Shahbaz Sharif returns to Pakistan, workers raised party slogans
LAHORE: Opposition Leader in the National Assembly and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shahbaz Sharif returned to Pakistan from London early Sunday morning after a two-month-long stay in the United Kingdom (UK).
He landed at Allama Iqbal International Airport on board PIA flight PK-758. PML-N leaders and workers reached the airport to welcome him. Sharif waved to party workers — raised slogans in his favor and showered rose petals on him.
A strong contingent of police personnel and water cannon were called in with security beefed up at the airport to deter any untoward incident.
The PML-N president was then driven to his Model Town residence in a motorcade.
He had left for London on April 10 after obtaining bail in the Ashiana Housing and Ramazan Sugar Mills cases.
He said the decision about anti-government protests would be taken after consultation with opposition parties.
Sharif said that he had come to London for his treatment and that his all medical reports are clear.
