Firdous hits out at PML-N leaders’ meeting with ‘fugitives’
ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan taking aim at the Sharif family said on Sunday the entire PML-N has gathered at the London residence of fugitives.
Taking to Twitter, she said it is ironic that among the PML-N leaders huddled in London for consultations on legislative matters were those wanted by the law.
As is a right of every prisoner to get medical treatment, it is also the right and obligation of the law to hold violators to account, Ms Awan said.
ستم ظریفی ہے کہ قانون سازی سمیت دیگر امور پر مشاورت میں وہ لوگ بھی شامل ہیں جو پاکستان کے قانون کو مطلوب ہیں۔پوری کی پوری ن لیگ مفروروں کے پاس ڈیرا جمائے بیٹھی ہے۔جس طرح علاج کرانا ہر قیدی کا حق ہے اسی طرح جرم کا حساب لینا قانون کا حق اور تقاضا ہے۔
