Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said that millions of people had voted to elect their leader, but unfortunately a few had conspired to overthrow the democratic government.

"A 13-year-old boy who had came to see the rally was hit by a auto in the convoy", Sajid Ali, head of the local Lalamusa police station, told AFP.

Sharif said that he wants people to support him for the betterment of the country. "Was the treatment meted out to Nawaz Sharif appropriate", he asked and the crowd responded with resounding "no".

Sharif hopes to bring tens of thousands more into the streets in Lahore but it is not yet known when he will arrive in the Punjabi capital.

Sharif is traveling in a bombproof vehicle especially designed for the journey, meant as a show of strength after the Supreme Court's decision has left his ruling party scrambling to replace him.

Umair Mazhar, 26, insisted no allegations of corruption had been proven against the former leader.

Sharif was the 15th prime minister in Pakistan's 70-year history-roughly half of which has been spent under military rule-to be ousted before completing a full term.

But fresh questions have arisen over the PMLN's original plan to eventually replace Abbasi with Sharif's younger brother, Shahbaz.

Khalid, from Chak Pirana village of Gujrat, was rushed to a nearby hospital on Friday afternoon after he was hit by motorbike on Grand Trunk (GT) Road where the ex-PM is rallying towards his hometown after being disqualified by the Supreme Court for hiding his undeclared assets.

When asked about Kulsoom's candidacy, Rashid said that the difference between them is that she is a "hardworking middle-class woman who will represent the ordinary people of the country", whereas Kulsoom comes from what her daughter, Maryam Nawaz, has called the "ruling family". He said that the warm welcome of Nawaz Sharif proves that he is the only national leader who lives in the hearts of every Pakistani and the nation is fully supporting the PML-N leadership for the completion of development journey.
