Deputy Speaker of National Assembly Qasim Suri Thursday accepted the resignations of 123 PTI MNAs, revealed former prime minister Imran Khan in a tweet.

Khan was ousted through a no-confidence motion brought against him by the then joint Opposition, a move that the PTI called a "foreign conspiracy" hatched by the United States. The allegation, however, has been categorically denied by the superpower.

After being removed from the office, the former premier asked his MNAs to tender their resignations and refused to accept the newly elected premier, saying "there can't be any bigger insult to this country".

Taking to Twitter Thursday, Imran Khan lauded his MNAs for tendering their resignations.

"Want to appreciate our 123 MNAs as their resignations have been accepted by Speaker Qasim Suri. Their standing firm for a sovereign Pak & against US-initiated regime change bringing to power criminals, convicted & on bail — the ultimate insult to any self-respecting indep[endent] nation."

Responding to the call of the former prime minister, PTI's MNAs tendered their resignations to the deputy speaker of the National Assembly hours before the election of Shehbaz Sharif as the new prime minister.

The decision was reportedly made during the PTI's parliamentary party meeting on April 11.
