Imran wishes ailing Nawaz a speedy recovery

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has prayed for the speedy recovery of ailing former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, according to a party statement on Sunday.

The statement comes after the caretaker government decided to shift Sharif to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims) in Islamabad after irregular ECG and blood reports.

The PML-N supremo’s health deteriorated in Adiala Jail – where he is serving a 10-year sentence handed down by an accountability court in connection with the Avenfield Apartments corruption reference.

Pims officials confirmed that jail authorities had asked them to make necessary arrangements to shift the former PM to the facility.

Consultants of various departments have been visiting the prison and examining the former premier on daily basis.

Officials said they have been asking him to move to hospital, but he was refusing.

A senior official said he is a heart patient and is now suffering from cardiac ischemia.

Nawaz to be shifted to Islamabad hospital

Security arrangements are being made in the hospital and he is expected to be shifted to presidential suite of the cardiac centre.

Pims’ Naeem Malik recommended moving Sharif to a hospital after his ECG showed irregular heart activity and the tests revealed blood clots. The deposed PM is also experiencing pain in both arms.

Back in 2013, when Imran fell from a stage during an election rally in Lahore, Nawaz had visited his political opponent in hospital where he stated that once Khan recovers, the two will play a “friendly match”.

Nawaz, while addressing reporters outside the Shaukat Khanum Hospital, had further stated that the two party leaders had reconciled their differences and intend to work together to rid Pakistan of its problems.
