"January 1, 2018, will not be an ordinary day; those born in this century will start turning 18, the 'Bhagya Vidhatas' of our country. Everybody is equal in our nation; no one is big or small. Together we can bring a positive change in the nation," he said

On that note, an exercise of the same kind was executed on Monday to mark Pakistan's Independence Day.
