He claimed that he had been removed from the office of prime minister on frivolous charges.

"I will be on roads to make sure the birth of a new Pakistan where prime minister is not humiliated this way".

"Then why I have been ousted", the 67-year-old veteran politician said.

"Is there any court in the country to hold a dictator accountable?"

Rashid further said that the PML-N was being "forced" to contest the by-election due to Nawaz's ouster, adding that they should do so on a level playing field without using government machinery.

Sharif, who could not complete his term for a third time, also asked the gathering, "Should I sit back and accept the verdict or fight the injustice?"

"This country can not go like this".

Nawaz Sharif, who was ousted by Supreme Court (SC) under Article 62 (1)(f) of the Constitution in Panama Leaks case, on Friday resumed his "homecoming rally" towards Lahore via Grand Trunk Road after a stopover in Jhelum.

Sharif said he was not seeking restoration but his struggle was to institute "respect for the mandate of the people". "I have never seen such crowd in Muridke", he said.

And I just started The Handmaid's Tale , " Colbert said . "It's going to be fun", Colbert said. "We're gonna be talkin'". I'm going to ask what it's like inside there. "It'll be a lot of fun".

In a bold move, Sharif climbed on an open stage to deliver the speech instead of addressing his supporters through his bomb-proof special vehicle.

Sharif launched the so-called "caravan" procession from Islamabad to his eastern hometown of Lahore, despite the concerns of advisers about security. He stayed overnight in three different cities.

The notification also referred to the Supreme Court order and observed that Article 15 of the PML-N's own party constitution binds appointment of a party president within a period of one week.

The rally is travelling on GT Road and had passed through Kamonke, Muridke and will reach Shahdara and will end at Data Darbar in Lahore where Nawaz Sharif will address public rally.

According to DawnNews, the child was among a crowd of supporters gathered to greet Nawaz Sharif as his motorcade passed through Lalamusa. Someone tell me why I was ousted.

He warned his supporters that their elected leaders would again be sacked in future if "you do not protect your rights". "Is this not an insult to your vote?" he said. That has been said by the judges who disqualified me.

He said Nawaz Sharif fulfilled his promises and met electricity and gas needs of the country and brought peace to Pakistan.

The people responded in unison with a big "No", prompting Sharif to ask them to stand by him.

"This gathering here serves as a referendum". He said until the mandate of the people was respected, Pakistan couldn't make progress.
