LAHORE - Maryam Nawaz advocated the release of the former prime minister Nawaz Sharif from jail in point-blank remarks on Tuesday, revealing that the politician was not in good health.

In a series of tweets, Maryam explained the medical condition of the former premier describing it as 'life-threatening' while complaining that the government was not paying heed to the situation.

"MNS’s doctor & I met him at Kotlakhpat jail today. During the meeting he had an episode of angina & asked for his nitrate spray. It was then that he divulged that he has had similar attacks 4 times in last week. He reiterated that he will neither report nor complain," Maryam Tweeted.

In another tweet, Maryam claimed that the government had not offered any treatment to the supreme leader of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz even during his stay at the hospital a few days ago.

The visibly concerned Maryam continued, 'My family & I are extremely concerned given the grave risk to his health. His condition is in every way life-threatening.

The daughter of the former lawmaker explained that every episode of angina worsens the heart disease and can irreversibly damage the heart as well.

Hours after elaborating the medical condition of the politician, Maryam changed her profile picture on the social media network with 'Free Nawaz Sharif' pasted on a picture of the former prime minister.

One of the social media users also requested Maryam to persuade Nawaz Sharif, visit the hospital, however, she replied that the former premier did not budge despite repeated attempts.

The elder Sharif was sent to seven years behind bars in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills reference by the accountability court in Islamabad in December last year.

Nawaz Sharif was also convicted in the Avenfiled reference by the accountability court judge Muhammad Bashir, however, he was granted bail by the Islamabad High Court.

Sharif's plea for bail on medical grounds in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills reference conviction was turned down by the Islamabad High Court last month following which he has moved the supreme court.
