Bilawal reaches Kot Lakhpat Jail to meet Nawaz Sharif
Bilawal was scheduled to meet Nawaz around 2-3pm to inquire about the former premier’s health.
PPP leader Qamar uz Zaman Kaira had submitted a request on Saturday to the Punjab home department on behalf of Bilawal for meeting with Nawaz in jail.
The application reads out as “It would be appreciated if you could kindly manage this visit for today.”
The PPP chairman will be accompanied by senior party leaders including Qamar Zaman Kaira, Mustafa Khokhar, Jameel Soomro and Hassan Murtaza, sources said
It is pertinent to mention here that Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday after wishing good health to the jailed ex-premier Nawaz had asked Punjab CM Usman Buzdar to ensure that every health facility in the country is made available for the former PM to get the treatment of his choice.
I have asked the Punjab CM to ensure that every health facility in the country is made available for Nawaz Sharif to get the treatment of his choice. The federal govt will assist wherever required. I wish him good health.

Nawaz has been imprisoned in Kot Lakhpat jail since December 2018 following his conviction in a corruption reference.
