Najam in Reuters on Cricket Star’s Run for PM
Adil Najam, Dean of the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, was recently interviewed on Pakistani cricket star Imran Khan’s potential run for Prime Minister of the country.
Najam was quoted in a September 13, 2017 article by Reuters entitled “Pakistani Cricket Hero Aims to Turn Green Tide to Political Tsunami.”
From the text of the article:
“Imran Khan is certainly in the run for the prime minister’s office,” said Adil Najam, a climate change expert and dean of the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University.
“But in all fairness whether he gains it or not will have very little to do with the Billion Tree Tsunami. There is no evidence that planting trees can give a politician that type of electoral mileage,” said Najam, who is also a popular blogger on Pakistan issues.
Adil Najam is the inaugural dean of the Pardee School and is the former Vice Chancellor of the Lahore University of Management Sciences in Lahore, Pakistan.
