Protest fever... By Yasser

The PTI and Imran Khan seem to have contracted a rapidly spreading disease – protest fever. These protests have a negative impact on the stock exchange metrics, the country's investment rating and foreign direct investment (FDI). Political and legal stability are two of the things investors look at when diverting their cash to high-return segments of the economy.
Pakistan has the potential to rapidly grow. Imran Khan should realise this and make calculated statements rather than shooting arrows in the air. Casual and careless comments about the wellbeing of the country should be replaced with positive reviews and a workable economic analysis. The PTI should cease all trivial disagreements and behave maturely by bringing relevant issues to the table rather than settling them on the streets.
