Shehbaz Sharif summons party meeting as Nawaz announces support for Azadi March


LAHORE :  Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif has on Saturday (today) summoned an important party meeting after party supremo and incarcerated former premier Nawaz Sharif announced his support for Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman’s Azadi March.

Shehbaz Sharif will chair the PML-N session in Model Town to deliberate on party’s strategy in the light of Nawaz Sharif’s letter regarding the sit-in protest. The opposition leader will apprise party leaders of the details mentioned in the letter by their supreme leader.

According to sources, Nawaz Sharif has stressed in his correspondence to completely support Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman’s Azad March and participate in the sit-in against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

Let it be known that Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman has decided to lead Azadi March from Sukkur on October 27. The campaign will be started from Sindh as Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman can be arrested from Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Balochistan due to PTI’s provincial governments which might affect the march at the very beginning.
