LAHORE: In a subtle reference without mentioning ex-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Chairman NAB on Tuesday said are other people not human for getting medical treatment abroad.
The chairman did not refer to anyone in particular but his remarks come only hours after former prime minister Nawaz Sharif departed from Lahore to London for medical treatment. The PML-N supremo, who has been diagnosed with an immune system disorder, was transported in an air ambulance that arrived at Lahore airport’s Haj Terminal early morning from Doha. Nawaz is convicted in two NAB corruption references, acquitted in one and is currently facing a fourth one.
In another apparent critique of opposition political parties, Iqbal said that it was unfortunate that a child had died in his mother’s lap due to the unavailability of the rabies vaccine in hospitals. He was referring to a video which went viral on social media in September. It showed a horrific incident in Shikarpur where an 11-year-old child died of rabies in his mother’s lap.
