Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan, while announcing the PTI Youth Policy, said he needs only the youth of Pakistan, not big politicians, to bring about change in the nation.

As per the PTI Youth Policy, the party will give 25 per cent of its tickets to its young members in the coming elections, reports The Express Tribune.

The policy further revealed the party's plan to form a youth parliament to train young people for leadership.

The party also intends to establish National Youth Foundation (NYF) - an autonomous institution solely working for the youth. According to the policy, the NYF will take care of activities related to health, social life, entrepreneurship, art and culture.

On the local government front, PTI will reserve two seats for youth councillors - one male and one female representative - who will work at the grass-root level and coordinate with the NYF for the execution of all the youth related projects.

The youth policy also announced that PTI will spend 5 per cent of the total Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on education, which currently stands at 1.8 per cent. PTI will also promote distant learning in Pakistan and will have a uniform education system for both the rich and the poor. The policy also promises to create two million jobs for the youth every year. (ANI)
