NAWAZ SHARIF DISCHARGED FROM HOSPITAL
The News, Islamabad

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan yesterday directed  the authorities to visit the venue of  Azadi March to   assess what relief could be provided to the protesters  as  temperatures dropped after Tuesday's rain in the federal capital.

The orders came   after pictures of  Azadi Marchers preparing to go to sleep in the biting cold and rain emerged on social media.

The prime minister said on Twitter that he has asked  the Capital Development Authority (CDA) chairman to visit the Azadi March sit-in site and determine what relief can be provided to the protesters.

“I have directed the CDA Chairman to immediately visit the dharna site to assess what relief and assistance can be provided to the dharna participants.”

The prime minister stated that the relief would be provided in view of the onset of rain and changing weather conditions.

Senator Faisal Javed Khan, a close aide to PM Imran, said that the dharna participants are respectable for us and the premier has issued directives for their relief.

In the pictures that surfaced online, protesters can be seen sleeping on mattresses laid on the ground, with blankets and plastic coverings draped over them to keep away the cold.

Thousands of protesters have converged on the federal capital under the banner of the Azadi March, demanding prime minister's resignation.

Another report from Lahore adds:  Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was discharged from the Services Hospital and taken to his residence Jati Umra on Wednesday,  16 days after he was hospitalized in critical condition.  He was accompanied by daughter Maryam Nawaz , his mother and other family members.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said in a statement that an Intensive Care Unit has been set up at the former premier’s residence and the doctors have put a ban on people from visiting him.

The spokesperson also said that due to low platelet counts there were chances that an infection might develop, and the doctors suggested the setting up of a special medical unit in Jati Umra.

Aurangzeb said that the unit was set up under the supervision of Sharif’s personal physician Dr Adnan Khan. She added that the doctors will be present in the ICU round the clock.

On Tuesday, Nurses and doctors from the Sharif Medical City arrived at the Services hospital, where head of the medical board Professor Dr Mehmood Ayaz gave the medical file and reports of the former premier to the doctors of the Sharif Medical City.
