LAHORE: Maryam Nawaz after meeting her incarcerated father at the Kot Lakhpat jail on Thursday said he remains unwell with continuous angina.
"Today again during the meeting he had to use sublingual spray for the pain and breathlessness. Please remember him in your daily prayers. Thank you all," Maryam tweeted after meeting the former premier.
A day earlier, the former premier's daughter had said that he would not be able to receive any visitors owing to his ill condition. "May Allah SWT bless him with long life and good health. Ameen. We all need him. Pakistan needs him. Thank you everyone for your kind & continuous support. Means a lot to me," she had said.
Earlier on Monday, Maryam had tweeted that she was still waiting for permission to meet her father. "He is unwell and its been five days that I have no access to him. Not even his personal physician has been allowed to see him. A humble reminder: Force of retribution never sleeps."
Nawaz has been in jail since December 2018 following his conviction in a corruption reference in line with the Supreme Court’s July 2017 verdict.
