The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has alleged that “a fake provincial government has been constituted by robbing the people’s vote”.

A spokesperson for the party claimed in a statement on Tuesday that a woman who had suffered a defeat at the hands of the people had been imposed on them.

The spokesperson said the PML-N leader had started a journey of fooling the people after taking the oath.

The priority of the government of Punjab was not the people but the official protocol, the spokesperson alleged. The people of Punjab would hold to account the family that had been considering the land of Pakistan as their fiefdom for decades at every step and extricate their mandate at any cost, the statement added.

The spokesperson also criticised the role of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

With unconstitutional and undemocratic conspiracies of to deprive the PTI and Sunni Ittehad Council of reserved seats for women and religious minorities, the commission was on the path of open contempt for the public mandate, the spokesperson alleged, vowing to join the people in legal and political resistance.
