Rawalpindi (Staff Report): Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif along with his convoy has begun the 2nd day of his 'homecoming rally ' as he departed Rawalpindi and is en route to Jhelum where Nawaz is expected to address a gathering of supporters.

Earlier on Wednesday, chairman PML-N Nawaz Sharif set out from Punjab House, Islamabad after deciding to go home to Lahore via the GT Road earlier.

Prior to his departure, Nawaz held a meeting with top party leaders, including Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal and AJK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider.
