“Politics today has been restricted to personalities and cult following due to which public issues and ideological politics have taken a back seat. A glaring example is the fact that not only those who were elected MNA and MPA from my constituency but even the CM of this province has to order water tankers to meet requirements at their personal residence.
He believes to form a political party of like-minded people and gather the youth on his platform to transform the society.
“The youth of this country has the potential to change the political landscape of Pakistan and for that, we cannot afford to wait for opportunities. We need to believe in ourselves, take the initiative and create opportunities.”
Hence, M.Jibran Nasir has beefed up his election campaign and is seeking the endorsement of influential celebrities to win the election.
