It is worth mentioning here that the federal government on Wednesday had asked for experts' opinions related to the medical reports of PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif.

In the light of the federal cabinet’s decision, the attorney-general for Pakistan (AGP) had written a letter to the Punjab government directing it to receive an opinion from relevant experts regarding the medical reports of former premier Nawaz Sharif submitted in Lahore High Court (LHC) and assess whether his condition has improved.
