Speaking to journalists, Sheikh Rasheed said Zardari has been given bail by the Islamabad High Court on medical ground, “Its good.”
He said new Chief Election Commissioner should be neutral as the opposition did not accept the results of 2013 and 2018 general elections, and added those demanding early elections should be ashamed of their demand.
Replying to a query, the minister strongly condemned the violent attack over Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC), yesterday, which reportedly claimed lives of seven patients.
“The lawyers have proved ignorance.” Pakistan has become laughing stock due to their act.

The petitioner was directed to submit Rs10 million surety bonds in the court. Asif Ali Zardari is facing corruption charges and currently, he is in the PIMS hospital owing to his worsening health.
