"This scenario could never occur in any civilised country as rule of law prevails," Khan said, adding that the corrupt are not facing the consequences as there is no rule of law in Pakistan.

“I can’t get a first information report registered as an ex-prime minister because a powerful person is in it,” he said.

Imran Khan said that “deals” were being made in the country with powerful criminals, adding that “no nation could progress without [ensuring] rule of law”.

The former prime minister said that the on the nation should participate in the PTI's long march for future generations.

“If we act like cattle, then God will let us remain like this,” Khan said, urging the nation to fight for their freedom and their rights.

"Everyone should be equal in the eyes of the law. The police should listen to our viewpoint," he said.

The PTI leader said that even though the party has a government in Punjab, they are still hopeless.

"This hopelessness tells that some people are above the law," he added.
