LAHORE: Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif left for London on Wednesday morning to meet his ailing wife.
Nawaz will reach London via flight EK-625 of a private airline, and is expected to stay there for ten days. Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) will also conduct a rally in west London during his visit.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader will be abroad with his wife, sons and grandsons during Eid. Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, the wife of PML-N leader, is reportedly under treatment for throat cancer.
