MANSEHRA: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader retired Captain Mohammad Safdar on Tuesday said party supremo and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif would return from abroad shortly.
He, however, didn’t give a schedule for Mr Nawaz’s homecoming.
“We [PML-N] are finalising preparations to accord a rousing welcome to our leader Nawaz Sharif on return. He’ll later address public meetings across the country,” Mr Safdar told the party’s activists here.
The PML-N leader said only his party’s leadership could steer the country out of economic crisis.
He said the people’s mandate in the 2018 general elections was stolen to help an incapable person, Imran Khan, to occupy the prime minister’s house.

Mr Safdar said the PML-N was the most popular party in the country and would steer the country out of economic crisis.
He said party leader Maryam Nawaz, who recently returned from London, would soon start a countrywide campaign to mobilise workers and hold public meetings, especially in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Hazara division.
The PML-N leader said his party would defeat the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf in elections.
He said the federal government would ensure early completion of mega development projects launched by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in the district lately.
