A photo of former prime minister Imran Khan taken during his visit to Lahore on Sunday has gone viral, drawing criticism from netizens.

The PTI chairman was in the provincial capital for a day of meetings, including one with Punjab Chief Minister Pervez Elahi and former federal minister Moonis Elahi at the former’s office.

The photo of the meeting, in which the PTI chairman was sitting on the chief minister’s seat, quickly went viral, sparking a social media storm, with many questioning his authority to sit on the provincial chief executive’s seat.

Insider information

According to senior anchorperson Hamid Mir, “a lot of people are criticising Imran Khan for sitting on the chief minister’s seat, but they are unaware of the details as to what happened there.”

Mir stated that this does not happen; no one does this on his own.

Mir added that when Imran Khan visited the CM Punjab office to congratulate Pervez Elahi on his victory, he was photographed sitting on the CM’s seat while meeting the PML-Q leader.

“When Pervez Elahi arrived at his office, he asked Imran Khan to sit there, but the PTI chairman told him that it was his seat.” Moonis Elahi responded, “We got this because of you [Imran Khan], so you sit there.”

According to the veteran journalist, the father and son duo forced Imran Khan to sit in the chief minister’s chair.

“I believe Imran Khan should have been cautious and should have avoided the situation despite their insistence.”

Backlash on social media

Many social media users, journalists, and politicians condemned the PTI chairman’s “ill-mannered” move.

Information suggests that court magistrate Malik Muhammad Imran exonerated Imran Khan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and Sheikh Rasheed, the chief of AML, in addition to announcing the reserved verdict.

Acquittal of Sadaqat Abbasi and Ali Nawaz Awan from the Azadi March case was also ordered by the court.

It should be mentioned that numerous prominent members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), like as Shah Mahmood Qureshi, former prime minister Imran Khan, and others, were apprehended by the police in separate complaint letters pertaining to the Azadi March.

Following unrest between police and the PTI leader in the provincial capital, 42 charges were filed against PTI senior leaders and workers for agitation.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) had previously found former prime minister Imran Khan and PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi not guilty in a case involving ciphers.

Decisions on appeals from the cipher case’s conviction were announced by Chief Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb of the IHC.

The party’s vice-chairman and founder, who was convicted in a similar case in January of this year, received 10-year prison sentences apiece.

On the other hand, Qureshi’s arrest in the crimes that occurred on May 9th and Imran’s sentences in the Toshakhana and Iddat cases mean that they are unlikely to be released from prison anytime soon.
