Nawaz Sharif and people are inseparable: Shahbaz Sharif


He said that the warm welcome of Nawaz Sharif proves that he is the only national leader who lives in the hearts of every Pakistani and the nation is fully supporting the PML-N leadership for the completion of development journey.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif continued a slow, defiant procession down the Grand Trunk Road on Thursday, inching closer to his stronghold of Lahore in a bid to rally supporters after his ouster.

In the 2013 General Elections, Nawaz won the seat by a substantial margin, defeating Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's Yasmin Rashid - who will be contesting for the seat this time around too. "Did you not vote for me as your prime minister?"

"I have brought my case to the court of people as I accept their decision".

"There is no charge of corruption or embezzlement against me".

He is travelling in a bomb-proof vehicle especially designed for the journey. He passed a number of camps where small groups of PML-N workers had gathered to listen to him, the media reported.

The former premier is now leading a procession from Islamabad to Lahore, the capital of Punjab province and the PML-N's seat of power.

In the meantime, a 55-year-old person was also killed when he was hit by motorcyclist that he was going home after attending Sharif's rally.

Questions have also been raised about the absence of familiar PML-N faces from the rally, who could possibly have drawn a greater crowd of supporters than relatively new faces such as Talal Chaudhry and Daniyal Aziz.

Daughter of former premier Nawaz Sharif took to Twitter and expressed that the local leadership has been asked to reach out to the family of the boy.

"The Supreme Court should do justice to Sharif and restore him", he told AFP. Shehbaz's wife, Tehmina Durrani, known for being vocal and candid on matters related to the Sharif family, asked Sharif in a series of tweets on Wednesday not to put his brother in a tight spot, saying Shehbaz should have been spared the responsibility of protecting and assisting his own party's rally.
