PM Imran Tells Off Namal University Student For Interrupting His Speech
Prime Minister Imran Khan was enraged at a student who disrupted his speech at Namal University on Sunday. The student lodged his protest, while the PM was addressing the ceremony and demanded the creation of Namal Dam, which apparently offended the premier.
In response, the PM while addressing the 7th convocation of Namal University, angrily directed the student to leave the ceremony if he dared to interrupt him again.
Founding member and former leader of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Akbar Babar took to Twitter to comment on this matter. He said the PM was lecturing the students to prioritise Janoon (enthusiasm) over talent, yet the student was directed to leave the ceremony for showing his Janoon.
Janoon Vs. Talent
At the Namal University ceremony on Sunday, the moment PM Imran Khan started lecturing on how 'Janoon' prevails over 'Talent,' a 'Janooni' shouted "build Namal dam."
For want of 'Talent,' he and his 'Janoon' was promptly escorted out of the ceremony.

Another Twitter user criticised PM Imran, for behaving rudely and not showing the character of a statesman.
