Imran khan speech 2018 - august-2018 First and foremost I want to thank each and every one of my workers, team members. Who joined me in this movement? There are two types of politics; one is for personal gain and one is as a mission to change people’s lives. I never looked at politics as a career. When I joined politics, I always saw it as my mission to make this country into a model welfare state. Our purpose was to make Pakistan an Islamic Welfare State on the principles of justice and equality. Today; I am remember all those people who are no longer with us today. Ahsan Rashid who lost his life battle to cancer, and Saloni Bokhari who was with us through this struggle. I present my salute and thanks to her. They supported me at a time when people used to make fun of us. Saloni Bokhari was there for us from the beginning. I think all the workers who stood with me in the toughest of times; when people at even their homes would make fun of them. I wouldn’t be here without you. First I want to put in front of the nation where we stand today, and where we can go from here. We have never had this kind of an economic crisis in our history. Today our debt stands at 28000 billion. In our history of 60 years our debt was 6000 billion. Uptil 2013 Our debt went up to 15000 billion and from 2013-2018 it reached 28000 billion. Just think; the debt of our entire history as a nation against where we are today, We will do a complete audit on where this money went. On top of it we will look into what level of interest we are paying on our loans and to pay that interest we are taking loans. The last year of the PPP government their annual foreign debt was 2 billion dollars. In this last year, we have had to take 2 billion dollars worth of loans every month. In 2013 60 billion dollars was our external debt. Today, that stands at 95 billion dollars. The pressure on the rupee is all because of this; because our foreign debt accelerated. I will also move to tell you we will solve this together; there is no need to worry... we can come out of this. The second thing I want to talk to you about is our human development index. According to a UNDP report; we are amongst those 5 countries where the majority of children die of dirty drinking water. Where a huge number of women die while giving birth. Unfortunately we are one of those few countries in the world where our children suffer from stunted growth; this affects their brains directly which are not able to develop fully. This is 45 percent of the children of Pakistan; meaning every second child is not getting proper nutrition. Because we are not giving them proper nutrition, their race in life, they are always left behind. They are never to keep up with peers. Imagine how their parent feels when they see their children like this.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
