For Pakistan, its problems don’t seem to be anywhere near its end. The economic crisis the country is battling…is showing no signs of improving. Infact, it is worsening with almost each passing day. Just yesterday, Pakistan's currency fell to a record low of ₹ 255 against the US dollar…and now, it has forex reserves just enough for 3 weeks at max. Recently, the central bank increased its benchmark interest rate to 17%...the highest in over 24 years ! And these unending strings of issues are coming when its economy is struggling to cope with mounting debt, global inflation and political instability, and has been pushed to the brink of a collapse.

Pakistan’s economy seems to be on the verge of crashing. The economic issues especially the fuel crisis that the country has been facing appear to be finally taking a toll on common citizens. Although Pakistan had been grappling with such issues since quite long, things seem to be quite apocalyptic for the common citizens this time. The power crisis has worsened to such an extent that orders have been given for early closure of shopping malls, markets. Pakistan barely even has enough stock of oil, gas and electricity to keep its basic infratructures up and running. Just recently, Pakistan cabinet has approved the ‘National Energy Conservation Plan’ to save energy to deal with the power and fuel crisis. But how did the country reach at such critical stage? Is it also going Sri Lanka and Bangladesh’s way when it comes to economic hardships? Let’s break it down for you in this video. But before that don’t forget to like, share and subscribe to Oneindia.

This Day in History:, Gandhi Is Assassinated.
January 30, 1948.
The political and spiritual leader
of the Indian independence
movement was assassinated
in New Delhi by a Hindu fanatic.
Known as Mahatma, or “the great soul,”
Gandhi’s methods of civil disobedience influenced
leaders of civil rights movements around the world.
He organized his first campaign of satyagraha,
or mass civil disobedience, in 1906 while
working as a lawyer in South Africa.
Five years after returning to India,
Gandhi launched a new satyagraha in 1919 in
protest of Britain’s mandatory military draft of Indians.
For the next two decades, he led fasts, marches,
worked for India's poor and was often imprisoned.
In 1942, Gandhi launched
the “Quit India” movement,
which called for a total
British withdrawal from India.
On August 15, 1947, Britain
agreed to create the two new independent
states of India and Pakistan.
When he was killed, Gandhi was on
a vigil to heal the religious strife between
Hindus and Muslims in his country
