LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Wednesday met her ailing father, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, at Services Hospital in Lahore.
The meeting between Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz lasted an hour.
The Punjab home department granted her permission to visit Nawaz on the directives of Prime Minister Imran Khan — a few hours after she told the media that an accountability court had turned down her request.
“I wanted to see for myself how Mian Sahib [Nawaz Sharif] was doing,” she told reporters. “But the judge did not grant me permission to meet my father for an hour.” The video of Maryam informing the media about the judge’s decision went viral on social media.
Later, Maryam Nawaz has also been admitted in the same hospital after a sudden health issue with her that forced the doctors to admit her immediately.
