LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President Shehbaz Sharif has said today that despite making several request he was not given permission to meet Nawaz Sharif at Kot Lakhpath prison.
Shehbaz Sharif on his official Twitter handle wrote that “Despite repeated requests, I was not permitted to meet Nawaz Sharif in jail for inquiring about his health.”
He also said in his Tweet that ” I and other family members usually meets Nawaz twice and sometimes thrice a week in jail in order to remain well informed regarding his health condition but now we have been restricted till Thursday only.”
“Depriving mother, sister, brother and daughter of their due prerogative is savagery”, he added in his tweet.
بار بار درخواست کرنے کے باوجود مجھے آج بھی میاں صاحب کی تیمارداری سےروک دیا گیا۔ میں اور خاندان کے دیگر افراد ہفتے میں 2’3 بار ملتے تھے تا کہ ان کی صحت کے بارے میں با خبر رہ سکیں لیکن اب صرف جمعرات تک محدود کر دیا گیا۔ ماں، بہن، بھائی اور بیٹی سے یہ حق چھیننا سراسرظلم و زیادتی ہے
