Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz on Saturday hit out at the government saying the state’s persecution of the Sharif family would soon come to an end.

Maryam made the remarks while speaking to the media during her visit to her ailing father at Lahore’s Jinnah Hospital, Express News reported.

She was accompanied by the party’s president Shehbaz Sharif.

“By the grace of Almighty, he [Nawaz] is feeling much better than before,” she said, adding that, the family was yet to receive her father’s medical report from doctors.

Maryam warns of consequences if Nawaz’s health ‘deteriorates’

Next course of action will only be decided after medical reports come in, she said, adding that the medical board constituted for the former prime minister’s treatment had wanted him to be shifted to the Punjab Institute of Cardiology.

She, however, lamented that authorities decided to shift Nawaz to Jinnah Hospital instead.

On Friday, the three-time prime minister of the country was shifted to Jinnah Hospital from Kot Lakh Pat Jail on instructions of the government.

His PML-N party had slammed the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government for intentionally putting Nawaz through mental torture by shifting him to a hospital which was not even relevant to his ailment.

    All we asked was accountability. Instead we got a wild goose chase with zero result. I have lost faith in gov. I still have faith in Imran. God speed.Recommend
