PML-N doing politics on Nawaz Sharif’s health: Fawad Chaudhry

Govt allowing Nawaz to travel abroad is big step: Fawad

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has criticized Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders over the medical treatment of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, saying they were doing politics on the health of their supremo.

On a social media website Twitter, the minister said “PML-N leaders and their supporters in media used to say day and night how critically ill Nawaz Sharif is? and if he was not let go abroad his life would be in peril”.

Since yesterday, these people have been saying that it was the government that had sent Sharif abroad and ask how could they ask him to fly back home. This is the deceit and fib on the basis of which the PML-N was formed, Fawad added.

On Saturday Pakistan had approached British authorities to repatriate PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif, who is currently in London for his medical treatment.

Pakistan’s High Commissioner to United Kingdom Mohammad Nafees Zakaria wrote a letter to the British authorities, demanding to handover the former prime minister to the country.

Addressing a press conference along with provincial minister Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan and PM’s aide Shahbaz Gill, Shahzad Akbar claimed that PML-N supremo was a convict and the United Kingdom’s government had been informed about him being an absconder.

Shahzad Akbar further said that Nawaz Sharif had left the country for treatment on certain conditions and that none of these had been fulfilled. “He was permitted to get medical treatment from abroad subject to returning within the specific time period,” he added.

“Secondly, he was instructed to submit periodical medical reports and updates to the court and the government. However, no such reports were submitted to the court or the provincial government,” he had remarked.
