People still consider Nawaz Sharif as Prime Minister: Khurram Dastgir

  • Imran Khan believes that Nawaz Sharif is protesting against the Supreme Court verdict against him

The July 28 ruling by the Supreme Court, which forced Nawaz Sharif to step down, had also affected other members of the Sharif family, including his two sons and daughter Maryam.

As at previous stops along the route, Sharif railed against the court's decision, insisting his conscience was "clean" against allegations of corruption.

Shehbaz Sharif is set to be appointed as president of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) after Pakistan's Election Commission asked the ruling party to replace his brother Nawaz Sharif, who was disqualified as prime minister by the Supreme Court, a senior leader has said.

Speeding cars accompanying Nawaz Sharif's "homecoming" motorcade crushed a nine-year-old child to death in Lalamusa on Friday, DawnNews reported.

The polling for the election will be held on September 17.

Sharif is now holding rallies across Punjab, where the city of Lahore - the Sharif family's home town - is the provincial capital.

Last month, Sharif was disqualified by a five-member Supreme Court bench for dishonesty.

She also said that the country is on its path to become an economic hub and that Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will continue with Nawaz's policies of economic growth.

Former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif termed his disqualification from premiership as a "joke".

Meanwhile, the Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs Khawaja Muhammad Asif departed from Sialkot with a huge gathering of PML-N workers and supporters to join the mammoth rally of Nawaz Sharif. "Isn't it a disgrace to the people of Pakistan that 5 judges ousted the PM who you had voted to power? One of them (Gen Pervez Musharraf) went out for medical treatment of his backache but never came back to face cases", he said. "I am a patriotic Pakistani", Sharif said. There were no charges of corruption or kickbacks on me.

Sharif said in his Gujrat speech he would personally visit the boy's home "and try to help his family for life". This, thus had made it impossible for his motorcade to move.

"I am going home and I do not want you to get me restored". Pakistan People's Party (PPP) has finalised Faisal Mir for the contest.

Sharif said he was not seeking restoration but his struggle was to institute "respect for the mandate of the people". Someone tell me why I was ousted.
