Lahore: Pakistan’s deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz said that she will not leave the country to join her father in London for her treatment despite the Imran Khan government’s apparent offer to go abroad.
“Even if someone (from the government) comes to my home and offers me to go abroad, I will decline it straightaway,” she said while talking to reporters at her Jati Umra Raiwind residence here.
“I know some ministers are saying that if Maryam is allowed to go abroad the opposition’s movement (against the government) will fizzle out. But let me make it clear that I will not leave my country come what may, and will not seek removal of my name from the no-fly list,” she said.
The PML-N vice president further said that she had to undergo a ‘little surgery’ which is not possible in Pakistan. “But despite this I will not leave Pakistan. I will live and die in my country,” she asserted.
Sharif has been living in London since November, 2019 after he was allowed to leave the country for medical treatment.
