On 28 May, Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended wishes to his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif, who is in London for a medical check-up and will undergo an open-heart surgery on Tuesday.

"My best wishes to PM Nawaz Sharif Sahab for his open heart surgery on Tuesday. And for his speedy recovery & good health," Prime Minister Modi said on Twitter.

Prime Minister Sharif left for London on 22 May and was scheduled to return by Friday. However, he postponed his return following medical reports suggesting the procedure, The Express Tribune reported.


Sharif will undergo an open-heart surgery in London on Tuesday and stay there for a week to recover fully, the report quoted Pakistan Muslim League (N) leader Khawaja Asif.


The Prime Minister's daughter, Maryam Nawaz, confirmed the development, saying doctors recommended the surgery after "thorough scans and tests".


"The recovery period and hospital stay will be one week," she tweeted.


Meanwhile, the PPP chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari appealed to his countrymen to pray for the prime minister's speedy recovery.


Finance Minister Senator Ishaq Dar will look after and manage Pakisan's political affairs in the absence of Prime Minister Nawaz, Express News reported.
