Imran Khan takes a dig at Nawaz Sharif

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday took a sly dig at Nawaz Sharif, saying the ailing former premier, who doctors said could die at any minute if he did not go abroad for treatment, suddenly recovered and looked perfectly fine as he got a glimpse of the London-bound air ambulance.

Sharif on Tuesday left for London in the air ambulance for medical treatment for multiple diseases after the Lahore High Court allowed him to travel abroad for four weeks.

Addressing a gathering in Mianwali district in Punjab, prime minister Khan said when he saw Sharif boarding the air ambulance he looked at his the medical report which stated the Pakistan

Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo was suffering 15 different diseases like heart and kidney problems, high diabetes and low platelet count.

"I was stunned when I saw him boarding the air ambulance. The medical report said he could die any moment and had to be taken abroad for treatment. It said he cannot be cured in Pakistan. But i wonder whether it was by looking at the plane that his health suddenly improved," Khan said.
