Deposed Pakistani PM begins 2 days of rallies

Will any court punish a dictator asks Nawaz

On July 28, a five-member Supreme Court bench disqualified 67-year-old Sharif for dishonesty and ruled that corruption cases be filed against him and his children, forcing the embattled leader out of office. "I will keep guiding my party", he said.

Opposition parties were not convinced about the numbers.

However, the party's troubles are not over as it gears up for the by-election in Sharif's Lahore constituency - NA-120 - on September 17, Geo News reported.

The former premier was earlier scheduled to travel to Lahore from Islamabad via the famous Grand Trunk Road on Sunday, but the rally was postponed to Wednesday.

Massive security arrangements have been put in place on the route.




Sharif has spent most of his time in Murree in hectic consultations over the formation of the new cabinet.

Sharif, however, said that the procession was not "a protest" but "a journey back home" that he was undertaking because "risks need to be taken for the country". Mr. Sharif, however, has brushed aside all concerns and told his colleagues that it was vital to touch base with his supporters to inform them about his ouster.

Sharif's ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz party, which has a solid majority in parliament, elected his close aide Shahid Khaqan Abbasi as his replacement. "Having become redundant politically after his disqualification, and knowing he can now never become PM, Nawaz Sharif is prepared to destroy the whole democratic system", Mr Khan said. Last week, Islamabad Police had cited threats from various militant groups and expressed reservations about the rally that Sharif plans to lead from Islamabad to Lahore.

In late July, the Pakistani Supreme Court chose to remove Sharif following corruption investigation into his family under the Article 62 of the constitution. The timing and venue of gathering has not been announced, as it is not known how long he would take to reach Lahore.

"It is odd that a man who has been disqualified is planning to.Tell people he is innocent", said the cricketer- turned-politician. He has criticised Sharif's roadshow.
