Islamabad [Pakistan], August 15 (ANI): The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) members on Wednesday raised slogans in the National Assembly against Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), which has bagged maximum seats in the recently-concluded general elections.
The opposition staged a protest against alleged rigging of elections on July 25.
The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan official Marvi Sirmed tweeted, "Lota fauj na manzoor, LotoN ki fauj namanzoor. Slogans being raised by PMLN members on the floor of the House #NA. Protesting against massive rigging plotted by permanent powers."
The protest and slogan shouting took place after PTI's Asad Qaiser was elected as the Speaker of the National Assembly. No sooner did Qaiser take the oath, PML-N members started sloganeering 'Vote ko izzat do', Samaa TV reported.
Beginning of the month, anti-Army protests were also staged in Pakistan's Punjab province over alleged rigging. The protesters were heard shouting slogans like "Ye jo dahshatgardi hai, iske peeche vardi hai (Army is behind this terrorism)." (ANI)
