HARIPUR: Local leadership of PML-N has announced to give a rousing welcome to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in Haripur on January 20.

The announcement was made at a meeting of PML-N workers organised at the residence of former provincial minister Qazi Mohammad Asad Khan.

The participants reviewed arrangements for the public meeting of Mr Sharif who is scheduled to visit Haripur with his daughter Maryam Nawaz where they will address a public meeting at Curtis Ground on January 20.

Speaking on this occasion, Asad Khan and former speaker provincial assembly Habibullah Tareen said that Sharifs had always considered Hazara as their second home and they had approved a number of mega projects for this division.

Listing the uplift projects the former prime minister had approved for Haripur since 90s, Mr Tareen said that giving Haripur the status of district, electrification, Sui gas projects for 70 per cent of its remote villages, and now Hazara Motorway were a few to name.

He claimed that the Haripur public meeting, which was originally part of Mr Sharif’s Tereek-i-Adl, would be much bigger than the one he addressed last week in Kot Momin. He added that PML-N was still the most popular party among the masses. He said that the party would again form its government in the centre and provinces.
