Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, the Prime Min­is­ter also hugged his brother and Pun­jab Chief Min­is­ter She­hbaz Sharif.

Later She­hbaz Sharif said that the Prime Min­is­ter was quite sat­is­fied and in high spirit. He said the PM ad­vised him not to be worked and that the prayers of the na­tion were with him.
