Imran Khan believes that Nawaz Sharif is protesting against the Supreme Court verdict against him
Contrary to the popular belief that Punjab's Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif would contest the elections, Kulsoom Nawaz submitted her nomination papers on Friday.
The Minister was talking to media in Gujranwala where the "Lahore Bond Caravan" of the former prime minister was stopped over and spent the night there.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Pakistan's new premier who replaced Sharif a week after his July 28 disqualification, has ordered special measures for Sharif's safety.
Supporters gathered in Gujrat voiced frustration over the ex-prime minister's ouster.
Pakistan will celebrate 70 years of independence from British rule on August 14 but the country has never had a full term prime minister with numerous governments being interrupted by either military coups, judicial disqualification, or presidential decree.
The notification also referred to the Supreme Court order and observed that Article 15 of the PML-N's own party constitution binds appointment of a party president within a period of one week.
He criticised the apex court verdict, saying the judges said there was no charge of corruption, then asked why he had been disqualified if there is no case of misappropriation. Someone tell me why I was ousted.
It is a question of respect for vote of 20 crore people.

Sharif's convoy moved at very fast pace from Rawalpindi to Jhelum, at times speeding at 120 kms per hour.
Yesterday, he resumed his travel from Rawalpindi and reached Jhelum in the evening and addressed an even bigger rally there.
The event remained largely peaceful, though Sharif's supporters assaulted the crew of two local TV stations that had been critical of him during the court proceedings, police official Hafeez Khan said. "I would not allow anyone to trample your right to elect leaders of choice", Sharif said.
On Tuesday, the Election Commission, through a notice, told the PML-N that Nawaz Sharif can not lead the party after disqualification under the Political Parties Order 2002.
"This gathering here serves as a referendum".
Pointing out that gathering here serves as a referendum, he claimed that the court of the people of Pakistan has given its verdict in his favour.
Sharif also said that he respects the decision despite serious reservations. "Are you qualified to disqualify me?"
"I am going home and I do not want you to get me restored".
