No receptions for him, Pakistan PM tells party leaders

Islamabad, June 30 (IANS) Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday barred party leadership from welcoming him on his return to the country after successful open-heart surgery and directed them to call off all reception ceremonies planned in his honour.

In a message to the people of Pakistan, Sharif said he did not know that a big welcome ceremony has been arranged on his return to Pakistan. He purely recognises peoples’ love and sincerity, “by the grace of God a sensitive and stage-wise operation, was completed successfully and safely”, a statement from the Prime Minister’s office said.

Sharif also said that as soon as doctors would allow him to travel, he will be back among his own people.
