Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday made a goof-up on his official Twitter account when he wrongly attributed lines of a poem to Allama Iqbal, Pakistan’s national poet.

The error was quickly rectified by the premier who also issued a clarification in this regard.

“I stand corrected - this is not Allama Iqbal's poem but the message conveyed is what I have stood by and tried to follow,” PM Imran said.

Through the couplets, the prime minister urged the youth to understand and emulate in their lives the message conveyed by utilising their hidden capacities.

“If our youth absorbs this message it will release their great God- given potential that all of us possess as His greatest creation Ashraf ul Mukhluqat,” he added.
