Shujaat says Zardari’s health should not be politicised

LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain on Tuesday said that former president and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari’s health should not be politicised as it is a serious issue.

Talking to a delegation led by PML-Q leader Tariq Hassan, Shujaat urged the federal government to provide adequate medical facilities to Zardari, saying the issue could fan provincialism in Sindh.

Earlier on December 4, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had directed the PIMS hospital to constitute new medical board to examine the ailing former president, who is currently in judicial custody in the face accounts case. A two-member special bench comprising IHC Chief Justice Athar Minhallah and Justice Aamir Farooq had took up the bail plea of the PPP leader seeking his release on medical grounds.
