Headed by the renowned cricketer turned politician, Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf emerged victorious as the single largest party in the elections 2018. Imran Khan will be sworn-in as Prime Minister on August 18. Everyone who is someone will be attending the oath taking ceremony of the prime minister in-waiting, Imran Khan. People are excited to witness the ceremony initiating the journey of “Naya Pakistan”. There were speculation regarding the attendees of this sought after event. Media claimed that Aamir Khan will be attending the ceremony. this opportunity was denied to us after Aamir Khan excused himself due to his busy schedule.
First we got our hopes high!
Why you do this to us!Earlier last week, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) announced the guest list, stating that a few Indian cricketers including Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar and Navjot Sidhu were invited to the event.
Navjot Singh Sidhu is HERE!Former Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu was issued a 14-day visa for Pakistan by the High Commission in New Delhi so that he could attend the oath taking ceremony of Imran Khan. He is in Pakistan and We are really excited about it! Kapil Dev and Sunil Gavaskar have expressed deep regret for not being able to attend the oath taking ceremony due to former engagements. Sunil Gavaskar will be in England, attending a test match August 18. He spoke to Imran Khan and wished him the best of luck.
National celebrities will also attend the ceremony!The ceremony will still be star studded as it is expected to be attended by Pakistan’s international cricketers Wasim Akram, Javed Miandad, Aqib Javed, Inzam-ul-Haq, Waqar Younis among other star cricketers from 1992.
Imran Khan finalized the venueAfter the speculations that ceremony will be a public event and consideration of D-Chowk and Parade Ground as possible venues, President House (Aiwan-e-Sadar) is confirmed as the venue of the ceremony.
Imran Khan set first record of ‘Naya Pakistan’The guests will be served with tea and biscuits hence ridding the national exchequer from the unnecessary expenditure it goes through as every new tenure starts. It scares me to imagine how much money we could have saved if politicians just ate like normal people and each event didn’t have to bankrupt the national treasury. Like PTI loves to say “ Tabdeeli agai hai”.
Imran Khan – An example of simplicityNot just in terms of the events décor, food and preparation, Khan has decided to dress simple too. But with Khan Sahab’s ruggedly handsome looks, who cares what he wears, he’ll always be the show stopper. Sorry Justin!
After 22 years of struggle, Imran Khan is ready to bring a positive change in Pakistani politics and we are so excited for tomorrow!
This has been the culmination of 22 years of struggle. I can honestly say I have given my best for Pakistan. Now I leave the rest to Allah. https://t.co/DHO8zDHuN6— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) July 23, 2018
