If anything happens to Zardari, govt will be held responsible: Bilawal
KARACHI (92 News) – Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto on Tuesday has warned that If anything happens to Zardari, govt will be held responsible.

“President Zardari has still not been given access to specialist doctors and personal physician. Our family is increasingly concerned about his health. If anything happens to our father this govt will be held responsible,” Bilawal tweeted.
Earlier, the PPP leadership had written an application to form private medical board for the checkup of ex-president.

The PPP said that getting proper medical care is basic and legal right of every prisoner.
Asif Zardari’s platelets also start dropping
