LAHORE: Arrangements to discharge former prime minister Nawaz Sharif from the Services Hospital have been finalized.
The PML-N supremo is reluctant to be shifted to the jail, while interior ministry wanted to shift him to the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) in light of his medical report.
“I don’t want to shift to PIC again as i have packed my luggage, shift me to the jail again,” Nawaz said to MS of the hospital.
Sharif’s blood pressure and sugar level were tested earlier in the day, while Maryam Nawaz also visited the hospital to see his ailing father.
Yesterday, the reports of Nawaz Sharif’s medical tests were forwarded to the Ministry of Interior to determine whether the deposed prime minister should be moved to hospital.
Sources said the reports contained medical history of Sharif, however the latest test results reveal little blockages in his arteries and he is also suffering from blood pressure, diabetic and kidney problems.
Nawaz Sharif was shifted to Services Hospital, Lahore from Kot Lakhpat Jail on Feb 2 amid tight security. He was hospitalised on recommendation of a special medical board constituted by the Punjab government to examine his health condition
