Preparations for the return of PML-N supremo and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif have entered the next stage.
According to sources, Nawaz Sharif will land at Abu Dhabi International Airport from London on October 21. The same day, he is scheduled to fly to Lahore from Abu Dhabi.
Nawaz has been booked on a business class flight EY243 of Etihad Airways in advance, the sources added. They further said the Etihad Airways flight will land at Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore at 6:25pm.
Those accompanying Nawaz will reportedly be his staff members, personal advisers, Dr Adnan and Senator Irfan Siddiqui.
According to the sources, many PML-N leaders and former lawmakers have also booked seats on the flight from Abu Dhabi to Lahore.
Several PML-N members from different walks of life are expected to reach the Abu Dhabi airport to welcome Nawaz, the sources added.
Meanwhile, in a bid to organise an unforgettable welcome, a PML-N leader has announced a unique incentive: a brand new Honda 125 motorcycle for individuals who bring large numbers of people to welcome their leader.
A viral video circulating on social media shows a prominent PML-N worker, whose identity remains undisclosed, making an exhilarating announcement during a public gathering.

Flanked by large images of Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz, the party worker declared: "This is a big announcement. I hope my team will win. You are all being informed that whoever brings more people to welcome Nawaz Sharif on October 21 will get a Honda 125 each."
Earlier, before returning to Pakistan from London, former finance minister Ishaq Dar had claimed that the former prime minister will not have to go to jail upon his return to Pakistan, as the cases against him were fake.
Dar said this while talking to SAMAA TV exclusively in London. The PML-N senator further said a legal strategy had been prepared to deal with the cases against Nawaz.
