Shafaat Ali | 5 years ago | Reply The People of this poor country only wants to know about the expenses for this medical check up who are deprived off of medical facilities in country hospitals. Another humble request with the Prime Minister and the whole leadership of the country is that "PLEASE REFRAIN FROM CALL PAKSTAN A MODREN COUNTRY WHICH CAN'T PROVIDE MEDICAL TREATMENT TO ITS PRIME MINISTER".
