HARIPUR: The ruling Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) is all set to address a public rally in Haripur city today.

The party has finalised all arrangements for the meeting, with the venue and main roads decorated with party flags and banners of party leaders.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and other party leaders are expected to address the public gathering here.

A day earlier, the former premier’s son-in-law and PML-N leader Captain (r) Safdar along with Member National Assembly Babar Nawaz Khan MNA visited the venue examine the security arrangements.

Local PML-N leaders sacrificed a goat for their party chief, the other day.

According to a Human Rights Watch (HRW) report released on Friday, political turmoil and instability has engulfed Pakistan after the disqualification of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

“Political turmoil and instability engulfed Pakistan after Nawaz Sharif stepped down as prime minister in July after a five-member Supreme Court bench disqualified him based on investigations into corruption allegations,” says the HRW annual report for 2018 issued on Friday.

According to the report by the international organisation, Nawaz Sharif’s ouster did add to the political instability as the former PM has been constantly been stating himself.
