Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Monday (March 11) while speaking to the media after his hour-long meeting with former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in Kot Lakhpat jail felt upset because Nawaz looked very ill. He also requested government to ensure medical facilities.
“Today, I visited Mian Sb at Kot Lakhpat jail to inquire about his health. It is a historic day for me today as Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, PPP leaders and workers were imprisoned in this jail.”
“I was out of town and came across reports that Mian Sb is unwell. Mian Sb has served as prime minister thrice and there are political differences but I feel our cultural values and religion teach us to look after an ailing Muslim. I believe there should be no injustice with anyone and if any prisoner is ill, then it is the government’s responsibility to provide them with the best medical treatment”, he said.
“I felt upset when I met Mian Sb, he looked very ill. I request on behalf of the PPP that Mian Sb is given the best medical treatment and whatever treatment he has been demanding. I hope the prime minister and his government think on humanitarian grounds,” he added. “Keeping a heart patient under pressure and stress is equivalent to torture.”
Bilawal added , “I only came here to inquire about Mian Sb’s health and we mostly discussed that. Obviously we are politicians and discussed other things, including the Charter of Democracy.” “Mian Sb and Benazir Bhutto signed the Charter of Democracy in 2006 and it is our failure that it wasn’t fully implemented. While talking about controversial rumored deal Bilawal said “I got no impression or inkling that a deal has been made. Mian Sb is upholding his principles and did not appear to be willing to make a compromise.”
