As the countdown to PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif’s homecoming continues, party president Shehbaz Sharif has advised all party leaders to avoid travelling abroad before the former prime minister’s highly-anticipated return on October 21.
Speaking to the media, Shehbaz said the nation was eager for Nawaz’s return, adding that the party leaders were instructed to focus on galvanising support and mobilising the public, rather than travelling abroad.

Furthermore, in a statement issued by the party, Shehbaz instructed all PML-N centres, MNAs, MPs, and ticket holders who were currently abroad to return home within the next three days.
“All senators, MNAs, MPs, ticket holders, and local leaders of PML-N should devote their full attention and efforts to the preparations for the reception of PML-N supremo in Pakistan,” he instructed.
Lahore power show
Meanwhile, as preparations continue in Lahore in full swing, the PML-N is organising a grand political power show to welcome Nawaz Sharif.
According to reliable sources, the party has decided to hold a rally at Minar-e-Pakistan, with separate pavilions for each division of Punjab being constructed on the grounds of the monument.
The performance of all former assembly members and leaders during the rally will be highlighted and reported back to Nawaz Sharif.
The main stage at the Minar-e-Pakistan venue will consist of three sections. The first section will house the dais for Nawaz Sharif’s speech, while the central leadership will be seated in another section below the main stage.
The remaining local leadership will occupy the third section, and a separate large stage opposite the main stage will be built for the media.
PML-N Lahore President Malik Saif ul Malook Khokhar has been nominated as the main coordinator and organiser of the rally, primarily responsible for the rally’s arrangements.
“Khokhar has taken the task of bringing in 140,000 workers to Minar Pakistan,” party sources revealed.
The central leadership of the PML-N has set targets for all divisions, including Lahore, and separate chairs will be set up for each division at the Minar-e-Pakistan venue.
This highly anticipated Minar Pakistan rally will provide a platform for all former MPAs and MNAs to showcase their performance and dedication to the party.
