Islamabad [Pakistan], Mar 11 (ANI): Pakistan’s Information and Broadcast Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Monday termed the meeting between Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to be the “U-Turn of the century.”
Earlier in the day, Bilawal met Sharif at the Kot Lakhpat jail in Lahore to inquire about his failing health.
Chaudhry took to Twitter saying, “U-Turn of the Century Grandson of Bhutto reunion with Munh Bola Beta of Zia Ul Haq.”
During his visit, Bilawal was accompanied by senior leaders of his party, including Qamar Zaman Kaira, Mustafa Khokhar, Hassan Murtaza, and Jameel Soomro.
"Today, I visited Mian Sb at Kot Lakhpat jail to inquire about his health. It is a historic day for me today as Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, PPP leaders, and workers were imprisoned in this jail," Bilawal said after holding an hour-long meeting with Sharif.
“Mian Sb has served as prime minister thrice and there are political differences but I feel our cultural values and religion teach us to look after an ailing Muslim. I request on behalf of the PPP that Mian Sb is given the best medical treatment and whatever treatment he has been demanding. I hope the prime minister and his government think on humanitarian grounds," he added. (ANI)
