LAHORE – Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, former president Asif Ali Zardari and other senior party leaders, visited former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Sunday to offer their condolences over the demise of his wife, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz.

The PPP leaders met Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif at the family’s Jati Umra residence and expressed profound grief over the former first lady’s passing.

The PPP leaders also paid tribute to Begum Kulsoom’s struggle for the country and democracy.

Sherry Rehman, Qamar Zaman Kaira, Farhatullah Babar, Rehman Malik and Raja Pervez Ashraf were also part of the PPP delegation.

Former prime minister Nawaz said at the occasion that he was most aggrieved over not being with Kulsoom in her last hours.

Begum Kulsoom passed away on September 11 at the Harley Street Clinic in London, where she was being treated for lymphoma. She was laid to rest at Jatih Umrah on Friday.
