Maryam Nawaz was heard pleading with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in another leaked audio clip to end the health insurance card programme, according to ARY News on Sunday. They were speaking with each other about the PML-N.
According to the latest audio leak, Maryam Nawaz pressed for the termination of the health insurance programme started by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) administration, which provided free medical care to millions of Pakistanis.
She allegedly advised Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister, to stop providing health cards by publicly stating that there was a funding shortfall.
Maryam was heard claiming that Imran Khan, the PTI leader and former prime minister, has only succeeded in implementing the health card scheme. PM Sharif allegedly told her that it wouldn’t be a huge deal in response to this.
