As a former sportsman, the premier is known to be vocal about the provision of sports facilities for young people in Pakistan. He had stated during the opening ceremony of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Under-21 Games at the Peshawar Sports Complex in March that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf government is dedicated to developing sports activities throughout Pakistan.
PM Khan has highlighted the positive aspects of organized activities and participation in sports and usually reiterates the significance of sports for the well-being of the youth.
He often speaks of the positive impact that participating in such activities has had on his own life, such as learning the value of victory and working hard to attain that victory.
“Life is synonymous with competition and sports teaches one engagement in healthy and positive competitions,” he said.
