Pakistan People Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said the government was refusing to shift his father former president Asif Ali Zardari to a hospital.
“Visited my father in jail he is being held without being convicted of any crime. Can confirm news below is true. Govt doctors advised he be taken to hospital but govt is refusing. We are going to court. If anything happens to him govt will be responsible,” Bilawal tweeted.

“Imran khan used to talks about Nazis while mentioning brutalities of Modi in Kashmir, but here is a ‘Niazi’ who is more fascist than them attacking the media and democracy and violating the human rights,” Bilawal said while talking to newsmen outside the Adiala Jail here after meeting his father Asif Ali Zardari and aunt Ms. Faryal Talpur on Monday.
Bilawal said that his father is being denied medical facilities and accused the government of trying to kill him.
He said Zardari and Faryal Talpur are not convicts but Imran Khan has kept them in jail without conviction.
“Niazi is a fascist who is attacking the media, democracy and arresting women but he has forgotten that the PPP never buckled under pressure and always struggled against dictators and sent Ayub Khan, Yahya Khan, Ziaul Haq, and Musharraf packing, then how could this puppet be a source of concern to us,” he said.
A day earlier, Bilawal accused the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government of “attempting to kill” his father by not providing him medical facilities in Adiala Jail.
Earlier this month, Asif Ali Zardari was shifted to Adiala Jail in connection with the money laundering case. His sister was also shifted to the prison.
An accountability court turned down a request for A-class facilities by Zardari and Talpur.
However, they were allowed to avail some facilities such as the use of an air conditioner, television as well as keeping an attendant at their own expense.
