Former Prime Minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan Wednesday alleged that the coalition government was preparing to "rig the by-elections in Punjab". 

The statement came at a time when the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has announced schedule for by-elections in Punjab that would take place on July 17 for 20 provincial constituencies.

The ECP had earlier unseated 25 PTI MPAs for voting against party lines. 

Imran Khan told a presser that Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shahbaz will "lose his power in Punjab soon" as he was "illegally ruling the province".

Talking about the increase in electricity loadshedding across the country, Khan claimed that there were no such issues when he was in power. "The PML-N signed the agreements on power project, yet our party did not increase the prices," the ex-PM highlighted.

"The PML-N government had installed power plants on imported fuels, however, no electricity is being generated and they are paying money for the capacity charges," said Khan. 

The PTI stalwart urged people to come out on the streets to protest against inflation and the coalition government.
