    this is true. no one else is presenting it as anything other than that.

    the money is to manage working capital deficits, because previous governments have left huge debt repayment deadlines with no income to pay them with. its not complicated.

    a responsible government would avoid default by any means necessary, by scraping together money to pay down that immediate and urgent debt demand - which is what this government has been and is doing - whilst trying to fix the structural deficiencies in the economy preventing it from generating revenue, so that in the future the working capital needs of the country can be met by self generation, rather than borrowing from Peter to pay Paul, which is what Zardari and Nawaz specialised in, leaving it to future generations to suffer the pressure cooker explosion they began.

    the current government is trying to fix these structural deficiencies by cutting excess costs of the executive, investing in human capital for economic productivity, by restructuring export industries to make them more competitive and sophisticated, and by controlling imports by allowing the inevitable currency weakness built up from the failure of economic policies of the predecessor government.

    to explain this briefly - the previous governments artificially kept the rupee strong, which had the effect of damaging the export industry whilst artificially keeping input costs to the consumer (eg energy) low - essentially borrowing from abroad, and ramping up the debt to pay the average person, in order to bribe them for votes, knowing they would never be able to pay that money back, but wouldn't need to because it would be the next governments problem. (and all the while steal millions and billions in kickbacks from pointless and unproductive infrastructure programmes.)

    This is the reason that the IMF is insisting on devaluation, artificially holding the currency up is unsustainable, destroys the economy and ultimately the people suffer with inflation when exports do not sustain debt repayment, which is exactly what happened.

    thats essentially an exact snap shot of the full picture.

    of course its no wonder that people like Bilawal, with no history of any political or economic experience and the recipient of looted wealth cleansed conveniently by inheritance, are critiquing these economic corrective measures which have been a result of previous governments, including his own governments, and which are necessary in order for Pakistan to grow. he is a true enemy of the state and the people of pakistan.

    Pepsi and Coca Cola pouring $1.4 billion into Pakistan - government

    Pepsi and Coca-Cola are set to invest $1.4 billion in Pakistan in coming years, a statement from Prime Minister Imran Khan’s office said, after executives from the two companies met with Khan.

    Pepsi planned to make “a further investment of $1.2 billion” in next five years, Khan’s office said on Wednesday, after the company’s chief executive for Asia, Middle East and North Africa, Mike Spanos, led a Pepsi delegation that met Khan.

    Coca-Cola, which has a $500 million business already in Pakistan, also pledged a planned $200m investment in the coming two to three years, Khan’s office added in a separate statement on Tuesday.

    Over Rs500m transferred from Dar's account to Punjab govt

    The district authorities in Punjab have transferred over Rs500 million from former finance minister Ishaq Dar’s accounts to the provincial government, Express News reported.

    The move comes on the directives issued by an accountability court in Islamabad ordering authorities to auction movable and immovable assets of the former finance minister and seize his bank accounts. Dar, accused in assets beyond income case, was declared a proclaimed offender after he failed to appear before the court despite repeated summons.

    It is pertinent to note that the accountability court had ruled in a petition filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) seeking the sale of Dar’s assets and asking the court to appoint a ‘receiver’ who would collect and deposit the amount in the state treasury.

    I would say its average- satisfactory after 100 days.

    There is no major corruption scandal, Economic situation is getting better and above all this government has presented themselves for check and accountability as in case of performance appraisal after 100 days.. before, it was a kingdom no performance appraisal or accountability.

    Apparently this notion of first 100 days performance, appraisal or accountability has started by this Gov for very first time in history of the country, and yet people are bashing them. A sorry state of affairs.

    You cant make everyone happy and everyone has their own agenda but most neutrals think that the government is on right path.. biggest issue is the team but lets see.

    But i have firm belief that Pakistan will be in a much better position in every aspect after 5 years.

    superb work for peace by the current government with the opening of Kartarpur.

    stupid comments by SMQ the FM in taunting India about it though, they already look terribly embarrassed by being unable to reciprocate the peaceful overtures from Pakistan.

    Pakistan set to gift 40,000 metric tons of wheat to Afghanistan

    ISLAMABAD: The Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) on Friday accorded an approval to gift 40,000 metric tons of wheat to Afghanistan.

    Finance Minister Asad Umar chaired a meeting of the ECC which agreed to gift wheat worth Rs1.73 billion to Afghanistan.

    The ECC also approved the release of funds to the Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund (PPAF) for the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP).

    Following the ECC’s decision, $82.6 million will be released for the 320,000 BISP card holders.

    What is this nonsense, they are spreading terrorism in our country and we're gifting them free wheat - what the F... This better be explained by govt. in detail, how it works, why it is happening again and again and it must be audited as well.

    People of Pakistan, specially in Thar, FATA & Baluchistan etc needs it more than these Afghan douchebags, let them starve.

    If terrorism ceases to exist then the Pak Army cannot justify looting their country's resources. They cannot justify a significant portion of Pakistan's budget to be allocated to them despite the country being neck deep in debt.

    Similarly their "Kashmir fund" and other related perks disappear if the Kashmir issue gets resolved.

    The entire world sees this except for gullable Pakistani awaam. There is a reason why negligible funds are marked to be spent on education every year - if every citizen gets access to education then they will start asking questions.

    if the Indians weren't behind continual attacks within pakistan, perhaps there wouldnt be need a for a military budget, a fifth of the Indian defence budget as it happens.

    and if the indian awam werent so gullible at the kickbacks their politicians get from arms dealing with desault and similar arms firms, perhaps they wouldnt have to use their streets as toilets and could build enough WCs for their people. the whole world knows how they are looting their defence contracts, except for gullible indians it seems.

    https://economictimes.indiatimes.co...ls-neighbours-intent/articleshow/63966279.cms

    perhaps whilst theyre at it, instead of spending $45bn on defence, the indian government should not only build more toilets but educate their people on how to use them:

    https://www.hindustantimes.com/indi...veals-study/story-ShATZA91iSn7sIBzfqVN0O.html

    mind you, when they are ruled by a genocidal, corrupt, arms dealing fascist, no wonder they look across the border to distract their bovine, short attention span, dim population from seeing what is being done to them. I feel sorry for hem.

    What this hogwash has to do is response of Pakistan's wheat to Afghanistan?

    It has been revealed over and over again that NDS and RAW are aiding and funding terrorist in Pakistan. Good luck defending it.

    As usual you and your desperate attempts to gibe on Pakistan and its army - of course people like you to see Pakistan Army no different than Mymayar.

    PTI minister Azam Swati resigns 'to uphold moral authority'

    "To uphold my moral authority, I sent my resignation to the PM [and told him] that I cannot work under these conditions," Swati said.

    "Now I will defend my case without any portfolio or authority."

    Swati, a member of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), is currently facing a case in the Supreme Court over accusation that he had influenced the transfer of former Islamabad Inspector General of Police Jan Mohammad.
