Meanwhile, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who is battling these crises, faced severe criticism this week as he was seen with his brother and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in London. Not only was it considered an abdication of responsibility at a crucial juncture, but the fact that he was going to London to discuss and seek advice, as reported, was interpreted by many as a sign that Shehbaz was merely a puppet Prime Minister, controlled from London. As if that was not enough, the puppet master was his own brother, inviting the family-rule charge against him too. Supporters of Imran Khan gathered outside the Sharif residence in London and made a scene there.
