But the name of Shahbaz was apparently withdrawn after some senior party members apprehended that the PML-N could stand to lose its grip in Punjab in the absence of the younger Sharif.

Kulsoom Nawaz, the wife of ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, on Friday filed her nomination papers for by-poll to the NA-120 seat that fell vacant after her husband's disqualification on July 28 by the c.

In the 2013 General Elections, Nawaz won the seat by a substantial margin, defeating Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's Yasmin Rashid - who will be contesting for the seat this time around too.

"I have brought my case to the court of people as I accept their decision".

He is travelling in a bomb-proof vehicle especially designed for the journey. His armoured vehicle picked up speed and proceeded to Jhelum with a police escort.

Large numbers of police were deployed in Islamabad and Rawalpindi on Thursday, as compared to the first day of the rally, but fewer cars were accompanying Sharif's procession. He held a meeting with party leaders at Punjab House there, Rawalpindi, before starting his journey.

The ex-leader has been rallying crowds since Wednesday as he makes his way down the major road from capital Islamabad to his party's stronghold in the eastern city of Lahore, weeks after he was deposed by the Supreme Court. PML-N leader Mushahidullah Khan claimed a rally of this size had "never happened in Pakistan before". He said that due to the wonderful policies of Nawaz Sharif, the country is fast moving towards prosperity and development. Although Chaudhry and Aziz were very visible during the Panamagate proceedings in the Supreme Court, it is PML-N stalwarts such as Shehbaz Sharif, Khawaja Asif and Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan who were conspicuous by their absence.

The former PM said people voted him to power for ending the prolonged power cuts and to propel the country's economy, claiming the power outages will be eliminated by the next year.
