Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz requested on Saturday the Chief Justice of Pakistan to also focus on hospitals of Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.


Maryam was referring to the Supreme Court’s remarks today while hearing the suo motu notice on the deplorable state of public hospitals in Punjab.

Chief Justice Nisar is heading a two-member bench in the apex court’s Lahore Registry that is hearing the case.

Maryam tweeted that she requests the chief justice to spare some attention to Sindh and KP from where people visit hospitals of Punjab for treatment.

During today’s hearing, the chief justice came down hard on the Punjab government, stating that instead of providing free medicines in hospitals, the provincial government is spending millions of rupees on promotion campaigns in the media.
