Pakistan’s former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was spotted at a restaurant in London, starting a war on Twitter over his alleged health issues.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader was with his family members.
The photo was shared by Federal Minister for Science & Technology Government of Pakistan, Chaudhry Fawad Hussain.
Fawad Hussain said, “Visits to a meeting in the intensive care unit of a London hospital. The treatment of Eat Drink Disease continues to be extremely poignant and all patients are feeling better.”
In Islamabad, a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan had discussed the photo and Nawaz’s issues.
The photo went viral with the opposition and Twitterati sharing their own version of what could have happened.
Twitter user Tariq Mahmood asked Fawad Hussain, “You need to ask this question from your health minister who declared him severely ill. Your government is unable to recover a single penny from looters.”
Strong.boy2020: “Well done Pakistan. For the greatest corrupt political leadership. Ruling in Pakistan and relaxing and enjoyment in foreign countries…”
Adnan Maqsood: I think @fawadchaudhry
wants to see Nawaz Sharif like this. I believe patients have right to enjoy as well like everybody else. How low will you go to prove your incompetence as minister and loyalty to @ImranKhanPTI.”
Maqsood shared an image of a wheelchair patient.
A PML-N official said that doctors have advised Nawaz to step out of the house to get fresh air.
They insist that staying indoors will not be good for his health.
On Dec. 23, 2019, Sharif had sought an extension in his stay abroad for medical treatment.
Candidates for Pakistan's next prime minister are due to file nomination papers on Sunday after incumbent Imran Khan lost a no-confidence vote in parliament, bringing an end to the former cricket star's nearly four years in power.
The permission was given for four weeks but the period can be extended for treatment if the doctors advised it.
Information Minister Shibli Faraz told reporters that it's the responsibility of British authorities not to allow "convicted criminals like Sharif” to remain there. Sharif was sentenced to seven years in prison in a separate case, for corruption and money laundering in 2018.
