ISLAMABAD: Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz have decided to return to Pakistan in a week to lead election campaign.
According to sources, the decision to return to Pakistan was taken after consulting Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) senior leadership.
Nawaz Sharif has also directed the party members to make arrangements for election campaign.
On the other hand, detailed checkup of Nawaz’s wife Begum Kulsoom Nawaz will be carried out at London’s Harley Street Clinic today after which ex-PM will be informed about her condition on Tuesday.
It is to be mentioned here that suggestion regarding earlier return of Maryam Nawaz is also under consideration.
On Sunday, Nawaz Sharif had rehashed accusations of pre-poll rigging in the forthcoming general elections 2018. He said that the same game which had been played in Senate elections was also being played in forthcoming elections.
“PML-N stalwarts are being coerced into contesting elections independently on symbol of the jeep”, alleged Sharif.
Nawaz once again claimed that PML-N’s candidate from Multan Rana Iqbal Siraj was subjected to torture whereas threats were hurled at his family for switching loyalties.
He said, “I never talk without verification. Truths pertaining to torture were verified from Siraj”.
