One of PTI supporters said, “I am hopeful that now at international level, our passport will be respected.” Another said, “He (Imran Khan) has done a lot in KP, now is the time he does something productive for the country.”

Other supporters said, “Look at dollar it has gone down and PTI is not yet in power.” From his speech, “he seemed to be quite determined. Within five years, Pakistan will grow a lot.”

It is a fact that Islamabadians like the entire nation have high hopes with PTI and really want it to perform extraordinarily well. Now that PTI has gained majority in national assembly, at this time according to ECP results it has grip over 116 seats, it is the matter of fulfilling those dreams which it inspired in them. To what extent PTI becomes able to come up to expectations of people, coming time will explore.
