ISLAMABAD: According to the private news channel, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Senator Ishaq Dar stated on Friday that Nawaz Sharif, the party’s leader and three-time prime minister, will spend an hour in Islamabad upon his arrival from the United Arab Emirates.
Nawaz, who has been living in self-imposed exile since 2019, departed for London due to health reasons in the midst of his seven-year prison sentence. On October 21, the older Sharif would depart for Pakistan through Dubai.
Ishaq Dar refuted the notion that Nawaz Sharif is receiving “favors” at an unofficial media discussion in Islamabad, adding that the courts have decided his cases in accordance with the law.
“Nothing strange happened,” he quoted as saying. The former finance minister said due to security reasons he could not confirm where will Nawaz Sharif’s aircraft land.
Ishaq Dar said the former prime minister will leave for Lahore after staying nearly an hour in Islamabad after landing.
Earlier in the day, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA allowed a special plane carrying PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif to land in Pakistan.
A notification was issued by the CAA Director Transport in this regard. The preparations to accord PML-N supremo a warm welcome by PML-N are underway in full swing.
