Prime Minister Imran Khan gave an interview last night and it’s drawing a lot of chatter
Comparing different political leaders has now become quite a norm. We have already seen many comparisons between Jinnah and Khan. Even after the Khan being in government, there is a constant comparison in the process which highlights the contrasting views and personalities of the ex-Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif and the current one.
Last night Prime Minister Imran Khan was interviewed by the senior journalists who discussed the achievements and a few future projects
Khan voiced his opinions and the interview provides a glimpse of his vision for the state he is ruling
Many people absolutely LOVED the interview
Great Initiative & Gesture By PMIK, To Gave Interview To Senior Journalists Of Almost All Main-Stream Media Networks. That's The Vision Of A Leader That He's Also Answerable To His Nation.

BUT eventually, some of the awaam started drawing out comparisons between Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan
How many times have former PM Nawaz Sharif or former President Asif Ali Zardari(while in power)invited top anchors frm the industry & allowed them to ask whatever they feel like & patiently,thoroughly answered each & every question? just asking – Cnt think of a single time🤔

A video of Nawaz Sharif being interviewed was shared by many people on social media…
Prime Minister Imran Khan just sat through a 90-min interview where he was questioned by a panel of 6 journalists.

This old clip instigated a comparison war on Twitter and the supporters of Sharif family also shared the interview clips in which Nawaz Sharif was portrayed as the best civilian leader

And yes, there was a faction which wasn’t really impressed by the interview of Khan…
Khan gave pretty poor interview. Mid term elections just after 3 months in govt? PM is supposed to complete his term not announcing mid term. Plus his justification of Dollar without his knowledge is pretty lame.

…they said that the interview was triggering more uncertainty
Usually, the television interview is a tool to take control of the narrative once it seems to be getting away from you, and to stabilise the political scene & the financial markets.
PM Imran Khan seems to use TV interviews to trigger more instability and uncertainty.
