On second day, Nawaz Sharif's rally gets mixed response

PTI candidate Yasmin Rashid met Imran Khan after extensive door-to-door political campaign

After 60 days, the probe committee filed its report in the court and within two weeks, a verdict was delivered that ordered the elections authority to disqualify Nawaz Sharif.

Following the apex court's verdict, the Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) announced Punjab Chief Minister and Nawaz Sharif's younger brother Shehbaz Sharif as the next Prime Minister of Pakistan.

A speeding auto accompanying Nawaz Sharif's "homecoming" motorcade crushed a nine-year-old child in Lalamusa, Punjab, on Friday, the media reported.

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

The former premier is now leading a procession from Islamabad to Lahore, the capital of Punjab province and the PML-N's seat of power.

Nawaz Sharif said that he didn't receive any salary from his son, and how can someone disqualify him on receiving money from his son.

As news of the boy's death made national headlines, Nawaz Sharif's daughter, Maryam Nawaz, took to Twitter to express grief over the incident and said that the local PML-N leadership had been asked to provide assistance to the grieved family.

Lawmaker Shahid Khaqan Abbasi replaced the three-time prime minister Sharif after the Supreme Court's July 28 ruling.

The Dawn said that given the controversial circumstances in which Sharif was judicially ousted by the top court, it was inevitable that the PML-N would seek to demonstrate support for its leader.

Rashid further said that the PML-N was being "forced" to contest the by-election due to Nawaz's ouster, adding that they should do so on a level playing field without using government machinery. There were no charges of corruption or kickbacks on me. "I believe the people of Islamabad and Rawalpindi should be congratulated for having stood by Nawaz Sharif", he said. "Wait for my call to join me in the struggle against such elements as have disgraced the democratic right of the people", he said. "Do not forget your promise and when Nawaz Sharif's message will reach to you, you all have to be with me", he urged the workers.

"May I ask why I was ousted?"

Sharif's convoy moved at very fast pace from Rawalpindi to Jhelum, at times speeding at 120 kms per hour.
