As the opposition leaders were busy with anti-government protests at the famous park (Minar-e-Pakistan) in Lahore, Prime Minister Imran Khan spent his Sunday morning with his pet dogs, as he did not seem bothered at all by the political unrest in the country.
While the premier spent a perfect weekend morning, opposition leaders were preparing for Pakistan Democratic Movement's (PDM) jalsa (rally) at Minar-e-Pakistan in Lahore where they were to talk about ousting the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Pakistan (PTI-led) government.
On Sunday, Imran took to his Instagram to post a set of pictures in which he could be seen spending some quality time with his dogs — Sheru and Tiger.
In the viral photos, that instantly made rounds on social media, the prime minister could be spotted merrily feeding his pets under the bright morning sun at his Banigala residence in Islamabad.

He shared five pictures, which were captured in the garden of his house, to show that he is relaxing at home with his pets and not at all bothered about what the opposition leaders are planning against his government.
On Sunday night, the PDM held its sixth and last public rally at the Minar-e-Pakistan Ground Lahore and its leaders lambasted the government for its failures in every sphere of life.
Imran Khan made the announcement in a televised address to the nation, alleging that some lawmakers from his ruling Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) party had been bribed by the opposition to vote for former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani in the Senate elections on Wednesday.
"The PDM must bear in mind that people don’t support looters. People around the world have come out on the streets to protest against corruption. Has anyone ever come out on the streets to support corruption of political leaders.”
"Why do these revelations expose repeatedly?” he posed a question in a series of tweets, and said exactly what he has been saying in his 24 years fight against corruption, which is the biggest threat to Pakistan’s progress. "These elites come to power and plunder the country.”
