Sharif flays judges for his ouster

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.

A five-member Supreme Court bench last month disqualified Sharif for dishonesty and ruled that corruption cases be filed against him and his children over the Panama Papers scandal.

The incident enraged the local resident who later raised slogans against Nawaz Sharif.

The election on the National Assembly seat will be held on September 17.

Concluding his four-day journey, which began in Islamabad and culminated in a rally in Lahore, the capital of Punjab province, Sharif was clearly delighted to address the tens of thousands who gathered near the famous shrine of Data Darbar. While naming Nawaz Sharif, he should tell everyone who is conspiring against him.

According to the scheduled of Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz (PML-N), Sharif is expected to spend the night in Gujranwala.

In the process, new Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi "has cut a lonely figure in Islamabad, seemingly left alone to steer the ship of the government at a critical moment in the country's history", it said.

Contrary to the popular belief that Punjab's Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif would contest the elections, Kulsoom Nawaz submitted her nomination papers on Friday. "I am a patriotic Pakistani", Sharif said.

At a speech during a stop in the town of Jhelum, Sharif noted that he was voted into office by the people but judges ousted him. "One of them (Gen Pervez Musharraf) went out for medical treatment of his backache but never came back to face cases", he said. Did I commit any kind of corruption?

"I don't expect you to reinstate me, but I want you to support me for the betterment of this country".

Observers say with Kalsoom's nomination for the parliament seat, Sharif intends to seek the dominant role of his family in politics and try to retain his traditional parliament seat in Lahore. "We would have to make sure that your vote is respected". He said until the mandate of the people was respected, Pakistan couldn't make progress. "Promise me you won't allow your prime minister to be humiliated this way", he said.

Nawaz Sharif made Pakistan a nuclear power, he said adding Nawaz Sharif was protector of jobs of the youth.
