What do the youth of Pakistan think? Here are a few thoughts they shared:

"Imran is a symbol of hope and change. He launched ‘Sehat Sahulat Program’ which succeeded in giving 70 percent health insurance to poor people. " - Maria, Political Science student  "In 2013, he (Imran) was given a province to make ‘Naya Pakistan’. He also played a crucial role as an Opposition in the national assembly. Judging from his past performance, I feel ‘Naya Pakistan’ is based on lies and double standards. " - Musa Bin Mohsin, law student
