LAHORE: Maryam Nawaz, daughter of incarcerated former premier Nawaz Sharif, on Tuesday took to Twitter and said no treatment is offered to her father despite being taken and kept in the hospital for days.
Maryam Nawaz wrote, “MNS’s doctor & I met him at Kotlakhpat jail today. During the meeting he had an episode of angina & asked for his nitrate spray. It was then that he divulged that he has had similar attacks 4 times in last week. He reiterated that he will neither report nor complain.”
“There is no treatment offered to him even when he is taken to & kept in the hospital for days. He says he doesn’t want to be in the hospital as an excuse or escape or just for the sake of it.”
“MNS has been a 3 times Prime Minister & the insensitivity & callousness regarding his health on part of the govt is shocking to say the least. My family & I are extremely concerned given the grave risk to his health. His condition is in every way life-threatening.”
“It’s a medical fact that every episode of angina worsens the heart disease further & can irreversibly damage the heart. Who will I blame or who will be responsible if anything happens to him God forbid? The callousness, I repeat, is shocking.”
“Imagine the extent of the heartlessness, hostility & political victimisation meted out to MNS by the govt that he is risking his health & life.”
