LAHORE: Deposed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter, Maryam Nawaz Sharif said on Thursday that the government had politicized her father’s health.
In a series of tweets after Nawaz Sharif was shifted back to Kot Lakhpat Jail from Services Hospital, Maryam said the government would be responsible if the former prime minister’s health deteriorates. “I remained quiet but if my father’s health is played with or if it is politicized and God forbid it deteriorates, the government will be responsible,” she tweeted.
She stressed that no request had been made to the government for Nawaz’s medical treatment, and none would be made in the future.
In another tweet, Maryam said one after another medical boards were formed. “First Nawaz Sharif was shifted to PIC, then to Services Hospital where there is no cardiac unit and then they tried to shift him again to PIC. He refused to be shifted stating it wasn’t appropriate for him to be wandering around nor he was ready to be insulted and asked the authorities to shift him back to jail.”
The deposed prime minister was shifted back from the Services Hospital to Kot Lakhpat Jail on Thursday.
