Nawaz Sharif to address rally on return 21 Oct

Former Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif would appear in a court a day after addressing a rally at the Minar-e-Pakistan in Lahore upon his return from self-imposed exile in London on October 21, according to a media report on Friday. Sharif, the 73-year-old Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo, will kick off the election campaign of his party after a rally at the Minar-e-Pakistan. ‘After appearing at the rally and announcing the final manifesto of the party, Nawaz Sharif will appear in court the next day,’ the Pakistan Observer said quoting PML-N’s Punjab president Rana Sanaullah. The announcement (by Sanaullah) comes a day after Pakistan’s anti-graft body said it is reopening at least four corruption cases against Nawaz Sharif coinciding with his scheduled return to the country next month.
