LAHORE: Dr Shahbaz Gill, the spokesperson for the Punjab chief minister, on Friday refuted Maryam Nawaz s claims that Nawaz Sharif was being denied a meeting with his personal physician, saying Maryam s allegations were “completely false”.
Contradicting Maryam s tweet, he claimed that Nawaz personal physician, Dr Adnan, had contacted the jail administration to request a meeting with Sharif at 5:38 in the evening. Dr Adnan was therefore asked to visit the jail on Saturday (today) to meet Sharif and he acknowledged the same, the spokesperson added.
However, Gill stated, a jail doctor had already conducted Sharif s medical check-up earlier in the day; the doctor found the PML-N chief to be healthy and his blood pressure, sugar level and ECG to be normal.
Earlier, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz on Friday asserted that the cardiologists of her father are not being granted permission to meet him in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat jail.
In a tweet, Maryam maintained that her father is suffering from a pain in his arm, “which is most likely to be angina”. “He needs to be examined by the doctors who are privy to his complicated medical history,” she stressed.
