PPP to submit plea for Zardari’s bail on medical grounds
Bilawal Bhutto said that the party will file a petition today
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Monday announced that the party will submit a bail petition for former president Asif Ali Zardari on medical grounds — days after former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was allowed to travel abroad for medical treatment on a bail plea.
Addressing reporters after meeting his ailing father at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), Bilawal said that the party will file a bail plea on medical grounds for the former president who has a case against him in relation to fake bank accounts.
Bilawal said that the PPP will not retreat from its political point of view and file a petition on today Tuesday, adding that Zardari had agreed to filing of the bail petition after being persuaded by his two daughters Bakhtawar Bhutto-Zardari and Aseefa Bhutto-Zardari for over an hour.
