Caretaker government gives an embarssing reply to Shahbaz Sharif letter
LAHORE - Caretaker Law Minister Punjab Zia Haider on Tuesday sent an embarrassing reply to former Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s letter to Punjab Government.
Shehbaz Sharif had written to caretaker set-up seeking availability of facilities proper to ex- PM Nawaz Sharif who is languishing in jail along with daughter Mariam, her spouse Captain (R) Safdar after conviction in Avenfield Reference.
Responding to the demand the law minister said that Nawaz Sharif has been provided facilities already made available to prisoners by PML-N Punjab Government for consecutive two four-year stints Blaming Sharifs regime for the poor state of jails, Mr. Haider asserted that it was onus of PML-N government to take measures towards improving infrastructure and availability of basic jail facilities where they failed to do the needful. He, however, told Shehbaz Sharif that measures by caretaker government were on to providing proper facilities to make jail conditions better.
