Ousted Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif kicks off rally to hometown Lahore amid security concerns

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Shariz went to his hometown, Lahore, Punjab House in Islamabad, through the magnificent trunk road in order to expose his popularity among the masses.

Sharif undertook the trip after meeting with senior officials of his party and Prime Minister Shahid Abbasi Khawan, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar and Abid Ali Sher, Dawn News.

Stringent safety measures were deployed along the GT road.
According to the report, a crowd of some 5,000 people who must accompany Sharif will lead to the procession that will pass its first stop in D-Chowk.

According to the report, the Sharif rally will run slowly through elaborate hosting plans and should arrive in Lahore by Thursday.

Citing safety concerns about a bombing in Punjab province, Sharif was warned by his brother, Punjab’s chief minister Shahbaz Sharif, Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal and Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan also to avoid taking the road.

However, the former prime minister said that this is not a protest, and only a trip home and he is committed because “risks must be taken for the country.”

Meanwhile, opposition leader Imran Khan, Pakistan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf claimed that the state was used to carry out the historic return of the prime minister.

“Nawaz Sharif’s plan to travel to Lahore on the GT Road ride is a deliberate attempt to further undermine the Supreme Court of Pakistan, challenging its decision on the Panama issue,” Khan said on Twitter Sunday.

Dawn also quoted PTI leader Abdul Alem Khan as saying: “The Punjab government uses all its resources to succeed the program (the return of Nawaz Lahore).”

Similar reservations were voiced by the head of the Muslim Awami League, Cheikh Rashid, who says the procession was an attempt to seek an Army National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).

Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf had enacted the NRO during his regime. It provides an amnesty to politicians, bureaucrats, political workers, etc., who were accused of corruption, murder, terrorism, money laundering, etc.

Pakistan’s Electoral Commission today urged Nawaz to be removed from his post as leader of his Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) party.

After his arrival in Lahore, he must announce the candidate to the NA-120 that was launched because of his flight.

The Supreme Court of Pakistan disqualified Prime Minister Sharif placed in the investigation Documents of Panama.

The court found that Sharif was “fit for office” and had been “bad by Parliament and the courts for failing to disclose in the FZE Dubai-based company based on its application documents for the year 2013.”
