He said that democracy was faced threats when there was rampant corruption and institutions were destroyed.
The PTI chief said that without free and fair elections, independent and across the board accountability there would be no democracy.
Imran dubbed Opposition Leader Khurshah as “Double Shah”, saying that siding a criminal was also a criminal act. He said that Shah should be ashamed for defending a criminal.
