ISLAMABAD - A social entrepreneur, Salman Saeed, has launched a website *Khan Meter link* to monitor the progress of 100-day agenda and track the initiatives promised by the Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf (PTI) Imran Khan , waiting to take the oath as the next Prime Minister of Pakistan.
Saeed decided to develop the Khan Meter when there was a widespread discourse for tracking PTI’s promises. The meter is divided into the number of days passed, the number of goals that have not been addressed, and the number of promises that are in progress or have been achieved or broken. Currently, the meter stands uninitiated as Khan has yet to take the oath as the Prime Minister and prove compliance with his commitments.
The website enlists the top priorities of PTI as extracted by Saeed from the party’s 100-day agenda. 47 indicators of the 100-day plan are being tracked across seven major categories of the Khan Meter that include:
- Governance - Federation - Economy - Agriculture - Water - Society - Security
The website also has a discussion space for each category that allows the public to comment on the progress of PTI’s progress, and express their opinion on the governance challenges in the way of achievement of the 100-day plan.
Saeed is now planning to extend the project from 100 days to the whole tenure of the new government. The extension is aimed to incorporate the complete manifesto of PTI devised for General Elections 2018. He believes that we only vote political leaders and forget about monitoring the promises they make during election campaigns.
