Shehbaz, Maryam visit Nawaz at Jinnah hospital


LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leaders Shehbaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz visited former premier Nawaz Sharif at Jinnah Hospital on Saturday, ARY News reported. 

The daughter of incarcerated ex-premier, Maryam, expressed concerns over shifting his father to Jinnah Hospital instead of taking him to Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) against recommendations of the medical board, she asserted while talking to reporters.

The detained supremo of the PML-N, was shifted to Jinnah Hospital of Lahore yesterday owing to his illness, after the government of Punjab on Thursday issued a notification to shift Nawaz Sharif to the hospital from Kot Lakhpat jail.


Sharif had expressed discomfort over facilities being provided in the VVIP block of the hospital. Foolproof security measures were taken to ensure Nawaz’s safe stay in the hospital, beside the setup of a private room.

Moreover, Sharif had rejected two rooms of the hospital, complaining about poor facilities. Later, the PML-N leader was satisfied when his wish of providing a TV in his room was fulfilled. The hospital administration removed a 32 inch LED installed in the room of medical superintendent (MS) to fix it in the PML-leader’s room.

The hospital room of former prime minister has been declared as sub jail.

Allama Iqbal Medical College (AIMC) principal Prof. Arif Tajammul assured yesterday that Jinnah Hospital have facilities to provide treatment to any health problem. He said the hospital have cardiology facilities and good professors to attend a heart patient.
