Former prime minister Imran Khan has given a call to protest against 'election manipulation' for Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz.

 “I want to appeal to the nation to record their peaceful protest against the Punjab Assembly developments tonight,” Imran Khan said after the ruling of the Punjab assembly deputy speaker, declaring Hamza has been re-elected CM.

“Don't take the law into your hands; stay peaceful,” he said to his supporters.  

“I am surprised at what happened in the Punjab Assembly,” Imran Khan said and questioned if people accept this decision.

He stressed Chaudhry Shujaat's letter is not effective, the decision rests with the parliamentary leader.

“Everyone is now looking to the Supreme Court (SC).”

He averred he has always prayed for the strengthening of democracy in Pakistan and that moral values possess importance in democracy but everyone has witnessed the horse-trading.

The PTI chief said that no action was taken against the horse-trading during the last Senate polls despite the footage.
