PM Nawaz Sharif returns to Pakistan after 48 days

LAHORE, 09 JULY (DNA) – Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif returned to Pakistan on Saturday, over a month after undergoing open-heart surgery at a London hospital. Talking to reporters after his arrival, the premier said, “I have returned to Pakistan with a new spirit and am as much active as I used to be.”

Sharif said that sit-ins are not the solution to the issues faced by the country. A dedicated Pakistan International Airline (PIA) Boeing 777 aircraft brought the prime minister and his camp office back home from London.

The prime minister was convalescing after undergoing the heart surgery in London and left for the country on the advice of his doctors. The aircraft landed at the Lahore airport around 7:00PM on Saturday evening.

Security was beefed up in and around the airport for the prime minister’s arrival. According to sources, over 1,800 security personnel were deployed at the airport. Security was also beefed up at Jaati Umra for Sharif’s arrival, with a large contingent of police deployed around the PM House.

The prime minister had travelled to London for a routine medical check-up on May 22, where doctors had advised him to undergo open heart surgery. Sharif underwent successful surgery on May 31. He was released from the London clinic on June 6, while his doctors allowed him to travel back home via air two days ago. DNA
