Mr.Khan has promised jobs for poor and turn the palatial prime minister’s official residence into education facility, instead of living in it. And also promised a lot of things which seems to be impossible. Mr Khan’s success in the general elections in pakistan is a stunning rise for someone who has spent much of his political career on the fringes of Pakistan politics.
