Punjab CM asserted that PML-N has always preferred national benefits

At 12 noon, the Eighth Avenue in Islamabad had been jam packed. In a show of strength, Sharif was accompanied by hundreds of his supporters. The Afghan leader expressed satisfaction over the smooth transition and said that it was good for democracy of Pakistan, the statement said.

No democratically elected civilian prime minister in Pakistan has completed a full term in the office.

Opposition parties were not convinced about the numbers. Abbasi is a lawmaker from Sharif's ruling Pakistan Muslim League party.

It has been learnt that Sharif is expected to set off on his journey from Rawalpindi's Kacheri Chowd, where a number of supporters have already started gathering.

"As the rally gets closer to Lahore, it will surpass all other jalsas of the past".

As a result, it is expected that the GT Road will more or less remain clogged for the next two to three days.

He would also address a rally in Lahore after reaching the city.

Sharif's political caravan slowly made its way into the rural areas of Punjab province en route to his hometown of Lahore.

Sharif's vehicle separated from the rally, along with a police escort as he was not traveling in the bombproof container.

The formal decision would be taken later this week in Lahore in meeting of the PML-N. Mr. Sharif, however, has brushed aside all concerns and told his colleagues that it was vital to touch base with his supporters to inform them about his ouster. Party leaders have recently suggested that Abbasi will hold office until elections due next year.

According to media reports, he said in an interview that although Nawaz Sharif had been disqualified in accordance with the apex court's decision, people from different areas of Pakistan do not accept this decision and are against this verdict.

The rally picked up speed and passed Gujar Khan after a brief halt where the ex-PM delivered a speech.

Earlier, addressing a huge gathering and participants at Committee Chowk Rawalpindi last night (Wednesday), Nawaz Sharif said it is time to strengthen democracy in the country.

"It is unusual that a man who has been disqualified is planning to.Tell people he is innocent", said the cricketer- turned-politician.
