Imran Khan, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, is accused of more than 150 criminal and civil cases. He is now in jail after being sentenced in multiple cases.

In this situation, a new government has been formed after the general election of the country. Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party called the government a 'coalition of losers', the BBC reported.

Even though Imran Khan is in jail, independent candidates who supported his party in the last February 8 elections have shown surprise. The way Imran campaigned using technology to win elections proved that he is the most popular politician. He is now also the most famous prisoner in the country, number 804.

Before the elections, this number became one of the campaign slogans of pro-PTI candidates. This means that Imran's popularity has been fully utilized by the party's leaders and activists. For this, the role of a group of leaders and activists with information technology knowledge is also significant.

Because, they were the ones who spread the speech of Prisoner Imran in the election campaign using artificial intelligence (AI). WhatsApp groups and websites were opened. Through this, they made Khan's speech artificially and delivered him to crores of voters, especially to the youth.

They took the benefits of it home. But PTI alleged that it was not possible to reap the full benefits due to widespread fraud in the polls.

Analysts are calling Pakistan's new government, which took office on Sunday (March 3) with Shehbaz Sharif as prime minister, shaky.

The recent elections were supposed to bring stability, writes Pakistani writer and journalist Mohammad Hanif. It was much needed to combat inflation and bitter political divisions in the country. But, it was replaced by a minority government, which is not strong at all. Those who joined were reluctant to join.

Imran's supporters campaigned in guerilla style in this election. Despite the obstacles, they were so strong in the polls that it became difficult to contain them through rigging.

Voter response to the Army's tactics in the election was unprecedented. They said, 'We are not as stupid as you think we are. We have the ballot in hand.

Most of Pakistan's politicians have been in jail at one point or another. But no one seems to have had more fun than Imran Khan because he won the election from prison.

On the other hand, he had to play with the tactics of the army as well. The army wanted to convey that Imran Khan and his party were finished. But, that strategy also failed because, before the election, the party organized a team of second-tier leaders and local loyalists to campaign for the victory of the embattled party.

They were sure that their leader would not be allowed to return to power. But they have shown through voting that they did not leave Imran despite the pressure of the army.

After Imran Khan's ouster, he vented his anger not only at his political opponents but also at the army. This also increased his popularity.

PTI supporters have decided to join the opposition. But, Imran Khan prefers to play his politics not in Parliament, but on the streets, public meetings and social media. PTI is terming the new government as a 'coalition of losers'. In fact, it is a coalition of parties that were individually defeated by Imran in the elections.

Many feel that Imran has become a more mature politician in prison.
