Imran’s maiden hundred (days)

Imran’s maiden hundred (days),” Rising Kashmir, 27 November 2018

Hundred days is too short a period to evaluate any government. However, the world over, the first hundred days of any government generates certain interest. In Imran Khan’s case, it is even more, as he completes the first 100 days in power.

 Is Imran on track regarding what he has promised? Alternatively, are there likely to be more “U-turns” for which he is severely criticised inside Pakistan?

 One could identify the following six issues as major areas of concern during Imran’s first hundred days: economic situation and the dialogue with the International Monetary Fund (IMF); AasiyaBibi and the political rise of the TLP; Imran’s visits to Saudi Arabia and China; Pakistan’s relations with the US and India; resumption of terrorist attacks; and stabilizing civil-military relations.
