Pakistan economic crisis: The increasing inflation has badly affected the entire Pakistan including its Army. According to country’s top military source, the food supply chain in the soldiers’ mess has been affected due to the rising inflation.
Army unable to feed soldiers two times properly
The issue has reached general headquarters in Rawal Pindi as several field commanders have complained at the Quarter Master General (QMG). The source said the army is not able to feed soldiers “two times properly” amid rising inflation and cut in special funds. “We have already cut the soldiers’ food fund, which was doubled and approved by General Raheel Sharif during the Operation Zarb-e-Azb in 2014,” the source added. It said that the increase in price of groceries and meat have made the Army cut in logistics and supplies.
‘Inflation to rise in coming days’
According to a Bloomberg report, several biggest companies in the crisis-hit country have stalled operations as they ran out of raw materials.
There is no sight of relief for the country as Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday admitted that there will be more inflation. Citing the reason for inflation, the Pak PM said that IMF has reduced some subsidies, and asked to facilitate the poor only.
“Time is calling for us to adopt restraint, simplicity and sacrifice,” he said while addressing the meeting.
He stressed that “everyone including the ministers, advisers and bureaucrats will have to be part of the austerity campaign,” adding that the government “has tried its best to fulfil its duty”.
“Instead of looking back,” he said, “we must renew our resolve to move forward today”.
