PM Imran expresses suspicion over Nawaz Sharif’s medical reports
MIANWALI: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday expressed hunch over the medical report of Pakistani doctors declaring former prime minister Nawaz Sharif critically unwell.
Addressing the groundbreaking ceremony of different welfare projects in health, education and communication sectors in Mianwali, PM Imran Khan said he put his medical reports before him, when Nawaz was departing, and he could not believe the reports were of the same man who seemed quite healthy while climbing stairs of the plane.
“The medical report mentioned that the former premier could anytime die. It said he had low platelets, high blood pressure and sugar and he also suffered cardiac arrest.
“We were told that his treatment was not possible in Pakistan and he could pass away anytime if he was not sent abroad,” he said.
The prime minister said this needed to be investigated if he was really critically unwell or not.
Imran said the opposition parties that arrived in Islamabad on container had come for they feared that the economy was on a positive trajectory. He said when a new government started accountability it had to face stiff resistance so that the government was compelled to make compromise with them.
The same happened with former president Pervez Musharraf who struck NRO with Pakistan Peoples Party leader Asif Zardari and Nawaz Sharif after facing opposition from them on initiating accountability.
However, he said, he would not back down for he did not fear of losing his seat.
On education, PM Khan said the more higher education centres you had in the country the more your country would develop.
He said one of his friends in Manchester had promised to build a state-of-the-art private hospital in Mianwali, which was the first constituency that support him in the entire country.
The prime minister also announced that the PTI government had decided to change the system so that whether Imran Khan was in the PM’s office or not the system was running on its own and that system was empowering the local government system.
A finance commission would be established in each province so the funds would be distributed directly into villages rather than to the district chairman who distribute the money according to his desire and will, he said.
“Centre has devolved the authorities to provinces but now provinces need to devolve powers to localities,” he said.
Imran Khan said every nazim of the city would bring his own team to resolve issues of the local people.
