PM Imran Khan Declared Best Politician Globally in Fight Against Covid-19

A UK-based monthly news magazine, ‘The Asian World’, has issued a list of 10 international leaders who fought hard to overcome the effect of the coronavirus pandemic, and Prime Minister Imran Khan is on top of the list.

Khan has been hailed as the best politician in the world for his prompt and somewhat different approach towards the global pandemic. At a time when the world leaders were rushing for a blanket lockdown, Khan took an exception and adopted the smart lockdown strategy to keep the balance between economy and health, and rightly so.

Unlike developed countries, PM Imran had to fight a two-front war. Besides saving his countrymen from the novel virus, he also had to look after 5 million people who live below the poverty line and rely on daily wages for bread and butter.

To minimize the impact of the lockdown, the government introduced a multibillion-dollar relief fund for the poverty-stricken faction of the society and provided Rs. 12,000 each among 20 million needy families. Besides, he introduced separate initiatives for laborers, daily wage workers, small-medium enterprises (SMEs), and those who lost jobs during the global health emergency.

And then he had a fragile economy on the verge of destruction. Thus, closing down the country wasn’t an option for Imran Khan. He opted for a smart lockdown strategy and used technology to identify the hotspots and sealed those areas instead of shutting down the entire country. The approach yielded results, and within a few months, Pakistan emerged victorious against the Covid-19 pandemic – which until June this year, seemed nearly impossible.

PM’s Special Assistant on Overseas Pakistanis, Syed Zulfi Bukhari, has also made it to the list. He was included for running a special flight operation to bring back tens of thousands of Pakistanis stranded abroad.

  • Plot twist: Asian World is owned by a British Pakistani who is running this magazine from Birmingham UK. His family is a die hard supporter of P_TI. It is an example of dirty journalism of the highest kind.

  • Where are those people who were criticizing Smart Lockdown and saying that Corona sleeps till 6 PM and starts working after 6 PM? A huge slap on the faces of those who criticized Khan for his corona control measures.
