Punjab govt cancels decision to shift Nawaz Sharif to PIC
LAHORE (92 News) – Punjab government spokesperson Dr Shahbaz Gill confirmed that the government cancelled the decision of shifting incarcerated prime minister Nawaz Sharif from Service Hospital to Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC).
The minister said that the decision was cancelled on the refusal of former prime minister. He also said that the Pakistan Muslim league-N (PML-N) is playing politics on the bad health of Nawaz Sharif.
“Sometime Nawaz says he wants to go back into jail and on the other hand he says does not want to go in PIC,” the spokesperson said. He further clarified that the team of doctors will examined the former premier at Service Hospital.
Earlier today, Nawaz Sharif refused his shifting from Services Hospital to Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC). The Interior Ministry decided to shift Nawaz Sharif from Services Hospital to the PIC. The room of the three-time premier would be declared as sub-jail.
In its official Twitter, the PML-N said that Nawaz Sharif has asked Medical Superintendent (MS) Services Hospital he did not want to be shifted to PIC, adding that he should be shifted to Kot Lakhpat jail.
“I was shifted to PIC before being taken to Services Hospital,” Nawaz told MS.
