Why is Chandrayaan-3 being discussed in Pakistan’s Parliament?

The issue of deteriorating condition of Pakistan’s economy was once again raised in the country’s Parliament on Wednesday (May 15). Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) party MP Syed Mustafa Kamal mentioned the moon mission Chandrayaan-3 while comparing Karachi with India.

Syed Mustafa Kamal said that India has reached the moon and the condition of Karachi is such that children are dying after falling into the open gutters here. He said that in Karachi city with a population of 23 crores, there is not even clean drinking water for the people. 

He said, ‘When the news of Chandrayaan-3 was being played on our TV screens that India has reached the moon, then after two seconds the news flashes that a child in Karachi died after falling into the gutter.’

< p style="text-align: justify;">Syed Mustafa Kamal further said that Karachi is one of the prosperous cities of Pakistan and people here do not even have clean water to drink. He said, ‘Since the establishment of Pakistan, there are two ports here, this city is the entry gate of Pakistan. Still there is no clean water here for 15 years. Whatever water comes, the tanker mafia collects it.’

Kamal also mentioned the condition of schools in Pakistan along with the water problem. He said that there are 48,000 schools in Pakistan, out of which no information is known about 11,000 schools. He said, ‘About 70 lakh children are not going to school in Sindh and this figure is 2.62 crore in the entire country. Our leaders should lose sleep after knowing this.’

His statement has come at a time when  Just a few days ago, senior Pakistani leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman had raised the issue of economic disparities between India and Pakistan in the Parliament. He had said that on one hand India is dreaming of becoming a superpower and on the other hand we are begging to avoid bankruptcy.
