Lawmakers elected on reserved seats should be jailed for switching loyalties, says former Pakistan PM Imran Khan

Islamabad: Former Pakistan PM Imran Khan on Sunday said lawmakers who were elected on reserved seats and "sold" their loyalties should be "thrown in jail".

One who has a constituency can argue that the PTI was unpopular in his area and therefore he had to abandon ship, he was quoted as saying by Dawn News while speaking to a gathering of Punjab lawmakers in Islamabad.

"That is still understandable [but] how can someone go [to the other side] on a reserved seat? They have clearly sold their conscience. They should be ashamed [...] they should be sent straight to jail," he said.

Imran Khan was ousted from power when he was defeated in a no-confidence vote against him.

Shehbaz Sharif took oath as the PM of Pakistan last month.
