According to news reports, Pakistan Muslim League – Functional (PML-F) Chief Pir Pagara will fly to London in chartered air ambulance for medical treatment.

From the last few weeks Pir Pagara was in Pakistan’s best private hospital Aga Khan Hospital. It is revealing that when President of Pakistan and Pakistan Peoples Party Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari fell ill he also went abroad for treatment and now Pir Pagara is also going abroad for medical treatment. When Pir Pagara was in hospital in Pakistan, he opted for private hospital and not government. It seems that Pakistan government hospitals are only for poor people who cannot bear the expenses of going abroad.
