Where are new Platelet reports: Firdous Awan questions Nawaz’s integrity

Special Adviser to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcast, de-facto Information Minister, Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan, raises doubts on the intentions of Sharif family for not being able to send even one medical report back to Pakistan when Nawaz had been seen in London restaurant. Instead of sending the clatter of cutlery, send us medical reports, Ms. Awan thundered.

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting, Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan while rebuking PML-N has said that “Reports on spoons and forks clattering in London’s restaurants reach Pakistan more frequent than reports on the “platelets” of Nawaz Sharif “.

In a tweet pointing a jibe at the former premier, SAPM said “Nawaz Sharif left for London by giving a statement about his chronic ailment. But he has not been admitted to any hospital in London. His medical reports have also assumed the status of “Qatari letter” They say medical reports of Nawaz Sharif cannot be sent unless he is admitted into the hospital”.

Ms. Awan added that whatever game Sharifs were playing at, whatever rules they made, the game still continues. “Send along the menu cards of London’s restaurants with the medical reports [of Nawaz Sharif] so that people [of Pakistan] could assess the situation better,” she said in a tweet.

Ms. Awan was referring to the viral images of the Sharif family in a restaurant having dinner while his sons defended the former premier that Nawaz’s doctors advised “Hawa-Khori”. Speculations started flying in Pakistan as Sharif left the country on the basis of grave health grounds which could not be treated in Pakistan.

No satisfactory reports have yet reached the government regarding Nawaz’s health, even after Punjab Health Minister, Dr. Yasmin Rashid, contacted Nawaqz’s personal doctor and asked for reports.

In another tweet, Firdous Ashiq Awan warned the PML-N authorities that Hamza Shehbaz’s bail is not an acquittal. We [PTI government] won’t allow anyone to shy away from facing the truth.

SAPM Awan was referring to the bail granted to Hamza Shahbaz by Lahore High Court in Ramzan Sugar Mills and money laundering cases.

“Nobody will be allowed to whiten the black [money]. This nation will no longer be fooled and the truth is destined to reveal itself” Firdous added.

Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcast threw shade at Maryam Nawaz by targeting Ahsan Iqbal’s demand to let Maryam Nawaz go abroad to join Nawaz Sharif. She schooled Ahsan Iqbal of the equal rights for every citizen of Pakistan. Ms. Awan said that “Mr. Ahsan Iqbal, every prisoner in the jails o Pakistan has daughters too. They question us about the discriminatory behavior [towards their fathers].

SAPM noted that “Law cannot be driven on the whims of powerful. Law will be upheld at any cost”.

Nawaz Sharif Health Condition

Former premier Nawaz Sharif was granted bail on medical grounds by Islamabad High Court for eight weeks [that ended in December]. Mr. Sharif had been serving a sentence in the Al-Azizia reference when he was granted bail and had subsequently left Pakistan for London for medical treatment.

The government had asked the Sharif family to pay Rs.7 billion as surety bonds, turned down by the court and criticized by the Opposition.

Several questions were raised regarding the “critical” health conditions of Nawaz Sharif when he was videotaped trotting on the staircase leading to the interior of the plane taking him to London. Interior Minister Brig (R) Ijaz Ahmad Shah said “There are discrepancies between the medical reports of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, and the behavior he exhibited while departing for London for his medical treatment.

Many suspected of a deal between Nawaz and the establishment that allowed him to leave for London. SAPM Awan warned the Sharif family of playing against the rules.

It remains to be seen if the former premier will return to Pakistan because, as of yet, he himself and his “alleged’ health condition seem not to allow him to travel back.
