Imran is out, but waits for review

Kochi: Yet another elected government is on its way out as some of the supporters have pulled the rug under the feet of premier Imran Khan of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

The move comes at a time when the country is in deep economic crises.
Imran Khan, 69, lost majority on Wednesday after the seven member Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P), decided to support the no confidence motion moved by the Opposition.

As Khan requires 172 votes in the lower house of 342 to continue in power, the Opposition claims to have the support of 175 members.

Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, chairman of the Pakistan Peoples Party said Imran had lost the majority.
Imran’s other ally, the Balochistan Awami Party, having five members in the lower house, is supporting the opposition.

The PTI has 155 members in theNationzal Assembly.
The Opposition has resolved to support a  government led by steel magnate Shahbaz Sharif of the Pakistan Muslim League-N who is the current Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly of Pakistan.

Brother of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, he has been Chief Minister of Punjab three times.
There are also reports of security agencies increasing security for Imran following threats to his life.

With different rumors like US intervention to topple the government, or reports like the military asking Imran to quit, the change of government in Pakistan is seen with anxiety in India.
The former cricketer who fetched Pakistan the World Cup, Imran Khan is considered to be friendly with India and is in sync with the BJP government.

Recently Imran Khan had praised India for its impressive growth due to political stability and blamed the previous political leaders for taking Pakistan backward.
