Imran Khan appreciates role of electronic media in revolutionising Pakistan

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has claimed that the electronic media has played a vital role in revolutionising Pakistan.

According to Imran, “The intellectuals here were not understanding the impact of this electronic media. Now what it has done is that it has raised the level of political awareness in Pakistan, which was unprecedented. Today, you have the most politically
aware public in Pakistan. The most watched programmes are current-affairs programmes.”

The PTI chief has become popular amongst the young generation and reckons that media has played an important role in politicising the youth of Pakistan.

The involvement of youth in politics makes Imran confident that there will be a positive change in the country very soon.

The most popular leader in the country today stated, “I started noticing amongst the people that there was a change. And suddenly I saw the young people, for the first time in Pakistan, getting politicised. And no change can take place until the young get
politicised. So young and the women are the two sections of the society that bring change.”

PTI held a rally at the Minar-e-Pakistan in Lahore and a huge number of youngsters including women and children participated in the event. According to unofficial sources, almost half a million crowd was present at the venue.

Imran was pleased with the support he currently has in the country and claims to sweep the next general elections.

Apart from giving credit to the media, the PTI chief also believes that the corrupt political parties in the country have been a reason behind his popularity.

He said that everyone can clearly see how much corruption has damaged Pakistan and is continuing to do so. However, the positive thing is that the entire nation, especially the youth has decided to get rid of the current politicians.

Imran seems to have great deal of respect for the founder of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, as he praised him during his speech in the PTI rally at Minar-e-Pakistan. He once again praised him saying that Bhutto was a powerful leader and
a true Prime Minister, who could take decisions on his own.
