PML-N leader and former state minister for finance Rana Afzal Khan passed away on Friday after suffering from a heart ailment. He was 70.
Khan was under treatment at the Faisalabad Institute of Cardiology, where he was admitted after he complained of chest pains a few days ago.
PML-N President and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif expressed his grief on the politician’s demise.
He was quoted as saying that Khan was a “valuable asset” of the party and a close partner of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
“He spent his life struggling for the cause of democracy, Constitution, human rights and public service,” Shahbaz said.
