharif’s sugar mills and offices. He has been meeting Sajan Jandal and Ambanis under your nose and still getting VIP treatment by courts and state.
It shows one thing that having a real power and illusion of being powerful are two different things. The politicians have tricked the armed forces by giving them the illusion of being ‘most powerful’ and getting over 6000 soldiers and officers killed thousands injured from Karachi to Gilgit following the Indian agenda of keep Pakistan bleeding. No?
If Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari behaved like this in Britain or anywhere else both would have been buried alive or floating face down in London’s River Thames. So kindly we would like Manzoor Pashteen, Maryam Nawaz, and Bilawal Zardri Bhutto treated equally for their anti-state activities, looting of national wealth and harming the state’s national interests.
Where is the iron hand for Asif Zardari’s role in ‘Memo Gate’ espionage against the Pakistan Army and issuance of thousands of visas to black water mercenaries, who killed officials and innocent civilians on the road. I think CIA asset Raymond Davies exposed them in his book ‘The Contractor’ very well.
It is time that all the high-level appointments go through the proper scrutiny and security checks by all the agencies and ministry of law as well as input from the Supreme Court of Pakistan. When you don’t hire cook without scrutiny and checks how can one appointment people with dodgy and divided loyalties as Governor State Bank of Pakistan?
