This is the first move imran khan which i liked much..Imran you learn the Art of compromise...My opinion to you please please pay attention on the technical areas..Most important is voter list as most of yours youth have not been registered as a voter of Pakistan..Start a campaign from colleges and universities and convince the students to register their votes..As we have seen in past youth are behind you but not voted you because they have not registered their self at any town/council.

Same situation now youngsters joining yours party only on Facebook so now the time to turn their mind for casting of their vote on the day of voting....
