Quitting with grace!

"The best course for Imran Khan is to make his farewell address to the nation. The historic address should be guided by a written speech; we have had enough of repeated speeches. The address should start with the announcement of his resignation"

Without a shadow of a doubt, one can say that time is up for Imran Khan, the prime minister of Pakistan. But he has vowed to fight till the last ball of the match – meaning till the result of the no-confidence motion against him, he will stick to the office. Given the situation when almost all of his allies, barring the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid, and over a dozen of his own party people have left him, the number game is not on his side. This situation is only adding sleeplessness to his nights. The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf should do some introspection and attempt to live to fight another day.

The best course for Imran Khan is to make his farewell address to the nation.

When? The most appropriate time is – NOW. The earlier, the better. This will be a history-making moment.

The historic address should be guided by a written speech; we have had enough of repeated speeches.

The address should start with the announcement of his resignation.

Later on, the prime minister should detail the challenges which his government faced during its three-and-a-half-year tenure. It should be followed by the glorious achievements of the government. There should be no exaggeration. The final part of the speech should focus on the mistakes – political and governmental – he committed. He should offer an apology for name calling and often resorting to high-handedness towards his opponents. He should tell the nation that since he was the first-timer in the government, and lacked the required number in the National Assembly, he failed to do what he wanted to do.

He should thank his party workers and leaders for standing by him. He should also speak something positive for those who ditched him in troubling times.

He should conclude the 15-minute address by offering best wishes and his cooperation to the successor.

Long Live Pakistan!

Meet the former prime minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan.

For the next few months, Imran Khan will be on a world tour, lecturing on Islamophobia, the westernization of the world, and the problems of the Ummah.

Meanwhile, back at home, the coalition government, facing the onslaught of the international inflation trends is on the brink of a breakup. The absence of Imran Khan will never sink the PTI into oblivion. His last speech will reimagine, regroup and strengthen the party.

Once new elections are announced, Imran Khan should be back in Pakistan and start yet another electoral inning.

The new Imran Khan now talks of political consensus, a powerful judicial system to defeat corruption and reforms for all government sectors.

At last, Chief Minister Usman Buzdar is going to resign from the provincial chief executive office. He has presented his resignation to his party chief Imran Khan. If the resignation letter is sent to the Punjab governor, the formality will be met.

His exit is neither abrupt nor planned. In fact, circumstances arising out of the no-confidence motion against the prime minister, and later a similar move against himself as well set the stage ready for his resignation. The party needed the precious support of the PML-Q, and Buzdar knew it. Also, several breakaway factions emerged in the PTI, and their single-point agenda was to remove Buzdar.

After spending three and a half years in the Chief Minister House, Buzdar is leaving the house after defeating journalistic speculations aimed at him. He survived the deadlines given by several ‘seasoned’ journalists about his ouster.
