During Nawaz Sharif's first tenure as Prime Minister, Shahbaz Sharif was admitted into Services Hospital for a minor surgery. My father was serving as MS Services Hospital at the time; he gave Shahbaz Sharif two ‘VVIP’ rooms. That wasn't enough for him, my father was asked to vacate the entire floor and ask the patients in the surrounding rooms to leave their hospital beds because Shahbaz Sharif's security was threatened. I remember my father being extremely upset and stressed out for his other patients, who had to be dislocated, in an already cramped Government Hospital. Mind you there was no terrorism back then and Shahbaz Sharif would have been perfectly safe, with his army of policeman surrounding the two rooms, originally given to him.

Imran Khan is in the ICU ward with seven other patients in a hospital that he built with money that you and I collected for him as children. That is precisely the difference between him and PML-N. They have always displayed a crazy desire for protocol, the sense of entitlement to government assets, complete abuse of power, and disregard for the common man! From my personal experience, another comparison between the mentalities is that Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Mariam Nawaz, while meeting common people during her father’s campaigning, was surrounded by security personal, she had more protocol and security than Michelle Obama, and this is a woman who holds no public office whatsoever, never has and never will!....on the other hand we have Imran Khan's sister’s campaigning around the same areas as Mariam Nawaz, without even one security guard, the only people with them were a handful of their workers, mostly volunteers .That is the difference between 'rulers/master' and leaders!
