LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Aleem Khan on Tuesday said his party has no fear over the meeting between Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif.
A day earlier, Bilawal paid a visit to Nawaz Sharif at the Kot Lakhpat jail to inquire about his health.
“Imran Khan has already said both these parties are the same,” Aleem Khan said during his meeting with Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi.
Aleem said it was a good thing that Bilawal went to visit an ailing Nawaz Sharif in prison. “There are differences in politics but human relations should remain intact.”
Elahi said no one should be concerned with two opposition parties sitting together.
Following his meeting, Bilawal told reporters Nawaz Sharif looked very ill and on behalf of PPP demanded that the former prime minister is given the best medical treatment. “I hope the prime minister and his government think on humanitarian grounds," Bilawal said.
The prime minister’s spokesman Naeem ul Haque commenting on Bilawal visiting Nawaz said the meeting was political. “In my opinion, I don’t think he [Bilawal] went to visit him [Nawaz] because he is ill, rather it was a political meeting,” Haque told reporters on Tuesday.
“In the history of Pakistan, there is no record of the economy being destroyed as they [PPP, PML-N] did in the last ten years. This is why both the heads of the party are being investigated by NAB,” Haque added.
