Imran warns of Sri Lanka-like situation in Pakistan amid spiraling inflation

Imran Khan, the founder of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and a former prime minister, issued a warning on Wednesday about an impending financial crisis akin to Sri Lanka’s, predicting greater inflation and possible unrest among the populace.

Speaking to the media at the Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi, Khan denounced what he called the country’s continuous “deception,” calling the just completed general elections rigged and accusing institutional compromise.

He said that the country was being misled and dismissed security warnings as baseless.
“Entities have been destroyed. PTI was prohibited from running in elections. Even though they voiced their displeasure on election day, voters did not approve the change in their ballots.

They have crushed the hopes of the country by stealing the mandate,” Khan said.

He stated that his earlier predictions had come true and repeated his worries that Pakistan would see a situation similar to Sri Lanka, with soaring inflation and people of all ages suffering the most.

Khan made it clear that no agreements were being reached and that he was not even permitted to see his attorneys. He vowed to push the issue to the Supreme Court and to carry on nonviolent rallies against electoral fraud.

Khan also warned about potential fraud in the upcoming Senate elections, citing the example of Yousuf Raza Gilani’s son from the PPP, who was allegedly implicated in misconduct during the last Senate election but has not yet been prosecuted.
