Veteran Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Aitzaz Ahsan on Tuesday apologised for his remarks on Kulsoom Nawaz’s illness hours after the former first lady breathed her last at a London hospital.
Earlier this year, the veteran PPP leader had accused the PML-N of politicising Kulsoom Nawaz’s illness. He had claimed the hospital where she was undergoing treatment was owned by the Sharif’s.
Aitzaz tendered an apology while speaking to a local TV channel. Terming her demise a profound loss, he said he would attend the deceased final rites.
Kulsoom, the wife of deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif, passed away in London on Tuesday after suffering from complications related to cancer.
President of PML-N Shehbaz Sharif confirmed the passing of Kulsoom saying, “My sister-in-law and wife of Mian Nawaz Sharif Begum Kulsoom Nawaz is no longer with us.”
Kulsoom remained hospitalised for eight months at Hartley Clinic in the British capital. Nawaz and daughter Maryam were informed of her demise by prison authorities.
