After visiting ex-prime minister, Bilawal said to reporters that government should provide Nawaz Sharif with adequate medical attention.
“I felt upset when I met Mian Sahab, 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,” Bilawal said.
“I only came here to inquire about Mian Sahab’s health and we mostly discussed that. Obviously, we are politicians and discussed other things, including the Charter of Democracy,” Bilawal further added.
“Mian Sahab and Benazir Bhutto signed the Charter of Democracy in 2006 and it is our failure that it wasn’t fully implemented,” Bilawal said.
When asked if ex-prime minister is vowing to go abroad, Bilawal said, “”I got no impression or inkling that a deal has been made. Mian Sahab is upholding his principles and did not appear to be willing to make a compromise.”
“Mian Sahab said he is ideological and wants to do ideological politics,” he added. “My father spent 11 and a half years in jail and each time it was said that a deal has been struck with former president Pervez Musharraf,” Bilawal further added.
When asked if he would like to meet Maryam, Bilawal said,“at the right time or when it is appropriate I will be happy to meet with Maryam Nawaz Sharif.”
