LAHORE: Personal physician of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Dr Adnan on Friday said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo has never refused to undergo angiography.
Holding the government responsible for the delay in angiography of the deposed prime minister, Dr Adnan said that “the government will be responsible if anything happens to Sharif”, and added that he is ready to undergo angiography.
He said that until now the government has not asked for angiography of Nawaz Sharif.
Earlier, Dr Adnan had said that the government had to decide about whether Nawaz Sharif should be treated in Pakistan or abroad. He said that there is a need for intensive-care treatment of Nawaz as the condition of blood supply to one part of the patient’s heart was not good.
The doctor said that the medical board will decide about shifting the PML-N supremo to another place. He said that the medical board’s job was to diagnose the disease, while the government had to decide about the treatment.
The erstwhile prime minister was shifted to Jinnah Hospital from the Kot Lakhpat Jail in the light of medical board’s report.
On February 19, Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif had voiced concern over medical facilities being provided to his elder brother Nawaz Sharif.
