PTI stalwart Omer Ayub Khan voiced his rejection of the verdict on social media platform X (formerly Twitter), alleging political motives behind the judgment.

In a statement, he implored all PTI members and Pakistani citizens to maintain peace and composure following what he labeled as a ruling by a "kangaroo court" against Prime Minister Imran Khan and Vice Chairman Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi.

He rallied PTI members to gather on February 8, 2024, and cast their votes for PM Imran Khan's endorsed candidates, whose names have been disseminated on PTI's official platforms.
