Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif will depart for London tomorrow, sources informed on Monday.
Shahbaz will spend three days in London where he will inquire into the health of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s wife, and his sister-in-law, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz.
Kulsoom, who recently underwent a throat surgery and at present is residing at her son Hasan’s residence, is in London for treatment of lymphoma.
The Punjab chief minister will also meet the local leadership of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz in London.
In a statement released on Monday, Shahbaz lashed out at the country’s ‘enemies’, saying those leveling baseless allegations and spreading lies have failed at every step.
“The people see your hollow claims,” he said, adding that those spreading lies will continue to fail at every step.
“These elements are against timely completion of development projects,” he claimed further.
