The people of Jati Umra, the native village of former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and former Pakistan’s Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, are praying that Shahbaz Sharif should become the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
The name of Shahbaz Sharif has emerged as the United Opposition’s candidate for the selection of the new Prime Minister after the no-confidence motion was passed against the Imran Khan government in Pakistan.
This has created happiness among the villagers in Jati Umra, the native village of the Sharif family. People in his native village are praying for him to become the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Jati Umra is the village of the ancestors of former Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif and his brother Shahbaz Sharif.
Village sarpanch Rachpal Singh, former sarpanch Dilbag Singh and Jaspal Singh said on Sunday Ardas was offered to the Sharif family in the Gurdwara Sahib of the village, which used to be the family’s ancestral mansion.
Elderly Gyan Singh said that I did not meet Nawaz Sharif but I am well aware of his family’s attachment to the village. The family moved to Lahore in 1932.
During the partition of the country in 1947, a line was drawn between the two countries, but whenever there was a crisis in the Sharif family, the family’s offerings were made to the Gurudwara Sahib in this village.
Gurdwara Sahib’s granthi Kuldeep Singh, rural Lakha Singh, Nirvail Singh, Bachan Singh and Kewal Singh told that in 1932 when the Sharif family went to Lahore, they set up a factory there. Before the partition of the country, the people of the village used to work in his factory.
The Sharif family is so much in love with their native village Jati Umra that they have settled Jati Umra on 175 acres near Lahore in Pakistan. The Sharif family has named their home near Lahore Jati Umra in memory of their ancestral village.
