Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari sought permission from the government to meet Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif in Kot Lakhpat Jail to inquire after his health.

According to a notification, Senior PPP leaders, including Kamar Zaman Kaira, Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar and Jameel Sommoro, will be accompanying Bilawal.

The government has granted permission to Bilawal to meet ailing Nawaz Sharif.

Earlier, Nawaz Sharif had refused medical treatment, a day after Prime Minister Imran Khan ordered the Punjab government to provide top medical facilities to Nawaz Sharif.

Nawaz has told Punjab government representatives that he does not want to go to any hospital for treatment. The provincial government has given Nawaz three options: the Pakistan Institute of Cardiology in Lahore/Rawalpindi and Al Shifa hospital.

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo refused to go to any of the above-mentioned hospitals.

Imran Khan had ordered the authorities to provide ailing former premier Nawaz Sharif with top medical facilities.

Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry had said that Imran Khan has ordered the Punjab government to provide the best health care to Nawaz Sharif, who according to reports is suffering from heart issues.

5 medical boards constituted by the authorities have examined Nawaz and all have advised that he be taken to the hospital for medical treatment.

Prime Minister Imran Khan says Nawaz must be taken to whichever doctor and hospital he wants to go to.

On Wednesday, Nawaz Sharif had said that he would ‘prefer to die with dignity’ than beg the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government for medical help.
