Sharif’s recovery ‘on course’, says daughter

Islamabad, June 6 (IANS) Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s recovery is on track, his daughter Maryam Nawaz has said, nearly a week after he underwent surgery.

Since Sharif was hospitalised, Maryam has taken charge of the media management in the Sharif camp, feeding the press updates on her father’s medical condition, Dawn online reported.

From announcing Sharif’s decision to undergo the surgery, to tweeting his first picture after the procedure, Maryam’s Twitter feed has provided minute details about how much time the premier would spend inside the intensive care unit (ICU).

Maryam also update the media about Sharif’s plans to come back home.

Sharif underwent open-heart surgery at a London hospital and was moved to an intensive care unit in a stable condition last week.
