Lahore (Web Desk): Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif has suspended all political activities for two weeks as he has been advised "complete rest" by doctors after he slipped on a staircase.
In a tweet on Thursday, PML-N information secretary Marriyum Aurangzeb confirmed that Shehbaz was leaving for a press conference on Wednesday when he slipped on a staircase and fell on his back. But "with the grace of Allah, he remained safe from a major injury," she added.
She said that the PML-N president had been advised physiotherapy with complete rest.
صدر پاکستان مسلم لیگ ن محمد شہباز شریف گزشتہ روز پریس کانفرنس پہ جاتے ہوئے پاﺅں پھسلنے سے سیڑھیوں پر کمر کے بل گر پڑے تھے اللہ تعالی کا شکر ہے کہ بڑی چوٹ سے محفوظ رہے.طبی معالج نے معائنہ کیا ، مکمل آرام اور فزیوتھراپی کا کہا ہے شہباز شریف صاحب نے تمام سیاسی سرگرمیاں معطل کردیں— Marriyum Aurangzeb (@Marriyum_A) September 30, 2021
It is pertinent to mention that Shehbaz Sharif had complained about severe back pain in 2019 due to which his Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) was conducted.
The MRI report had later shown complications in his spinal disks, prompting doctors to advise him to undergo surgery.
