As former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s return to Pakistan approaches, the political atmosphere is charged with anticipation. The PML-N intensifies its activities, with senior party leaders rallying support at various conventions. At a significant party convention in Kasur, Hamza Shehbaz, the PML-N Vice President, declared that Sharif’s return would mark the resurgence of progress in Pakistan.
The PML-N’s development politics starkly contrasts with PTI’s politics of hate, as Hamza Shehbaz remarked, highlighting incidents that substantiate his claim. Amidst these political manoeuvres, expressions of solidarity with Palestine underscored the party’s stance on global humanitarian issues.
Lahore Gears Up for Major Political Rallies
In a major development, the Lahore administration authorized PML-N’s request for a grand public assembly at Minar-i-Pakistan on October 21, setting the stage for a potentially massive political showdown. The permission, encapsulating 39 specific conditions, requires strict adherence to safety and security protocols to protect attendees and the public.
This assembly is a welcome event for Nawaz Sharif and a direct political challenge to PTI, which previously showcased its strength at the same venue. In contrast, PTI’s application for a public rally faces hurdles, with initial venue proposals being rejected and alternative locations being considered amidst a tense political clampdown.
Both parties are in a fierce battle for public support, with Lahore becoming the epicentre of political demonstrations and potential shifts in the country’s political landscape.
