Begum Kalsoom Nawaz wife of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif regains conscious after month's long coma confirmed her son Hussain here in London on Thursday.

"But I'm returning to Pakistan leaving my sick wife behind", he vowed.

"She (Kulsoom) has opened her eyes after exactly one month".

In reply to another question about placing the names of Mr Sharif and Ms Maryam on the ECL, he said the decision could only be taken when they arrived in Pakistan.

Maryam Nawaz also wrote on her Twitter account that her mother opened her eyes for a few seconds and we don't know either she recognized us or not but thanks to Almighty Allah that he has answered our prayers.

In a video message Friday reportedly from aboard his aircraft en route to Pakistan, Sharif said he was returning knowing he would be taken directly to prison. I am aware that I have been sentenced to 10 years [in prison] and I will be taken to a jail cell straight away.

According to Lahore's City Traffic Officer, the plan will be executed before the rally of the PML-N, while more than 200 wardens will be deputed to maintain the flow of the traffic.

Kulsoom Nawaz, whose health has been described as "highly critical" by doctors, has been undergoing treatment at the Harley Street Clinic in London.

Nawaz Sharif was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment and fined eight million pounds in the Avenfield Reference case by an accountability court, which awarded seven years jail to Maryam besides a fine of two million pounds.

Americans advised to 'keep low profile' during Trump visit to the UK

All arrangements have been made to arrest the three-time Prime Minister and his daughter by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team.

Party spokesperson Marriyum Aurenzeb told PTI that police arrested the workers, mostly from Lahore, to stop them from welcoming Sharif at the airport.

The caretaker government in Punjab has intensified the crackdown against PML-N ahead of the Sharifs' homecoming rally.

PML-Q senior central leader Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi said Nawaz, who attacked the Supreme Court of Pakistan, is still doing politics of chaos even today.

"No logic can defend the 30-day detention of our workers", Shehbaz upheld.

Until Thursday, the interim government had arrested over 300 PML-N workers under the Maintenance of Public Order Ordinance ahead of the former PM's expected arrival.

Lamenting that the party is not being allowed to campaign and is "being pushed against the wall", Shehbaz said, "No one complain to me later if we are not given a level playing field". "We will not accept the results of the July 25 polls if pre-poll rigging is not stopped", said Nawaz Sharif's brother Shahbaz Sharif.

"The caretaker setup is a salaried puppet", he said.
