I congratulate the people and thank Allah – Imran Khan

The traitors were sitting and conspiracies were being hatched. I want to convey to them that Allah is watching over the people. The people will not allow such a conspiracy to succeed.

In a democratic society, we should go to people and people decide the result of the election. Also, the future of the country cannot be decided on the strength of money. All their money will waste. The people have taken this decision. I tell the people today that prepare for the election and you are the one to decide. I congratulate the people and thank Allah that such a big conspiracy was unearthed. Today an attempt made to overthrow the Government elected by the people has failed.
