Former Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif is expected to fly to London to meet his wife Begum Kulsoom Nawaz. According to a private news channel, the former PM is expected to celebrate Eidul Azha with his ailing wife who is undergoing a cancer treatment in London.
On August 22, doctors had diagnosed Kulsoom with lymphoma due to which she is undergoing treatment in London. Doctors have termed her disease ‘curable’ and said that the treatment shouldn’t be too complicated.
