๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฐ Pakistan: Can Imran Khan hold on? | The Stream

A wave of protests has erupted across Pakistan as people grapple with widespread unemployment, ongoing power cuts and rising food prices. The protests come at a time of political turmoil with allegations of a provincial police chief being kidnapped by the military and forced to sign an arrest warrant for a leading opposition figure.
ย 
Demonstrators led by the newly-formed Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) are calling for Prime Minister Imran Khan to step down, accusing him of falsifying the results of the 2018 election and overseeing a cabinet rife with corruption.

In this episode of The Stream, we ask: can Imran Khan resist the pressure?

    Xiena, Nida why they don't talk about how this present government inherited it. This both ladies are working for destabilizing Pakistan. Show any politician sacrifice 22 years of his life to fix a corrupt government. I.K is doing absolutely good. This false rally's are coming or supporting by this people right after the FATA conference. World is transparently looking at Pakistans resent gradual progress & diplomacy. At the same time others are trying to defame it.

    No one came on road due to economy. Just criminals and their cronies are demonstrating to save their stolen wealth.

    Aljazeera and people of Pakistan need to understand that IK and PTI have only been in power for only 18 months. PDM, or should I say Pakistan Demolishing Movement are those people that have been running the country for last 30 years. Need i say any more. PDM is a terrorist organisations and plz don't forget people that are coming out to these rally are being fed and paid to come out.

    Pakistan army is the mother of all evils all corruption in Pakistan. They are sucking blood of general public. No schools, not enough water, no electricity, food prices are rising because of their corrupt practices. All the political parties are on their bank roll it includes IK, NS as well. NS looted billions and fled the country on false claims.
