Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan has said that the government will move court if medical reports of Nawaz Sharif are not submitted timely as looters of the national exchequer are enjoying in London in the name of treatment.

Addressing a press conference in Sialkot on Sunday, Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said that the PML-N’s supremo illness is linked with his removal from power.

She announced that government will approach court if Nawaz Sharif’s medical report is not submitted within deadline given by the Punjab government.

The Special Assistant to PM said that Shehbaz Sharif is involved in conspiracies to mislead people of Pakistan. She informed the media that officers involved in wheat smuggling had been arrested and said that objective of government’s policies was to provide relief to the public.

Dr Awan said that past rulers were involved in politics for personal gains. However, Prime Minister Imran Khan is different as he wants to make institutions independent.

She welcomed investment of overseas Pakistanis and termed them as true soldiers of Imran Khan.

Medical report sought

The Punjab government had sought fresh medical reports of PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif who is currently in London on bail for his treatment. The former PM had submitted an application to the Punjab government seeking extension in his stay in London.

Earlier, the provincial government had termed the reports of Nawaz Sharif insufficient and asked him to present latest health-related documents.
