Pak PM Shahbaz Sharif offers peace to Imran Khan

“If someone is being wronged then I believe the scales of justice should tip in his favour.” [being victimised]”There is no difference of opinion – whether it is a politician or a person from any field,” Geo News quoted Sharif as saying.

Sharif lamented that when he was in the opposition, he had again proposed talks with Khan but such slogans were raised again.

“So who is responsible for this bitterness? [between politicians]”We don’t even shake hands anymore,” he said.

Sharif, 72, also narrated his ordeal of facing harassment by the Khan government and said he was in jail when his mother died.

He said that despite suffering from cancer and having spinal problems, he was taken to courts in ordinary prison vans, further worsening his condition, but he never complained.

Responding to Prime Minister Sharif’s remarks, Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly Omar Ayub reiterated that the PTI will talk to the government only if Khan and other jailed leaders and activists are released from jail.

“This must be on your mind: You torture our workers, you have kept our women workers in prison vehicles at 45 degrees Celsius temperature. My Prime Minister Imran Khan has been kept in a death cell, there is a furnace-like atmosphere there,” he said amid sloganeering from the ruling party.
