Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif was shifted to hospital on Wednesday when he fell ill. The check-up of the chief minister was conducted at Ittefaq Hospital after which he was discharged.

Punjab government spokesman said that Shehbaz Sharif was in good health and his medical tests are normal. After being discharged from the hospital, Shehbaz Sharif issued a statement saying he was in good health by grace of Allah and prayers of the nation. He also expressed gratitude to the people for praying for his health.

Sources privy to the matter informed that the chief minister’s health suffered due to exertion.

A day ago, Shehbaz Sharif paid a visit to Jamiat Ulema Islam-F (JUI-F) leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman, who is also hospitalised these days.

According to sources, his blood sugar level had increased and caused health complications. Fazlur Rehman also went through different tests and is currently under treatment in a hospital in Lahore.
