After Imran Khan lost the no-trust vote against his government in Pakistan's National Assembly in the wee hours of Sunday and was removed from the post of prime minister, his supporters took to the streets on Sunday.

At a demonstration in Lahore, Imran Khan's supporters came out in thousands and raised slogans against the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM). PDM is a group of Opposition political parties including the Pakistan Muslim League (N) that worked together to oust Imran Khan.

Earlier, Imran Khan tweeted that Sunday marked the beginning of a "freedom struggle" against what he called a "foreign conspiracy of regime change" in Pakistan.

IMRAN KHAN OUSTED

Despite the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government's efforts to avoid voting on the no-confidence motion against Imran Khan, the joint Opposition succeeded in ousting him when 174 members of the 342-member National Assembly voted against him post midnight on April 10.

With that, Imran Khan became the first prime minister in the country's history to be removed from office via a no-trust vote.
