Lahore: In the dead of the night on Saturday Prime Minister Imran Khan lost the no-trust vote.
Most Pakistanis woke up to the truth in the wee hours of Sunday, many obviously were sad.
His supporters flowed out in their thousands on the streets of many cities on Sunday
This was all the more so in Lahore where a sea of humans thronged, raising slogans, according to India today.

Shorn off powers, Imran Khan has to work his way up from the grassroots again.
The mass rallies on the streets on Sunday signal at his whopping support base across the nation.
However he is still harping on the US conspiracy, which is not borne out by any evidence.
