Imran Khan silent on building bridges with India
8/19/2018 11:53:23 PM
Will Imran Khan, who was sworn
in as Pakistan's Prime Minister, fulfill his commitment in freeing the country of various corruption case? This is a million dollar question after he made a commitment to liberate the country of looted wealth and announced that he would be able to bring back the looted wealth to Pakistan. Possibilities seem to be remote because the top Army functionaries have amassed wealth beyond their known means and they may not be willing to part away with their ill gotten wealth. He was sworin in by Pakistan President, Mamoon Hussain and this way Imran Khan , officially taking over the charge of power in the corruption-affected country nearly 22 years after the former cricket hero entered politics. Khan, 65, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), was administered the oath of office by President Mamnoon Hussain at a simple ceremony held at the Aiwan-e-Sadr (the President House) in Islamabad. The ceremony, which was scheduled to begin at 9.30 am, started late by 40 minutes. It commenced with the national anthem, followed by recitation of verses from the Holy Quran. Clad in a traditional greyish-black sherwani, a tearful Khan was seen a little nervous as he stumbled over some of the Urdu words of the oath administered to him. Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa, former Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu, cricketer-turned-commentator Rameez Raja and former paceman Wasim Akram were among the special guests present at the ceremony.
Khan, who famously captained the national cricket team to World Cup glory in 1992, had also invited some of his former teammates to witness his formal ascension to the top ministerial job in the country. Talking to state-run PTV, Sidhu recited couplets praising Khan.
"A new morning is here in Pakistan with a new government which can change destiny of the country," he said. He hoped that Khan's victory would be good for Pakistan-India peace. The Pakistan Army chief twice hugged Sidhu and both chatted briefly. After taking the oath, Khan and First Lady Bushra greeted guests. Later, Khan was presented a guard of honour at the Prime Minister House. Khan's oath ceremony marks the end of decades of rotating leadership between the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP)--the two main political parties that dominated Pakistan's political scene when the powerful military was not ruling the country. Khan, who described Pakistan's founder Mohammad Ali Jinnah as his hero, has promised to transform corruption-affected Pakistan into an Islamic welfare state. Yes he has talked about various welfare measures but silent on his relations with India. Will Khan attempt at resolving various issues through talks? This needs permission from the top functionaries of the Armed forces.
