Wife of ousted Pakistani premier to contest for his parliamentary seat

PTI chief Imran Khan

The Dawn told Mr Sharif that roadside gatherings, speeches in city centres and slow-moving convoys were not the people's court or a sign of people's verdict. "The nation is asking why I was ousted?"

"If Nawaz Sharif is a symbol of valour and resistance, he should name the one who is involved in conspiracy" asked Mir. This was a U-turn from his earlier statement following his disqualification as an MP by Supreme Court of Pakistan that Shahbaz would be his permanent successor.

A police vehicle escorting the caravan of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif crushed to death a nine year old boy near Lala Musa.

"Today, there is power is in the country, farmer's tube well is working, loadshedding is about to end in this country, prosperity is returning to the country".

"This is the court of the people", he added, speaking from behind bullet-proof glass and saying that it seems the entire city had come out to greet him.

Addressing his supporters in Jhelum on Thursday evening, Nawaz said he is not greedy for power but wants to change Pakistan for the better. "Dictators rule the country for 10 years but a prime minister cannot even complete his tenure".

Earlier, Nawaz's convoy departed Rawalpindi and entered Jhelum.

After addressing his supporters, Nawaz held a meeting of PML-N leaders to discuss the future course of action.

Nawaz began the second leg of his "homecoming rally" after leaving in his cavalcade from Punjab House, Rawalpindi on Thursday.

Expressing his views in program "Capital Talk", Hamid Mir expressed that leading a rally towards Lahore was a political right of former premier from which he could not be barred, however, the million dollars question was still there: Who conspired against Nawaz Sharif?

Sharif planned to spend at least two nights along the Grand Trunk Road, the main road from Islamabad to Lahore, in his first public appearances since July 28, when the country's Supreme Court disqualified him from office for concealing assets. "Therefore, it is imperative for a strong Pakistan that people's mandate should be respected".

In Rawalpindi, Rana Sanaullah, a provincial minister for law, said the "sea of people" who joined the rally proves that Sharif "can be expelled from power but not from hearts". The former prime minister said with his actions, an era of progress had started and the country was at a taking off position.
