PML-N leaders express concern over Nawaz’s deteriorating health


LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders on Thursday expressed concern over the health condition of ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

According to details, former defense minister Khawaja Asif, former state minister for information Marriyum Aurangzeb and provincial General Secretary Murtaza Javed Abbasi among others participated in a meeting held at the party’s Model Town office.

While talking to media on the occasion, Khawaja Asif revealed that all the parties are worried about the health of Nawaz Sharif.

“Going abroad for medical treatment will be a personal decision of the PML-N supremo,” he added.

Meanwhile, Ahsan Iqbal said that conservative thinking of the incumbent government is regrettable.

Condemning the government for shifting Nawaz’s daughter Maryam Nawaz back to Kot Lakhpat Jail earlier in the day, PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said that Maryam was sent back to the jail at 5 am, adding that the PML-N vice president was unwell at the time when she was sent to Kot Lakhpat jail.

On Wednesday night, Maryam was admitted to the hospital after a meeting with her ailing father.

She met her father, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, at the same hospital after the Punjab government accepted her request in this respect. Nawaz was admitted to the hospital late on Monday night after his personal physician, Dr. Adnan Khan, had raised an alarm about his critical condition in the accountability watchdog’s custody.

“After an hour-long meeting between the father and the daughter, the hospital administration offered her check-up at the hospital because she had not been feeling well for the last few days,” a source had said.

The sources said Maryam had accepted the administration’s offer to be admitted to the hospital. Doctors conducted her blood tests late at night and her treatment was to begin in the light of the test results.

The PML-N spokesperson said that Maryam was suffering from high blood pressure and her heart rate was not normal at the time when she was sent back to the jail.

She said that doctors had decided to admit the PML-N vice president in the hospital after conducting tests, adding that Maryam has not been feeling well for a few days.

Additionally, Aurangzeb alleged that Maryam’s medical reports were not being provided to her children and her personal physician Dr. Khan.

She said that taking Maryam to jail in this way was another attempt to bring mental agony to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
