Sarghoda (HRNW): In order to catch up with other political parties having launched mass contact campaigns ahead of the upcoming general elections, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is all set to hold a public meeting in Kot Momin, Sarghoda today. All arrangements for the meeting have been completed with stepped up security. Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif will address the gathering. Party flags and banners portraying Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and other party leaders have been displayed at the venue and the roads leading to the place.
The PML-N’s power show was slated to be held on December 31, but it was rescheduled owing to the former premier’s mysterious visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The PML-N president has already directed his party leaders to speed up people-to-people contact campaign across the country. On January 02, Sharif and his younger brother returned from the kingdom separately after meeting Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman. Their trip to Saudi Arabia set off rumour mills in the country, with political opponents alleging that Sharifs were seeking help of their old friends in the kingdom to get away with corruption charges.
