04 May, 2019
Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Friday said Nawaz Sharif’s disease is just an excuse to go to London.
“During the past six weeks, Nawaz Sharif has not been admitted to a hospital for even one day,” Awan remarked while addressing a joint press conference along with Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Health Dr Zafar Mirza here. Nawaz Sharif’s disease is just an excuse to go to London, she said.
On the rejection of Nawaz Sharif’s application for extension in bail and permission to go to United Kingdom for treatment from Supreme Court, she said that instead of being admitted to the hospital, Nawaz Sharif focused on protection of business interests, adding that Sharif brothers could not convince the courts with their arguments, how could they convince the masses who can no longer be fooled by hollow slogans. To a question, she said the courts are independent and its verdicts are based on facts.
She said that missing opposition leader Shahbaz Sharif is enjoying his stay in London, but when accountability courts summon him he takes plea of illness. She asked the opposition to join hands with the government to smoothly run the parliament and provide relief to the people of Pakistan.
She said the opposition has changed leader of the opposition and chairman of the Public Accounts Committee which has proved that opposition pleas have been defeated and Prime Minister Imran Khan and Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf’s stance has won.
