Fawad hits Sharifs after London breakfast photo


ISLAMABAD: A photo purportedly of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif having breakfast with members of the Sharif family at London’s upscale restaurant has gone viral on social media.
Sharing the photo on his official Twitter handle, Federal Minister for Science & Technology Fawad Chaudhry took a dig at the ex-premier who is said to be undergoing treatment in the British capital.
Describing the photo, he said: “Scenes of a meeting taking place at an intensive care unit of London hospitalā€¦..Eat and drinkā€¦” He further wrote, “Treatment of [Nawaz’s] ailment is underway with a great focus and all patients are feeling better.”
Shehbaz, former finance minister Ishaq Dar and other members of the Sharif family can be seen in the photo. Whereas, a person whose back is facing the camera appears to be ex-PM Nawaz Sharif.
Last week, former Afghan president Hamid Karzai had paid a visit to Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader Nawaz Sharif in London to inquire after his health.
The ex-Afghan president was accompanied by Afghanistan’s ambassador to the United Kingdom S. Tayeb Jawad.
After his visit, Mr Karzai spoke to reporters outside the apartment building saying: “I am delighted to have visited my brothers, Mian sahib and Shahbaz Sharif sahib. I came to inquire about the health of my good friend Mian sahib. I found him in good health.” – NNI
