Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif took to Twitter on Thursday noon to criticise his arch-rival and the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chief Imran Khan for “undermining the Constitution”.
He made the remarks on the back of a Supreme Court ruling that rejected the foreign conspiracy theory of PTI.
Mr Sharif wrote that the Supreme Court’s judgment had “exposed the lies & propaganda indulged in by Imran Khan & Co.”
Honourable Supreme Court's detailed judgement on Vote of No Confidence exposes the lies & propaganda indulged in by Imran Khan & Co. Utterly shameful how IK tried to undermine the Constitution & manufactured the lie of "regime change". The judgement is a must read for everyone.

Khan claims that he was removed at the behest of a foreign power [United States of America] which was unhappy with Pakistan’s independent foreign policy. He has also accused some members of the military leadership, without naming anyone, of joining the opposition’s ranks while claiming to be ‘neutral’.
