LAHORE - The PML-N workers in the City registered a very low key protest on the conviction verdict against the former Prime Minister Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif , his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son in law, Capt (r) Safdar.

The life in City remained as usual and at nowhere a notable public agitation was seen, although the administration had deployed the police and the law-enforcers at public and commercial sites as well as outside the election offices of the PML-N candidates.

It appeared that the people were disinterested about what had happened to the leader of a mainstream political party.

Interestingly, no protest was observed at the corner meetings of the N league candidates rather at the party convention in the NA-123 League workers were seen dancing to the tune of drum beats before arrival of Hamza Shehbaz Sharif.

Only a slight gathering was seen outside the Lahore Press Club while a bunch of around three dozen PML-N supporters led by Ch Zulfiqar and Mirza Javed and former MPA Rukhsana were seen raising slogans outside the main Secretariat of the party at Model Town.

It was seen outside the LPC protest the participants were asking the workers to reach the protest venue but they did not receive a warm response as the gathering of N workers continued to be thin.
