Lahore, 29th November: PML-N leader Shehbaz Sharif said that he felt helpless in prison.
Baaghi TV: Shehbaz Sharif has said on Sunday that he felt helpless in prison when he heard the news of his mother’s demise.
“The world can see how I am spending my days and nights in prison. What can be more devastating than hearing about your mother’s death while you are behind bars?” he said.
Shehbaz Sharif, along with his son Hamza, was released from jail on five-day parole for the funeral of Begum Shamim Akhtar, which took place on Saturday in Lahore’s Jati Umrah area.
Both, father and son, had been arrested and imprisoned after being charged in a money-laundering case.
Talking about the conditions Shehbaz had to face in prison, he said that he was not allowed access to a physiotherapist in jail, nor was a heater installed in his cell despite the cold.
“The government is exacting revenge on me. But this too shall pass,” he said.
Speaking about the current political climate in the country, Shehbaz said that the current government has destroyed the country’s economy.
“The condition of the economy is very bad at the moment. Every sector is at the brink of disaster,” he opined. “Collective efforts, however, can improve the situation for which there is an urgent need for a national dialogue. We need to bring all political parties on the same page.”
