PM Imran says ‘sincere prayers’ are with ailing Nawaz


Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Thursday that his “sincere prayers” are with ailing former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif, despite the political differences between the two.

“Political differences notwithstanding, my sincere prayers are with Nawaz Sharif for his health,” the premier tweeted.

He said he has directed all concerned officials to ensure the provision of “the best possible health care and medical treatment” to Sharif, who is under treatment at Lahore’s Services Hospital.

The prime minister’s tweet comes a day after he sought a detailed report from the Punjab government regarding the former premier’s health.

He had also directed the Punjab government “to ensure that Nawaz Sharif gets the best possible care in accordance with the wishes of his family”.
