The Tehreek-e-Insaaf, which suffered from public criticism due to inflation during its government, once and for all. It began to regain popularity when Imran Khan adopted a narrative against ‘US-ordered regime change in Pakistan’ and began repeating it at public meetings and events.
Immediately after the ‘regime change’, Tehreek-e-Insaf started demanding that immediate elections be held because the country’s problems can only be solved by a government with a public mandate. called for a ‘peaceful’ long march on May 25, but initially, obstacles were put up by the government, but Imran Khan managed to reach Islamabad. People started gathering in the cities in the evening.

On the other hand, former Federal Minister of Tehreek-e-Insaf Fawad Chaudhry says that the only clear difference between the campaign of Tehreek-e-Insaf and Muslim League-Nun was Imran Khan, who made stormy visits to all 20 constituencies of the province and reminded the people that Pakistan Survival is only in achieving autonomy and true independence from America. Tehreek-e-Insaaf Central Punjab President Dr. Yasmeen Rashid said that her party has made an all-around strategy to win the elections. She says, “This strategy is not to ignore any minor mistake of the Election Commission of Pakistan. We kept the Election Commission busy and forced it to its knees, from errors in voter lists to the appointment of polling agents. He said that the party’s “entire leadership made sure that the people knew that Tehreek-e-Insaaf’s The government was dismissed due to external pressure and it is now necessary for them to come out and wage jihad against the foreign masters and their henchmen in Pakistan.” They asked for votes and brought people from their homes to the polling stations on polling days. Then the polling agents also guarded the votes until the results came.

During the election campaign, Tehreek-e-Insaf created a cell in Lahore to monitor six seats in central Punjab, which first took the phone numbers of voters in a door-to-door campaign and then kept in constant contact with them. A worker of the monitoring cell. Told that we made about four lakh phone calls in all six constituencies.
“In the last few days, the voters used to say when they heard the call that we will reach the polling station on the polling day itself in the morning. Syed Adnan Jameel, the covering candidate of Tehreek-e-Insaf in PP-167, said that he himself and in many other constituencies. Covering candidates stood as independents to use all available resources for their party. As independent candidates, we had given polling agents at every polling station so that the number of polling agents of Tehreek-e-Insaf could be more and the election can be better monitored.’

Dr. Yasmeen said that the party went to the door of every house and asked people for votes

Tehreek-e-Insaf candidates have built monitoring rooms and given vehicles in all union councils of each constituency.
