“The real state of health of Nawaz is important because of the complex and deadly diseases he faces,” he added. “Nawaz has already undergone open-heart surgery twice, and he was diagnosed with severe cramps in his veins leading to the heart during ongoing treatment at the Royal Brompton Hospital,” he said adding a large portion of his heart remains affected.
Shehbaz Sharif said Nawaz was in prison when Kulsoom Nawaz died fighting cancer that had a negative impact on his health, “It was Maryam Nawaz who stayed a source of bravery for the leader of the PML-N at the time, but it is regrettable that she was not allowed to visit her ailing father at this crucial time,” he said.
