LONDON: The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shahbaz Sharif on Wednesday said Nawaz Sharif’s health situation is still critical and they have to change the treatment procedures twice owing to the absence of his daughter Maryam Nawaz. He said Nawaz Sharif has refused to undergo surgery until Maryam is with him. 

He said that Maryam Nawaz should have been with Nawaz Sharif at that moment but she is not allowed to travel abroad to meet her ailing father. He said Nawaz’s current health condition is critical owing to complex and deadly diseases faced by him.

Shahbaz said Nawaz has already undergone open heart surgeries twice and during ongoing treatment at Royal Brompton Hospital, he was diagnosed with severe contractions in his veins. He said a large part of Nawaz’s heart remained affected from it.

Shahbaz said that Nawaz was in jail when Kulsoom Nawaz died battling cancer bringing a negative impact of it on his health condition. He said it was Maryam Nawaz who remained a source of courage for the PML-N leader at that time but it is unfortunate that she is not allowed to visit her ailing father at this critical juncture.

The PML-N president demanded that Maryam Nawaz should be allowed to visit Nawaz Sharif on humanitarian grounds immediately as cardiac catheterization process was delayed twice due to her absence. He called for respecting the right to treatment of Nawaz Sharif, saying that any further delay would minimise treatment options for the medics.

Maryam Nawaz has already submitted a plea with the Lahore High Court (LHC) seeking permission to travel abroad to visit her ailing father.
