Other sources also informed that several PML-N party leaders advised Nawaz Sharif that it is was rather hard to gather a large number of participants in Jhelum, and suggested to display the show of power in Gujranwala and ultimately in Lahore. Prior to his departure from Rawalpindi's Punjab House, the former Prime Minister held a meeting with PML-N officials and expressed anger with the administration over the low turnout of supporters, Dawn newspaper reported.

Former Pakistani premier Nawaz Sharif's rally through Punjab province entered its second day on Thursday, evoking a mixed response as thousands gathered to receive him at some places while the turnout in his party's stronghold of Rawalpindi was lower than expected. Abbasi is a lawmaker from Sharif's ruling Pakistan Muslim League party.

Pakistan's new Prime Minister, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, a close Sharif ally, said the former leader was alerted about the security threats.

Rana Sanaullah said that the journey of Nawaz Sharif from Islamabad to Lahore would not be against anybody but this was all about the future of Pakistan. After the verdict, he ceased to be a member of parliament. Normally, it takes up to five hours from Islamabad to Lahore while driving on the Grand Trunk Road but Sharif's convoy may take around two days, according to organisers. He also urged the cabinet ministers to fully cooperate with the Prime Minister.

"[I was disqualified because] my son has a company that I never took a salary from", a defiant Sharif said on the eve of his planned "caravan" to Lahore.

Kulsoom Nawaz on late Thursday signed nomination papers as PML-N has chose to field former first lady for by-poll in NA-120 Lahore-III, fell vacant after disqualification of former PM Nawaz Sharif. "I leave this for history to determine", said Sharif.

"The disrespect of the people's mandate is not acceptable", he said but added that he doesn't seek a return to government but the "respect of the people's vote".

The general elections in Pakistan is due next year.

"I'm selling sunglasses here because wearing these makes you look like a big leader, or a politician, and people seem to like that", said Abrar Hussain, 45.
