No grudges against Nawaz Sharif, says Imran Khan
Dubai : Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday said that he holds no grudges against the former Prime Minister of Pakistan and his health is more important than the politics in the nation.
Imran Khan's statement came a day after Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Shehbaz Sharif issued a warning that if anything happens to Nawaz Sharif then he would hold the Prime Minister responsible as his administration was "dilly dallying on the removal of Nawaz Sharif's name from the no-fly list", reports The Express Tribune.
Imran Khan claimed that his government has tried to provide all the humanitarian aid to Sharif family and had also given a legal option to strike his name off the Exit Control List (ECL). He said that the government had no issued if the family had approached the court instead of furnishing an indemnity bond for the removal of the former premier's name from the ECL.
However, Khan regretted that the Sharif family was "playing politics" on the 69-year-old politician's health.
The Interior Ministry has decided to grant Nawaz Sharif a "one-time" permission to travel abroad for medical treatment for four weeks provided he submits an indemnity bond to the tune of 7 billion Pakistani rupees.
The PML-N snubbed the condition and challenged it in the Lahore High Court on Friday.
