The Pakistan Muslim League-N supremo (PML-N) was addressing a rally in Mansehra in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Party officials had earlier that the public gathering would kick-off around 2pm at the Mandi Mawaishian Ground. However, owing to gusty winds and rain, the arrangements at the venue were adversely affected and the event was delayed.
The organiser of the event, Federal Religious Affairs Minister Sardar Mohammad Yousaf, said earlier that a 120 by 40 feet stage has been set up at the venue for the party leadership.
Yousaf, who has been elected to the National Assembly from the area, had added that "come rain or sunshine, the show will go on".
He claimed to have made arrangements of over 100,000 people and vowed to prove this to be Hazara Division’s biggest public gathering.

Addressing the participants, he said that it appeared as if Sadiqabad had been awakening today, the heart of south Punjab had been awakening. "I am very lucky for one does not get such respects from the people easily."
