ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to PM on Information and Broadcasting Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan said the government’s intentions should not be doubted and they will act precisely on the judicial relief given to Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif. She said that the government has not made the health of Nawaz Sharif

Shuttlecock but the Sharif Family has made the health of Nawaz Sharif football. She said that the abductors and not facilitators seek ransom. She said that if the judiciary will give relief the government will implement it in letter and spirit.

Responding to a question regarding Mian Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif‘s statement, she expressed that the attitude of the PML-N leader was condemnable. Firdous Ashiq Awan said that Shehbaz Sharif made a misleading propaganda. “Nawaz Sharif did not go to jail for winning a gold medal or a trophy”, she asserted, adding that Nawaz Sharif was found guilty by the courts, and not the government. “Shehbaz Sharif should refrain from fooling the nation with two statements”.

SAPM Awan expressed that the government gave relief to Nawaz Sharif on the basis of humanity. “What Shahbaz Sharif calling ransom is actually convenience”, she added. She said that the eyes of the public should be opened now as his own sons are not ready to mortgage the Jati Umra residence, those for whom he did everything are not ready to submit bonds. “Hospital is the best place to treat a patient but Sharif family is keeping Nawaz in Jati Umra”, she added.

She urged PML-N leadership to fulfill all the legal requirements for treatment of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. She said Prime Minister Imran Khan gave priority to the ailment of Nawaz Sharif on humanitarian grounds and extended the facility of treatment to him.

Meanwhile talking to Ambassador of Iran Mehdi Honardost in Islamabad on Thursday, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting emphasized reinforcement of bilateral media cooperation between Pakistan and Iran to bring people of the two nations closer.

She lauded the services of Mehdi Honardost for promoting and strengthening bilateral relationships between the two brotherly countries.

Mehdi Honardost said Pakistan and Iran enjoy deep and cordial relations that need to be further strengthened by enhancing mutual cooperation in the arena of joint productions, film exchanges and collaboration between state TV channels.

Meanwhile PML-N Spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb, in a statement, said that Nawaz was suffering from side effects caused by an increased dosage of steroids and medicines. The former premier’s blood sugar level has increased due to a high amount of steroids that are being injected in order to raise his platelet count. Nawaz is being administered with insulin four times a day in order to control his blood sugar level, she said.

Doctors have expressed concern over Nawaz’s medical condition and have warned that the “situation will get out of hands if something is not done soon”, Aurangzeb said.
