Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan said on Friday that the Supreme Court's (SC) decision to disqualify Nawaz Sharif marks the start of a new era in the history of Pakistan, where justice will be held supreme.
"Pakistan has won today," Khan said while congratulating the nation, he also thanked the SC, the JIT for upholding the law.

He added: "I have no personal agenda against Nawaz Sharif, I have known his family for 40 years, he did not take anything of mine, he had done wrong to the people of this country and that was why we wanted him to be held accountable."
"Historically there have always been two kinds of laws prevailing in the country, one for the weak and poor and the other for the rich and powerful," he said, adding that he spent eight days in jail and all he saw there was poor people held on minor charges while the biggest thieves in the country sat in the assembly.
Khan announced that the PTI will hold a Youm-i-Tashakkur gathering at Rawalpindi's Parade Ground on July 30 to celebrate Pakistan's victory against corruption.
He instructed party workers to not engage in any kind of actions causing chaos and wait for July 30 to celebrate the victory.
He added that the party will announce the course of action at the celebration.
