Nawaz set to start public contact campaign

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has decided to address people through public meetings from next week. The public contact campaign will begin next week from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Development projects will also be inaugurated during the campaign. Sources have said that the PM will hold the first rally in Mansehra and then address the public every week once or twice at different locations. He will lay foundation of various projects related to the welfare of the people during his visits to different cities. According to the analysts, the PM has decided to start the public contact campaign in the wake of increasing pressure from the opposition parties after the Panama leaks. In a related development, Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party head Mahmood Khan Achakzai called on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at his office in Islamabad on Saturday. According to reports, Panama leaks, formation of a judicial commission and other national issues came under discussion at the meeting. On Friday, Prime Minister Sharif announced in a televised address to the nation that he was writing a letter to the chief justice of Pakistan to constitute a judicial commission for an inquiry into the offshore companies owned by his family and the allegations of money laundering against his family members. He said that he would step down if found guilty by the commission. Opposition parties, however, rejected the proposed commission, saying they were not consulted on terms of reference of the commission.
