GT Road rally: Nawaz en route to Rawalpindi
Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is on his way to Rawalpindi to begin his journey, via the GT Road, for his hometown of Lahore.
At present, Nawaz’s cavalcade, surrounded by scores of party supporters, is at Zero Point from where it will turn towards Faizabad on the Islamabad Expressway. It will then get on Murree Road, Rawalpindi from the Faizabad Interchange.
The former premier began the journey after departing from Punjab House around noon.
The ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader is expected to shift into the customised container shortly.
Senior government officials, including the prime minister, members of the federal cabinet and PML-N leaders, were present at Punjab House to see off Nawaz. Disgruntled party leader Chaudhry Nisar was conspicuous by his absence.
Sources said President Mamnoon Hussain and Nawaz’s daughter Maryam telephoned him to wish him well for the journey.
Before getting into the vehicle at Punjab House, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar embraced Nawaz.
Scores of supporters had amassed at D-Chowk, in front of the Parliament, as Nawaz’s caravan was expected to formally begin its journey from there but the former premier did not make a stopover there and is en route.
The decision for Sharif to reach out to masses by travelling via GT Road was taken at a party meeting at Punjab House a couple of days ago.
Sharif’s special aide on political affairs, Senator Asif Kirmani, said the route was changed after demands by PML-N’s local leaders and MNAs.
