Former PM Nawaz Sharif set to leave for London

LAHORE: Former premier and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif is likely to depart London on Tuesday (tomorrow) to receive medical treatment.

According to local news channel reports, an air ambulance will arrive in Lahore from Qatar on November 19. Nawaz Sharif’s medication has been changed to enable him to travel.

Nawaz Sharif will be shifted to the Harley Street Clinic in London immediately after landing.

With the flying fuel of 10 hours and two pilots, the air ambulance will be equipped with oxygen cylinders, ventilators, ICU and other medical facilities, while two doctors, including Sharif’s personal physician Dr Adnan, and paramedics will also assist the PML-N supremo during his travel.

PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said in her statement that Nawaz Sharif will depart abroad on Tuesday with prayers of 22 crore people.

“We shall warmly welcome Nawaz Sharif when he returns to Pakistan after recuperating. The government should turn its focus to serve people instead of getting jealous of Nawaz and Shehbaz Sharif.”
