Mr. Younas explained that during the tenure of PMLN Govt. Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif held the youth ministry, which made it impossible to keep transparencies of running the affairs of the ministry, the reason behind it was the unavailability of the PM to the ministers and Activists alike.
He went on to say that most of the political parties consider youth only in their slogans but not in their manifesto, however PPP that has shortlisted a young boy for Senate and young chairman Bilawal Bhutto making him the youngest politician ever in the history of Pakistan, they are also focusing on Sindh youth policy, which recently has been approved. “PPP also take youth policy as an essential part in their manifesto.
