LAHORE: Nawaz Sharif’s cardiologists have been trying to get access to him all day but permission is not being granted, said his daughter Maryam Nawaz, on Friday.
Maryam urged authorities to grant permission to the former prime minister to be checked by cardiologists who were familiar with his complicated medical history. She said this in a tweet.
MNS’s cardiologists have been trying to get access to him all day but permission not granted. He has pain in the arm which is most likely to be angina. He needs to be examined by the doctors who are privy to his complicated medical history.
