The Only Meeting Of Imran Khan With Asif Ali Zardari
Imran Khan said that in 1989 he accompanied by his friend Tariq Shafi went to BaNazeer"s residence Bilawal House in Kaeachi to request her for cooperation in funds raising for Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital. Banazeer was busy so they were given chance to meet Asif Ali Zardari. He was expecting that due to his friendly relations with Banazeer from Oxford his appeal would be heard sympathetically.
Asif Ali Zardari met us warmly and praised Imran Khan apparently. But, he did not offer any help for the hospital. Instead he had been talking all the time to his friend Tariq Shafi, who belonged to a big Textile Industry owner's family. He remained busy in convincing Tariq to install two factories in Sind because he (Zardari) wanted to provide employment to some people. The husband of Banazeer , Asif Ali Zardai, Imran Khan said did not cooperate for any donations to the hospital afterwards too. Asif Ali Zardari and Banazeer wished to inaugurate the hospital as chief guests that was not accepted by Imran Khan, because the decision for the inauguration of the hospital had already been done in favor of the first cancer patient belonging a poor family, 10 year Sameera Yousuf.
