LAHORE (APP) – Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif chaired a meeting at party’s Model Town secretariat on Tuesday.

It was decided in the meeting to give a rousing welcome to former premier Nawaz Sharif and his daughter, Maryam Nawaz, upon their arrival at the Lahore airport on July 13 from London.

Shehbaz said that father and daughter were returning to Pakistan on July 13 for the sake of country, adding that the duo would be given a historic welcome.

He asked the party leaders and workers to motivate people to reach the Lahore airport. “Expressing our resentment against the accountability court’s verdict in a peaceful manner is our right,” he said.

“We won’t tolerate maltreatment against any of workers. PML-N is contesting general elections on the basis of its performance showed during last five years tenure.”

The former Punjab chief minister directed party candidates to highlight Nawaz Sharif’s issue during the public gatherings.

PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb asked workers to show solidarity with Nawaz Sharif and Maryam. She also urged them to remain peaceful and calm.

She said Nawaz Sharif decided to return to the country despite knowing the fact he would be arrested.

“Nawaz Sharif turned Pakistan into an atomic power, strengthened the infrastructure and launched CPEC to bolster the economy,” she added.
