Imran most popular leader: PTI spokesperson


Saturday, 30 June 2012 10:32



RECORDER REPORT
LAHOREL: Globally reputed research organization declared Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan as the most popular leader of Pakistan.
According to a PTI's spokesperson here on Friday, the declaration is based on the results of a comprehensive survey conducted under the Global Attitudes project of Pew Research Centre. As per the survey, seven out of 10 Pakistanis have offered a favourable opinion regarding the PTI leader. Favourable ratings of Imran Khan have increased by 18 percentage points over the last two years. The survey also states that Imran Khan enjoys incomparable popularity amongst young Pakistanis. The survey is suggestive of people's discontent with the proponents and beneficiaries of the political status quo.
Widespread disgruntlement is evident from the fast eroding popularity of leaders of two main stream political forces. Only 14 percent view Zardari favorably, down significantly from 64 percent in 2008. On the other hand, popularity of 'friendly opposition' leader Mian Nawaz Sharif has dropped significantly from 79 percent in 2009 to 62 percent today.
The survey states that details of public opinions on the most critical issues explain rise in popularity of PTI and its leader Imran Khan. Results suggest that nearly all (97 percent) of the people aware of drone strikes consider them negative. Those who are familiar with the drone campaign also overwhelmingly believe the attacks kill too many innocent people (94 percent).Nearly three-quarters (74 percent) says they are not necessary to defend Pakistan from extremist organizations. Thus Imran Khan's longstanding stance against the war on terror and the drone strikes in particular is one which is representative of the sentiments of an overwhelming majority of the people of Pakistan," it added.
According to the survey, Pakistanis continue to express considerable discontent with state of affairs in their own country. About nine-in-ten (87 percent) are dissatisfied with the country's direction. Similarly, 89 percent describe the national economic situation as bad. Crime and a lack of jobs top the list of national concerns, with nine-in-ten citing these issues as very big problems for Pakistan.
Terrorism is also a major concern and a vast majority (86 percent) agrees. Roughly three-quarters of Pakistanis are very concerned about corrupt political leaders (78 percent) and illegal drugs (76 percent). Widespread public concern on these issues is reflective of the extent of disgruntlement on governance at different levels.

Imran Khan lost his luster the day ISI chief Shuja Pasha retired. You cannot bring the change with a bunch of opportunist also a play-boy can hardly play a good role.
