Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif while addressing a rally in Punjab province's Sargodha on Saturday said that people can change his name if he doesn't take Pakistan ahead of arch-rival India after coming into power.

"If I do not end load shedding crisis in six months, you can change my name," adding "they (Indians) will come to Wahga Border and call Pakistani's their master."

The former Punjab province Chief Minister also said that he would bring Pakistan at par with Malaysia and Turkey, visiting Prime Minister of Malaysia Mahathir Mohamad and President of Turkey Tayyip Erdogan to learn from them on how to make Pakistan a great nation again.

Lodging an attack against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf founder and president Imran Khan, Sharif said that Pakistan cannot become a great nation by voting leaders like Imran Khan.

"Imran Khan alleged corruption against the Punjab government but not a single penny has been proved against me," he said adding "In fact, a corruption case has surfaced from Peshawar metro."

The PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif also defended his elder brother and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who recently came back to Pakistan with daughter Maryam Nawaz to be arrested, leaving behind an ailing wife in London.

Leading up to the General Elections in Pakistan on July 25, several attacks have taken place at political rallies.

On Sunday as well, a suicide attack targeting the vehicle of Ikramullah Gandapur, a candidate of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in the northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa resulted in the death of Gandapur and injury to 4 others.
