After the events that have happened in the country, I have put this question, in some countries I am referring to May 9, everyone agrees on the constitution but not everyone is clear on the implementation of the constitution.Tehreek-e-Insaf's lawyer, Barrister Ali Zafar, said that the constitution has died in the country after May 14.
