ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Saturday asked whether former premier Nawaz Sharif’s primary concern was getting himself release from the prison or the last week of the bail granted to him is being awaited.
He took to Twitter, and stated that it was fourth day of his release and still he was not admitted to a hospital.

“You were honoured by the general public thrice; return their [people] money,” he said.
