Bilawal meets Nawaz at Kot Lakhpat prison, requests PM to act on humanitarian grounds


LAHORE (ENN) Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari following the foot prints of Benazir Bhutto met Nawaz Sharif at Kot Lakhpat prison here on Monday.

He requested Prime Minister Imran Khan to provide the incarcerated former premier with the best medical treatment.

Speaking to the media after his hour-long meeting with Nawaz, Bilawal said, “Today, I visited Mian Sb at Kot Lakhpat jail to inquire about his health. It is a historic day as Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto was imprisoned in this jail.”

“I was out of town and there were reports that Mian Sb is unwell. I believe that Mian Sb has served as prime minister and there are political differences but I feel our cultural values and our religion teach to look after an ailing person.

“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 he asks for. I hope the prime minister and his government think on humanitarian grounds,” he added.

Senior party leaders, including Qamar Zaman Kaira, Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar, Jameel Soomro and others accompanied Bilawal during his visit.

PPP leader Kaira had submitted a request to the Punjab home department on behalf of Bilawal to meet the incarcerated former premier on Saturday.
