KARACHI: Former prime minister and the head of his faction of the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz Sharif will be arriving in Karachi today.
Sharif will address a press conference in the morning to announce senior leaders, including former provincial minister Haji Shafi Mohammad Jamot, joining the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).
According to party provincial leader Dr Taj Mohammad, Sharif is also expected to do another press briefing at the residence of PML-N leader Liaquat Jatoi, where more announcements about new members will be made.
Sharif’s last visit to Karachi was in January this year to attend the election of the Sindh council. However, there will be no announcement on Uzair Baloch, the head of the banned Peoples Amn Committee, who was earlier speculated to be joining the PML-N.
He is scheduled to travel to the Badin district later in the day to address a public gathering.
In the last few months, Sharif has made a number of visits to Sindh, addressing rallies and meeting nationalist and anti-government leaders in Sukkur, Shikarpur and Jacobabad. Just last week, he addressed a rally at Sehwan Sharif, and hit out at the government for not doing anything for the poor people of the province.
