An inauguration ceremony was held on Friday at the Prime Minister House for converting the lavish building into a learning institute. The launching conference was named ‘Emerging Challenges for Pakistan’.
Islamabad National University will be set up on 30 acres of land and will offer MS and Ph.D. programs in the field of social sciences, applied sciences and applied technology. INU will not offer undergraduate programs.

The conversion of Prime Minister House into a university was a part of PTI’s manifesto even before the government was formed. Previously, the government opened the doors of the Governor House and PM House for the public.
Proving that he is the man of his words, PM Imran Khan said that all the symbols of colonial mindset will be broken while addressing the public during the ceremony.
We are making the masses aware of their rights so that they question rulers about their tax money.
Brilliant speech by #PMIK regarding his plans/vision for Education (specially Higher Education). For the first time saw a Pakistani ruler talking about investing in Education/Knowledge Economy.
