RAWALPINDI: Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif resumed his march from Rawalpindi. He will use a long road trip back to his hometown, Lahore, via the Grand Trunk (GT) Road after an overnight stay in Rawalpindi as his procession enters its second day on the streets.
The deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who was disqualified by the apex Supreme Court of Pakistan for not declaring his non-receivable salary/ FZE company Dubai in his election nomination papers, hence was termed as not “Honest” under the article 62 of the constitution; showed his displeasure to the Interior Ministr Ahsan Iqbal, Marvi Memon for not been able to gather immense crowd to accompany him in his political onslaught on his adversaries, sources add.
The rally is expected to proceed to Rawalpindi’s Kutchehry Chowk, where there is a workers’ camp set up, with a large number of female supporters also in attendance, TV report adds.
Nawaz addressed his supporters for the first time since the rally had kicked-off, stating that his disqualification by the Supreme Court in the Panamagate case was an “insult” to his voters.
“The court of the people of Pakistan has given its verdict in my favour,” the PML-N leader claimed.
The political analysts are divided in anticipating the real intent of the ousted PM Nawaz Sharif holds. For few, his march is symbolic to showcase his political muscles to PTI(Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf) and other political adversaries, but for many his political show is to send message to the state organs, that the people of Pakistan have given their own verdict, which over turned the ‘political verdict’ of over throwing him from the corridors of power.
