Shehbaz says government is taking ransom

On Thursday, Shehbaz Sharif slammed the government for granting former prime minister Nawaz Sharif a conditional permission to go abroad, provided he deposited surety bonds worth Rs7-7.5 billion. 

Talking to media, the former chief minister said the Sharif family has decided to approach the high court against the government.

My lawyers have prepared the petition and will ask the court to fix an early date for hearing, he said.

The narrow mindedness of Imran Khan and his team has has turned a humanitarian issue into a political one, which is highly condemnable, said the younger Sharif.

'There's no parallel of such dirty politics in the country, said Shairf adding that they are doing this to tell the innocent people that they have extracted money from them.'

Shehbaz said that Nawaz Sharif is the man who came back to Pakistan after a court convicted him, leaving his wife behind who was fighting for her life.

He said that the nation cannot afford any mishap and warned that if anything happens to Mian sb, Imran Khan will be responsible.
