Deposed Pakistani PM begins 2 days of rallies

He said there must be a review petition over the decision of the court. He equated his public mandate with the honour of 20 million population, reaffirming his claim of no involvement in corrupt practices.

Talking to Geo News earlier, PML-N leader and state minister Talal Chaudhry confirmed that Nawaz will be spending the night in Gujranwala and heading to Lahore tomorrow.

The ousted prime minister stated that was disqualified at the pace in which Pakistan was progressing.

When asked about Kulsoom's candidacy, Rashid said that the difference between them is that she is a "hardworking middle-class woman who will represent the ordinary people of the country", whereas Kulsoom comes from what her daughter, Maryam Nawaz, has called the "ruling family".

Before concluding his address, he chanted slogans of "Pakistan Zindabad". "The people want answers to all these questions", Nawaz said."The people will demand answers from all the dictators and the people who have not let this country run", Nawaz said.

As has been the case throughout his journey, he was greeted there with hundreds of party activists and supporters, showing their leader with rose petals.

Earlier, Nawaz's convoy departed Rawalpindi and entered Jhelum.

Nawaz began the second leg of his "homecoming rally" after leaving in his cavalcade from Punjab House, Rawalpindi on Thursday.

Pakistan's deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif kicked off two days of rallies on Wednesday aimed at demonstrating his political strength by making stops from the capital, Islamabad, to his hometown of Lahore, ignoring security threats and drawing thousands of supporters.

"The disrespect of the people's mandate is not acceptable", he said but added that he doesn't seek a return to government but the "respect of the people's vote".

Sharif has specifically referred to the five judges on the bench of the Supreme Court that passed the verdict to disqualify him under Article 62 of the Constitution in the Panamagate case. You elected me for Islamabad but I have been sent back home.
