”PM Khan has no time for sports, I can serve as sports minister to help Pakistan”, Boxer Amir Khan
After his ‘disappointment’ story surfaced on mainstream Pakistani media, he issued a clarification statement.
“I am willing to put myself forward as the sports minister to help sports at back home in Pakistan”- Boxer Amir Khan
Amir said that PM Khan is a great leader and is doing an excellent job but he has no time for sports.
Amir Khan, a known Pakistani-origin British professional boxer and a former unified light-welterweight world champion, is quite concerned with the sports sphere in Pakistan.
The 2004 Olympics made him the youngest British boxing Olympic medalist at the age of 17. Moreover, he also became one of the youngest British professional world champions after winning the WBA title at the age of 22.
Well, recently, Amir Khan, after showing disappointment with PM Khan for not doing anything significant for sports, wants PM to make him a sports minister.
After his ‘disappointment’ story surfaced on mainstream Pakistani media, he issued a clarification statement. Amir said he did not mean to criticize PM but set out a new request.
“I am willing to put myself forward as the sports minister to help sports at back home in Pakistan. At the same time, it will take the pressure off PM Khan,” boxer Amir Khan.
”Want to benefit PM & Pakistan”
Amir Khan further said that making him a sports minister will eventually help PM Khan because he will know “somebody is controlling that side of sports for him.”
Amir said that PM Khan is a great leader and is doing an excellent job but he has no time for sports. So, appointing him as country’s sports minister will benefit both Pakistan and the PM.
The boxing star said, “Imran Khan got fame from cricket but he could not do anything for sports in Pakistan. He is a great person but being a sportsman, he has done nothing for sports”.
Amir Khan also criticized former PM Nawaz Sharif for not giving him land to open a boxing academy. He tried to acquire it many times but the previous government did not pay any heed to his request.
