The PM said that his role model was Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. He was the greatest leader not only for Pakistan, but the greatest leader of the 20th century, Imran said and added that they had ideological leaders like Iqbal, the philosopher-poet. The model of Pakistan they wanted is not Pakistan which became a country heading toward the wrong direction.

While answering a question, Imran said, “as a Muslim, when we pray five times a day, we only ask one thing from Allah. We ask Allah to show us the way of those He has blessed, not the ones who went astray. So I seek the way of the blessed.”The PM said,” And you know success is not in our hands, its in Allah’s hands. All He expects us to do is to struggle in that way which he has commanded us. I am trying to change the direction of Pakistan and put it on the right course which it was meant to take. I repeat that it meant to be just and humane society.”

He said they will change the way Pakistan has been governed and they will change the mindset of the people of Pakistan. Imran said, “We will do it in two ways: One we will lift up the bottom 50 per cent of the population, rather than rich grow richer, bring people out of poverty, very much what China has done. China’s greatness is that it has taken out of poverty 700 million people in past 30 years. And it has become a world power. So we fundamentally differ from the way Pakistan has been governed, that’s number one.”He continued, “Number two, we want to make Pakistan to be a country where we invest in human resources, we spend money on human beings rather than on infrastructure. Once you develop the human resources they themselves invest in infrastructure. So the key is health, education, clean drinking water, justice.”
