A significant drop in the popularity of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf is the consequence of Imran Khan’s own immature approach in the field of politics. Although a sincere leader, Imran Khan attitude towards the maintenance of his popularity and retaining his esteem in the hearts of his followers seem to render him not that dignified which a political leader is generally expected to be.
Some of those surrounding him easily manipulate him as they wish and this is the reason that the flow of events in Imran’s life as a whole seem to disturb him. But the question of Imran’s willingness to emerge out of these sorts of cyclonic events is bound to have a highly successful and smooth flow of political events of the party.
It is still not too late for Imran Khan to realise his failures and a firm determination to serve his country. What he needs to do is to develop political acumen and sagacity.
