LAHORE: Former prime minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif Saturday said the people from Islamabad to Shahdara had not accepted the court verdict regarding his disqualification.
Addressing a large gathering of PML-N workers at Shahdara, he said: “I promise you that if your enthusiasm sustains, Pakistan will make development in a few years.”
“I with your support will bring about a change. Will you support Nawaz Sharif?” he asked the sloganeering people, and got a big “yes” in response.
He said:”I was deposed only on the charges of not getting salary from my son.” He did not commit any corruption, he added.
He expressed his joy on the welcome accorded to him by the people of Shahdara and said he witnessed the same enthusiasm and zeal everywhere on his way from Islamabad.
Earlier, on reaching Shahdara, Nawaz Sharif was accorded a historic welcome by thousands of party workers and supporters. They were chanting slogans and carried placards, banners and posters of their leader.
He also asked the crowd to come with him to Data Darbar where he would deliver his speech in detail.
