Huge rallies held in cities across the South Asian country in favour of ex-premier and against «foreign interference», a day after Khan’s removal in a parliamentary no-trust vote.

Tens of thousands of protesters have rallied across Pakistan while protests also took place in several countries in support of Imran Khan who was ousted in a parliamentary no-trust vote as prime minister even as the political opposition in South Asian country prepared to install Khan’s replacement.

Khan’s supporters marched in cities across Pakistan on Sunday, waving large party flags and vowing support. The youth, who make up the backbone of Khan’s supporters, dominated the crowds.

In the southern Arabian Sea port city of Karachi a massive crowd of Khan’s supporters shouted slogans promising Khan’s return to power.

«No to imported government» said one placard in Karachi as protesters chanted: «Any friend of America is traitor.»

In the capital of Islamabad, the lights from thousands of supporters lit up the night sky as Khan made his way through the crowd atop a brightly coloured truck.
