  • Navjot Singh Sidhu Arrives For Imran Khan's Oath Taking Ceremony In Pak

While some supported Imran Khan and slammed Noah, others said he is a comedian hence his comments should not be taken seriously.

India had responded to Khan's statements by saying, "We hope that the new Pakistan government will work constructively to build a safe, stable, secure and developed South Asia free of terror and violence".

PTI candidates were also voted Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly this week, putting Khan in a strong position to carry forward his legislative agenda. His only rival, Shahbaz Sharif of the ousted Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), won 96 votes, Qaiser said, with some opposition parties including the third-largest Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) abstaining from the vote.

Imran Khan has been elected Pakistan's prime minister by the parliament after his party swept the general election last month, marking the beginning of his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) tenure in power.

In the July 25 elections, Imran Khan's PTI won 116 of the directly contested 272 seats, just 21 short of the halfway mark. The Senate, parliament's upper chamber, is controlled by the opposition. The army and Khan have denied the claims.

The UN Security Council also issued a statement condemning the "heinous and cowardly" attack . Police said earlier three people had been wounded in the 6-hour clash.

Khan shot back that he had "struggled 22 years" to become premier. "You had said that if rigging in 2013 elections would be proven, Nawaz Sharif's government should resign".

Murtaza Abbasi, a PML-N lawmaker, said in parliament Khan was "brought here by aliens", a euphemism for the military. "I got here on my own".

The result announcement by the speaker of the house rattled lawmakers of PML-N sparking a loud protest against Khan's victory as unacceptable repeatedly chanting "Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif" who was judicially ousted from the premiership past year and is serving time in prison on corruption charges.

Earlier this week Asad Umar, widely expected to be appointed Finance Minister, told the English-language Dawn newspaper that Pakistan turning to the International Monetary Fund would be a "fallback option" and that all other possibilities are being explored.
