ISLAMABAD - Former PM Nawaz Sharif’s treatment in London costed national exchequer Rs 34 crore only , Communications Murad Saeed has claimed.

He took to Twitter on Sunday to take aim at former prime minister Nawaz Sharif who is undergoing treatment in London.

He said the former premier’s treatment in London had previously cost the national exchequer Rs340 million.

As Prime Minister Imran Khan came to power, he introduced Sehat Insaf Card under which a household can get free treatment of up to Rs72,0000.
