Shehbaz Sharif and other senior leaders of the PML-N were visibly angry over the police crackdown on their party workers during a press conference held in Lahore on Thursday afternoon.
Scores of party activists faithful to the ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif were arrested in night raids ahead of his return to Pakistan and a showdown with the country's security officials and judiciary.
Maryam, daughter and political heir of the ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif, added that "anyone would have reacted" to such unacceptable act.
To prevent PML-N workers staging a hero's welcome on the streets, authorities said they will arrest the father and daughter upon landing and transport them to the capital Islamabad by helicopter, local media reported.
Recent opinion polls suggest PML-N has lost its lead nationally to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party of arch-rival Khan, whose anti-corruption message has resonated with many Pakistanis. "No one will be allowed to take the law into their own hands", he said.
"But I'm returning to Pakistan leaving my sick wife behind", he vowed.
He said the police are taking only anti-social elements into custody ahead of Sharif's arrival.
Speaking on the bad state of Pakistan's economy, he said our economy is on the verge of decline, the stock exchange is going down, our reserves can support only one month's import now, our investors went back to London and Dubai wondering what would happen on 25 July in Pakistan.
Police say dozens of Sharif's supporters were detained "to avoid violence".
The PTI chief was addressing a gathering in Narowal, where he said that the PML-N leader has asked his workers to receive him at the airport.
Sharif was ordered jailed after failing to explain how the family acquired the London flats in a case stemming from 2016 Panama Papers revelations that showed they owned the apartments through off-shore companies.
"WE ARE WINNING" Sharif's return comes at a time of dwindling fortunes for his party, which one year ago was considered a run-away favourite to retain power.
Shehbaz and other party leaders are mobilising the party workers to reach at the airport in a large number.
"Everyone is involved in this blatant rigging from the caretaker Punjab chief minister to the caretaker interior minister and police officials", the PML-N president asserted, as he warned the officials concerned of "fair judgement" if the PML-N is voted to power again.
