Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) MNA Fauzia Wahab is in “critical condition” and was admitted into the Intensive Care Unit of a private hospital, Orthopaedic and Medical Institute (OMI), in Karachi on Sunday.
Wahab had earlier undergone a gall bladder surgery on Friday but her condition became serious on late Saturday night. PPP leader Latif Mughal and Senator Saeed Ghani told media that the PPP lawmaker suffered internal bleeding after her initial surgery, after which she underwent a second surgery.
President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and National Assembly Speaker Dr Fehmida Mirza telephoned Wahab’s son, Ali Wahab, and asked about her health.
Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah and MQM leader and Minister for Ports and Shipping Babar Ghauri visited the hospital and inquired about her health.
According to a PPP media cell press release, party leaders have appealed to the nation to pray for her good health. A three-member team of doctors has been constituted by the health department on the directives of President Zardari and Prime Minister Gilani. The team will coordinate with the hospital’s doctors.
