Putting an end to speculation about his return, Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif arrived in Pakistan early Sunday morning amid strict security arrangements and was welcomed by a large gathering of PML-N workers and leaders.
Shehbaz arrived at Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport at 4:49am by Pakistan International Airlines flight PK-758. Upon arrival, he was showered with rose petals and currency notes while workers chanted slogans.
In the form of a rally, party workers accompanied him from the airport to his residence in Model Town, where sweets were distributed.
In the Ramzan Sugar Mills corruption case, Shehbaz and his son Hamza Shahbaz are accused of “fraudulently and dishonestly” causing a Rs213 million loss to the national exchequer.
