Pakistan’s ex-PM Imran Khan joins TikTok

Court sends Imran Khan on physical remand in Toshakhana case

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan has joined widely popular short-video sharing app, TikTok, to strengthen contact with public.

Khas has been facing multiple cases following his ouster through a no-confidence vote last year. However, noose was tightened around him and his party leaders after the May 9 incidents when his supporters attacked military installations. Since then several PTI leaders have parted ways with the party.

To keep the public engage, the former premier joined the TikTok and received overwhelming response as the number of followers in a day has crossed 860k mark.
