Aleema Khan, sister of Pakistan‍‍`s former prime minister Imran Khan, has said PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif‍‍`s premature declaration of victory in polls is an "insult to Pakistanis".

She believes independents have a two-thirds majority and the right to govern.

In an interview with Sky News, Aleema said her brother inspired a revolution in Pakistan from behind bars on Feb 8. "He [Imran] sent out a very clear instruction that you have to go out, protest outside the returning offices and recover your seats. The ones that have been stolen," she said.

"It wasn‍‍`t Imran Khan‍‍`s vote that they took away.

"They took away the right of 15 million people to recognise the symbol. That bat was a symbol that 15 million people who are illiterate recognise their candidate with," Aleema added.
