While he was doing his MS, he started his real estate business there
which took off really well, but he always associated himself with the business to a degree from where he could pull back; for he loved his motherland and family back home and could never live in USA for good. Hence, he returned to Pakistan in 1984 and started participating in active politics.
He participated in the first elections as an independent candidate for the Provincial Assembly in 1988 and became the Labor Minister. In 1990, he again successfully contested Elections for the provincial assembly and became the Minister for Forestry and Wildlife. He also became President of Muslim League Youth Wing Punjab. In 1993, he again got elected on a PML (N) ticket and became Minister for Health and Population Welfare. This time around he did not contest elections, as the year 2008 was the busiest for him maintaining his rich party portfolios.
He is the Secretary General of Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), and also Advisor to Chief Minister Punjab. He is shouldering one of the most important and critical responsibilities of Muslim League and takes pride in being an active member of the party which has always tried to make a positive difference in every matter that has come up.
