London (June 24, 2018): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif remarked on Sunday that he won’t be able to participate in the electoral campaign for the upcoming general election due to the health of his wife Kulsoom Nawaz.
While speaking to journalists in London, he shared that his wife is suffering from an infection, adding that she also has fever due to the infection. “Kulsoom Nawaz is my wife. I have certain responsibilities towards her.”On Saturday, Nawaz Sharif said that he would return to Pakistan after the improvement in the condition of his wife Kulsoom Nawaz, who has been under treatment in London for past few months.
Speaking to newsmen outside the Harley Street Clinic, the former premier said that his wife was struggling for her life.“Can I think of going back to Pakistan under such circumstances when Kulsoom is on ventilator? Do you think I should return to Pakistan leaving behind my wife in such a condition?” he asked reporters.
“[We] will decide about going back to Pakistan once Kulsoom’s health improves in next few days.”Begum Kulsoom was admitted to hospital in London in August last year after doctors discovered she was suffering from throat cancer. She has been undergoing treatment since.
On June 14, Begum Kulsoom was shifted to the hospital’s ICU after she suffered a cardiac arrest and has been on life support since.
