Kulsoom, who has been married to Sharif for 46 years, has largely stayed out of politics.

Sharif's journey from Islamabad to Lahore via GT Road that started on August 9 has been described by many as a show of defiance following his disqualification by the Supreme Court.

"I will be on roads to make sure the birth of a new Pakistan where prime minister is not humiliated this way. When a candidate files nomination papers, he/she has to submit them with signatures of party chief in letter head" he said in a conversation with the leading daily. "Is this removing me at all?"

A defiant Nawaz Sharif criticised on Thursday the judiciary for forcing him to quit as prime minister, saying it was an "insult" to 200 million people of Pakistan that their elected leader was unceremoniously ousted with a single stroke of pen.

"I can not accept this joke".

Mr Sharif added: "I want to ask why they ousted me". "If I was corrupt then I would have been ashamed", he said. "I have done nothing wrong".

Khurram Dastgir said after the decision of July 28, every patriotic Pakistani was asking who would protect the future of Pakistan. "I will vote for him my whole life", agreed 55-year-old Niaz Ahmed, from Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

Sharif has a rocky history with the country's military establishment.

Sharif vowed that he would not sit back home.

The people responded in unison with a big "No", prompting Sharif to ask them to stand by him. Although Chaudhry and Aziz were very visible during the Panamagate proceedings in the Supreme Court, it is PML-N stalwarts such as Shehbaz Sharif, Khawaja Asif and Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan who were conspicuous by their absence.

"What I see in Muridke is the real change". "You are great", he told them.

He added that until the mandate of people is not respected, Pakistan can not progress.

Political observers believe that Kulsoom knows the complex nature of Pakistani politics as she led the PML-N in hard time and toured the country to seek support for her husband.

It was still unsure if the caravan will reach its destination on Friday night as Sharif is set to address a few public rallies, including in Gujrat and Gujranwala.

The motorcade of Pakistan's former prime minister hit and killed a 13-year-old boy at a rally where Nawaz Sharif was protesting his recent disqualification from office.

As he came out of the Punjab House in Islamabad on Wednesday, he was greeted by supporters lining up on the both sides of road.
