Leadership is a God-gifted quality that has given to a few
people only therefore the number of visionary leaders is very small. The leader
with wide vision and wisdom is called a charismatic leader, who has power to
convince others to follow him through logical arguments and impressive
thoughts. Several countries made progress because of the leaders who were
sincere and committed. Pakistan
is not lucky enough to have got charismatic leaders to change the fortune of

After Quaid-e-Azam and Liaquat Ali Khan, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto
was a leader who had powerful leadership capabilities and a charismatic
personality. Except Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, Muhammad khan Junejo played a vital
role in the history of Pakistan
but unfortunately, he got less time to serve the country due to some political
reasons. Then comes the name of another good leader Benazir Bhutto (Late), she
had broad vision and power to bring the favorable change.
This country suffered a lot because of acute shortage of visionary leadership. Fortunately, Pakistan is blessed with a person who is a devoted leader in a true sense and his name is Imran Khan; chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-E-Insaf.
Imran Khan is chancellor of the Bred Ford University, ex-captain of Pakistan Cricket Team and founder of Shoukat Khanum Memorial Hospital where 75% of the deserving patients gets free treatment.
Imran Khan was born on 25 November 1952 in the heart of Pakistan- Lahore. He is son of a civil engineer, Ikramullah Khan Niazi and his mother’s name was Shoukat khanum. He acquired his preliminary education from high-level Institute Cathedral School and then he got his higher education from Royal Grammar school of England and Aitcheson College, Lahore. In 1972, he enrolled to Keble College, Oxford for the degree in Economics and Political science.
Khan Sahab joined Pakistan cricket team and became a popular cricketer of Pakistan. He was the only caption until now who managed to win the ICC world cup 1992. He is the eighth cricketer of the world in the category of all-rounder cricketers with 3807 runs and 362 wickets in Test matches.
After his successful career in cricket, Imran Khan entered in the politics of Pakistan in 1996 when he announced his own political party-Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf. He was elected as the member of National Assembly from 2002 – 2007. His gradual struggle transformed PTI into a strong political party. According to the recent survey, PTI is the most popular political party of the Pakistan. Imran Khan became the popular leader because of his zeal, enthusiasm and his mission. His political agenda included following key objectives:
• Freedom for everyone
• Eradication of corruption
• Independent judiciary
• Bringing a positive change in the country
His party is introducing new ways of leadership, new horizons of progress and many promises have been made by Imran Khan. Only time can prove that the pre-election promises would be fulfilled or not because it is a tradition in Pakistan that most of the political parties forget about the promises which they usually make for the betterment of the country.
The people of Pakistan have always tested the nerves of PPP, PML (N) and PML (Q) leadership. But the history has revealed that most of the leadership in these parties have self-oriented agendas therefore they were unable to bring any betterment in the country. They prefer to serve their selfish interests rather than serving the nation. So, this is the right time that we should decide whether a new zealous and committed leadership should be given a chance or not. To me, it is the ripe time that we must vote in favor of PTI rather than casting vote for looters and aggrandizes.
