PM must resign, I won't eat till Sarabjit returns, says his sister

New Delhi: Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh's sister Dalbir Kaur, who returned to India from Pakistan on Wednesday, demanded Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's resignation and said she will not eat till her brother returns home. "When my brother returns home, I will eat only then. I want to apologise to his kids that I wasn't able to bring Sarabjit back," Dalbir Kaur said.

Lashing out at the Indian government for not making efforts in bringing back Sarabjit, Dalbir Kaur said, "I am upset with Indian government for not taking stern steps. I kept telling the government of India that there is a threat to his life. Manmohan Singh should resign. He is so corrupt."

She also accused Pakistani doctors of not co-operating with her. Dalbir Kaur said, "Doctors never wanted to hand over Sarabjit's reports to me. They got irritated with me. If I would not worried about my brother, who would be? Zardari? Manmohan?"

"Sarabjit is still alive, he still blinks his eyes. I dont want him to die in Pakistan. If Malala can be taken abroad then why can't Sarabjit be brought to India," she added.

Even as doctors treating Sarabjit in Lahore's Jinnah Hospital said his chances of survival were 'slim', Dalbir Kaur said he can still get up and speak if the right treatment is given to him. "If Sarabjit is given the right treatment he can still get up and give all answers on who did all this with him."

She said she will meet the top brass in the government with her demands. "I will go to Delhi and meet Sonia Gandhi, Salman Khurshid and Sushil Kumar Shinde," Dalbir Kaur said.
