ISLAMABAD, Following the fall of Imran Khan’s government as a result of a no-confidence motion by opposition parties, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Sunday staged protests in all major cities across Pakistan. The former ruling party, following its central executive committee meeting held at Imran’s Bani Gala residence today, had announced that peaceful protest across all cities including Lahore, Sialkot, Sahiwal, Karachi and Rawalpindi will be held tonight. “Peaceful protest will be carried out throughout the country today. The country stands with Imran Khan,” former energy minister Hammad Azhar said during a media talk. Karachi’s biggest rally was staged opposite Millennium Mall in Gulshan-eIqbal. In Lahore, major protests were staged at Lalik Jan Chowk Defence and Liberty Market. A large number of PTI workers, ordinary citizens and civil society representatives chanted slogans against “foreign conspiracy” to overthrow an elected government of Pakistan. Protestors strongly rejected the “imported government” being constituted in the country as a result of an alleged foreign conspiracy against the former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan. Gulberg Main Boulevard was jam-packed with protesting families, youth, el- ders and people from different walks of life. Protesters chanted slogans in favour of the former premier and against the “foreign conspiracy”. They were holding PTI flags, banners and placards on which slogans were inscribed in favour of Imran Khan.
