Shortly after Nawaz Sharif was shifted to back to Kot Lakhpat Jail from Services Hospital, where he was being treated for cardiac ailments, Maryam Nawaz said in her tweet, 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.”   Meanwhile, Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) supremo met his mother and daughter at Services Hospital Lahore .
