Bilawal and his father Asif Zardari have already expressed their reservations regarding Nawaz’s health and the treatment he is getting in jail.

Earlier, Khursheed Shah, a senior leader of the PPP, said that the government will be held accountable for Nawaz’s deteriorating health.

Maryam Nawaz Sharif said that her father has refused to get treatment for his medical condition. She also demanded medical care for her father inside the jail.

The former premier is serving a seven-year jail term in the Al-Azizia case. He says he is suffering from heart ailments. His appeal to have his sentence suspended is being heard in the Supreme Court.
