    LAHORE: Shehbaz Sharif, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president, concluded Friday night a rally that was initially headed to the Allama Iqbal International Airport to welcome former prime minister Nawaz Sharif after his flight from London via Abu Dhabi.

    Speaking to media, the former chief minister of Punjab said he had advised his party workers and supporters to return to their homes and that the people would now announce their "verdict on July 25".

    Earlier, the rally, comprising a large number of PML-N supporters, had attempted to make its way to the airport from the city's Lohari Gate area but faced numerous hindrances in the form of road blockades and containers stopping streets.

    Further, the former premier and his daughter, Maryam Nawaz, were taken into custody directly from the aircraft and boarded onto a flight to Islamabad shortly afterwards.

    Section 144 had been imposed across Punjab to deter any untoward situation, with roads leading to the airport blocked to deter the PML-N rally.

    The Metro Bus service in the city also remained suspended.

    Prior to that, Shaukat Javed, Punjab's interim home minister, had addressed a press conference in Lahore and urged the PML-N workers to refrain from taking the law into their own hands.

    "They [PML-N workers] have been informed that their rally is illegal," Javed had said.

    Clashes, however, continued province-wide as PML-N supporters kept trying to reach the Lahore airport.

    The father-daughter duo, on the other hand, was moved to Adiala Jail late night, sources confirmed, adding that their trial would be held in the same place.

    He would have become the next PM ........ only if he had the guts to do what was necessary at the right moment. Now its too late ...... hung parliament for another 5 years, that too with most of the unwanted ones sitting outside.

    If it wasn't the game of petty individual interests, Fazal Ur Rehman and Achakzai would have come out openly in NS's support ......

    Shahbaz Sharif has actually ditched Nawaz officially. His rally compromises of about 700-800 only ppl and that too from their own den, Lahore speaks volume. The rally failed to reach airport in time and his other comrades Saad Rafique, Ayaz Malik, Ranasunallah, Khawja Asif, Ahsan all failed to show up. This is sheer embarrassment for Nawaz Sharif and his daughter who have returned back only to help Shahbaz sharif win upcoming elections.

    His son was driving his truck very slow speed and hardly seen four or five vehicle in his convey . He had no interest in that rally ..

    LIke someone said ..... Nawaz tera jan nisar .... sab farar sab farar ...
    Till last night Ayaz Sadiq begging the govt to arrest him ... but today he was sitting alone on top of truck ..Punjab need to be divided otherwise corruption is beyond control and democracy will never flourish in Pakistan.

    What would be the purpose of gathering rally at airport when Nawaz sharif and Maryam was transferred to Adyala straight from plane and roads of lahore were blocked with containers and PML(N) workers got arrested as well

    No one is under siege, punjab have spoken. They have found new establishment to follow. They always salute rising sun. They are deeply divided society and vote on baradari, sect, etc before party ideology. Exception is south punjab who are more like sindh.

    Not sure Nawaz expected, he know punjab inside out. He knew no one would come. In 2023 punjab will ditch PTI if establishment change side.
