PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal said the country was making progress, but elections were allegedly rigged to bring in a government that ruined everything.
آج وہ یوم سیاہ ہے جب دو برس قبل ترقی کے قومی سفر پہ بدترین انتخابی دھاندلی کے ذریعہ ڈاکہ ڈالا گیا-قوم کا مستقبل 6% ترقی سے -1.5% تنزلی کی طرف موڑ دیا گیا-سی پیک کو عمل کی دنیا سے سوشل میڈیا تک محدود کر دیا گیا-قوم پہ بدترین مہنگائی، بیروزگاری اور غربت کی سونامی مسلط کر دی گئی-

PPP’s Sharjeel Memon criticised PM Imran Khan over various scandals in these two years.
#TabahiKay2Saal is the worst nightmare in the history of Pakistan. Oil, Flour, sugar scandals. Stay orders on BRT and Foreign funding cases, worst loadshedding and water shortage, NAB’s favouritism on Imran Khan, tareen, aleem, p.khatak, Kh.Bakhtiar, amnesties for IK and aleema.

Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) chief Aftab Sherpao questioned the delay in the probe into the rigging allegations.
The PTI led by Imran Khan stood victorious after general elections on July 25 in 2018. Opposition parties had alleged pre-poll rigging and lack of level-playing and linked the victory of the ruling PTI to massive rigging. A committee formed to probe these allegations has yet to conclude its investigations.
On this date 2 years ago the mandate of the people was stolen and Pakistan deprived of it’s true leadership. Those brought to power have added to the sufferings of the people and destroyed the very fabric of the society.#25July_selectionDay #25JulyBlackDay pic.twitter.com/nSKjOOlyx4
