Pakistan’s attempts on convincing the international community to accept their vote on Kashmir has turned the nation into a laughing stock as Google’s algorithm displays Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s image on searching the term ‘bhikari’ (beggar).
Only a week earlier, an onion seller took a dig at PM Khan for cutting ties with India leaving the nation’s poor citizens with no accessible stock that was being imported from India, DNA reports.
“Just 3-4 days are left for Eid and the market looks so dull. We depend on India for vegetables and onion, which is so essential to cook food on Eid. I am sure, the price of onion and all will increase further. What does Imran Khan want us to eat? Grass?”, the seller had commented.
Neighboring nation Pakistan depends on India for imports of essential food items, such as onion, tomatoes and chemicals. Cutting business ties with India would surely end up burning holes in the nation’s poor population’s population.
It may be noted that India had also revoked the MFN (most favoured nation) status to Pakistan in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack in February.
The Indian government had decided to suspend all cross-LoC trade with Pakistan after receiving reports that the routes were being used by elements in Pakistan to push weapons, narcotics and counterfeit currency into India in the month of April.
Former Pakistani Cricketer Imran Khan was elected as Pakistan’s Prime Minister last year for his promises to implement austerity measures amid the crumbling economy.
