Nawaz to be accorded warm welcome in Lahore
The only crime of Nawaz Sharif is that he worked for people: Rana Mashhood
LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League -N (PML-N) leaders Federal Minister Pervaiz Malik, provincial ministers Rana Mashhood and Zaeem Qadri have said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif will be accorded a historical reception upon his arrival in Lahore.
PML-N leaders were addressing a press conference at Lahore Press Club on Saturday. Pervaiz Malik, who is also PML-N Lahore president, said that the Panama case verdict was a very strange decision.
Malik said that civil society, legal experts and the PML-N expressed their reservations on the decision. He said we have the right to go for review of the decision. Malik said that people of Lahore would set a new record of public gathering upon arrival of Nawaz Sharif in the city.
Malik said that Nawaz Sharif left no stone unturned to serve the people of Pakistan. He served the nation and worked for China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and launched the war against terrorism.
He said: "I urged people to ensure joining the event in maximum numbers." Zaeem Qadri said that the PML-N had implemented the Panama decision. "We have left this verdict to the history to judge its credibility," he said.
He said Nawaz Sharif lives in the hearts of people. "He is a leader of the nation and we will render him an honour for his services," he added.
"Nawaz Sharif struggled for basic rights of the people. I request everyone living in every province, city and town to come ahead and join the event as well as our struggle."
Rana Mashhood said that "The only crime of Nawaz Sharif is that he worked for people." He said that gathering of people upon arrival of Nawaz Sharif will be like a referendum in favour of the PML-N leadership.
"We want to ensure sanctity of vote. We want to take Pakistan forward, eliminate terrorism, bring financial stability and strengthen the country," he added.
He said that the implementation of article 62, 63 of the Constitution should be equal for all.
