The supporters and workers of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) came out on the streets on Sunday on the call of Imran Khan to protest his removal from office.
A day before the premier was voted out of power, he, during an address to the nation, had said that he would not tolerate the installation of a “foreign government” in Pakistan and that he would turn to the public for support if such a thing happened.
“We are not a nation that can be used like tissue papers,” the former premier had said during a live telecast, maintaining that Pakistan does not want unilateral relations with any country.
Taking to Twitter as his supporters took out rallies all over the country on Sunday night, he wrote: “Never have such crowds come out so spontaneously and in such numbers in our history, rejecting the imported govt led by crooks.”
PTI supporters from various cities posted videos of rallies on PTIofficial Twitter handle. A supporter uploaded video of former Punjab health minister Yasmin Rashid leading a rally in Lahore.
The party had shared more than 40 spots in Punjab, Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa where they were protesting.
The PTI had also directed its supporters to share visuals of their protests on social media.
