Punjab Home Dept expresses reservations about Nawaz Sharif’s medical reports
LAHORE/MULTAN (92 News) – The Punjab Home Department has expressed its reservations about the medical reports of former premier Nawaz Sharif who is on bail for his medical treatment.
According to sources, the Punjab Health Department will constitute a medical board to examine the medical reports.
Addressing a press conference in Multan on Wednesday, Punjab Health Minister Yasmin Rashid asked Nawaz Sharif to get treatment and return to the country. “The government and the judiciary had given the relief to Nawaz Sharif on humanitarian grounds,” she said.
The minister said that the government has not been provided with the reports of Nawaz Sharif.
She said that no government hospital was being privatized. “Laboratories in government hospitals are not being privatized,” she added.
On Tuesday, the Punjab government had rejected the medical report of former premier Nawaz Sharif for extension in his bail. The Punjab government has also raised objections, directing Dr Adnan to send latest medical reports of Nawaz Sharif.
Punjab Health Minister Dr Yasmin Rashid said that former diagnosis of Nawaz Sharif had been shown in the report. She said that Nawaz Sharif is enjoying life, but his doctors say his condition is deteriorating.
“Nawaz Sharif’s bail for treatment expired on December 25. His lawyer Khawaja Haris sent the medial report on December 27. A meeting of the medical board was convened on December 27. There was nothing new in the report and only old things had been narrated which we already knew,” she said.
Meanwhile, Dr Adnan tweeted that the recent medical reports have been sent to the government.
