He said that the open buying and selling of politicians and party members by other parties is a blatant violation of the norms of a democratic system, adding that if such practices do not stop, then Pakistan would become the next Sri Lanka.

"If this horse-trading and use of money to buy off our members does not stop, I am warning that Pakistan will become the next Sri Lanka," he said while addressing a gathering in Lahore.

"I will not be responsible for what happens next," he added, highlighting that his narrative of change and foreign conspiracy of regime change to oust his government has reached every house, which can trigger a major uproar plunging the country into a civil war between the people and the institutions.

Imran Khan's threat comes at a time when important elections for Punjab's Chief Minster are happening. And despite a clear majority of the PTI's candidate, reports of members missing and hefty amounts of money being offered by other parties is being openly practiced in what, Imran Khan called, "stealing the mandate" required to win the election and take control of the country's largest province.
