Barred from meeting Nawaz Sharif despite repeated requests: Shehbaz
LAHORE (92 News) – Opposition Leader in National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday claimed that he has been barred from meeting former prime minister Nawaz Sharif at Kot Lakhpat Jail despite repeated requests.
In a tweet, the former Punjab chief minister said that he and other family members used to meet Nawaz twice or thrice a week but now, they are only allowed to see him on Thursdays.
“I was barred to meet with Mian Saheb today again despite of repeated requests. Not permitting mother, sister, brother and daughter to meet Nawaz Sharif is inhumane,” he tweeted.
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
