LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz can be seen crying for her ailing father in a video that went viral on social media on Friday.
In the video, Maryam can be seen crying as her son, Junaid Safdar, holds her. The PML-N vice president was shedding tears for her father, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who fell ill on Monday night and was rushed to Services Hospital.
Nawaz’s platelet count fell drastically after which he was shifted to the hospital. He was given three mega units of platelets after which his condition improved. However, his platelet count level again dropped to a dangerous level.
Prime Minister Imran prayed for Nawaz’s swift recovery and tasked Punjab Government to provide the best medical care to the former prime minister.
According to Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar, the prime minister also directed Punjab Government to complete all legal requirements to ensure Maryam was shifted to the same hospital for medical treatment (she also fell ill) to be with her father.
Punjab Health Minister Dr Yasmin Rashid had said that any doctor from overseas could be brought in to treat the former prime minister, if the Sharif family went for that option.
