LAHORE: After rejecting two rooms over lack of facilities in Lahore’s Jinnah hospital, erstwhile prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday finally liked a room and demanded to place a TV in it.
Sharif was moved to Jinnah Hospital from Kot Lakhpat jail owing to his illness, earlier in the day.
Following Nawaz’s wish of providing a TV in his room, the hospital administration removed a 32 inch LED installed in the room of medical superintendent (MS) to fix it in the PML-leader’s room.
Earlier, Sharif had expressed discomfort over facilities being provided in the VVIP block of the hospital.
Foolproof security measures were taken to ensure Nawaz’s safe stay in the hospital, beside the setup of a private room.
It is pertinent to mention here that, the former prime minister had also complained about lack of services at the Services hospital.
Later, the Punjab government had decided to shift him to the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC), but the PML-N leader had refused to be shifted over them and insisted to be taken back to jail.
The former premier was shifted to Services Hospital on February 3 and underwent medical tests to ascertain his health condition. The official said the tests had detected a stone in Sharif’s left kidney.
Sharif’s personal physician Dr Adnan Khan had also demanded the treatment of his patient as per the recommendations of the medical board report.
