ISLAMABAD : Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry on Sunday assailed leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) for holding the government responsible for allowing former premier Nawaz Sharif to travel abroad for treatment.
Taking to the popular microblogging site Twitter, he 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, he added.
It is to mention here that Pakistan has approached British authorities to repatriate three-time prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (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.
The development came a day after Federal Minister for Information Senator Shibli Faraz said that it is necessary to bring back former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to Pakistan and the government will ask the Foreign Office (FO) to take steps for his return.
