Sharif kicks off roadshow to Lahore in show of strength

10 Août 2017

Ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif's procession entered its second day on the streets as the PML-N leader resumed a long road trip back to his hometown, Lahore, via the Grand Trunk (GT) Road on Thursday after an overnight stay in Rawalpindi.

"I don't want reinstatement for myself".

PM also said that the Dubai government had issued millions of resident visas in a specific period of time and there is no law in Pakistan that hinders acquisition of such facility.

An army patrol was conducting a search operation in Upper Dir on Tuesday night, near the Malakand region where the Pakistani Taliban had controlled large swaths of territory until a military operation in 2009.?"The military officials received information about the presence of terrorists in the area", the military said in a statement. "So now I think I should go home". According to Malik Mohammad Ahmed, a spokesman in Punjab where Lahore is the provincial capital, Sharif planned to travel with a convoy of supporters by road on Wednesday from the capital, Islamabad, to Lahore.

Ahmed said police were still investigating who was behind the Monday bombing. "I served the masses and me and my party would carry forward this legacy", he said.

Party leaders have recently suggested that Abbasi is expected to hold office until elections due next year, a reversal of earlier indications that Sharif's younger brother, Shahbaz, would take over the office. "I believe the people of Islamabad and Rawalpindi should be congratulated for having stood by Nawaz Sharif", he said.

Former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif (2nd L) waves as he comes out from a container after delivering a speech to his supporters during a rally in Rawalpindi, Pakistan on August 10, 2017. In 2012 then prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani was disqualified over contempt of court charges for refusing to reopen a corruption case against President Asif Ali Zardari.

He reiterated that neither he and nor any of his family members were involved in corruption. The court also ordered a criminal probe into his family over allegations stemming from the "Panama Papers" leaks of global offshore companies.

"God willing, I will remain active". He also said his party has provided details of 40,000 donors after accusations of illegal foreign funding, which is being probed by the election commission.

Not everyone who braved the sweltering heat at the rally in Islamabad supported Sharif, however.

On the contrary, the opposing party and its perpetrators contest this very notion, snapping that concealment of assets is in fact a very significant crime, and one that should definitely end up in a criminal sentence against Nawaz Sharif.
