Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief and prime minister-in-waiting, Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday evening met his political foe at the hospital to soften up pre-election bitterness.

Sharif presented a flower bouquet to Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital in Lahore.

The cricket legend-turned politician had sustained injuries on his head and back when he fell off the lifter during a public rally in Lahore last week.

Speaking to media representatives after the meeting, Nawaz Sharif said the meeting took place in “good environment.”

There goes the corrupt party PML-N again trying hard to corrupt PTI so PML-N can break record of corruption. If this is the change, then why bothered with the election?

I like the way "presenting bouquet to Imran Khan" adopted by Mian Nawaz Sharif. Although I love a lot MQM but this is very good approach by upcoming prime minister. I well come, and hope business will progress around the country including Karachi, KPK, Lahore, Islamabad and etc..

Pakistan to Nawaz: It's time to ask: What you can to for your country, not what your country can do for you.

I think its a good gesture from nawaz at a time when pakistan and its poor people need peace and harmony - pakistan's interest should come first leaving all our differences, then only will our country progress and we will be proud to call ourself pakistanis

At least he came up with a friendly gesture, despite the fact that he doesn't need Imran Khan to form a government. This is what politicians need to learn. Have the capacity to disagree respectfully.

This time Nawaz sharif has very different personality as he appeared in past. At one moment I feel he want to deliever this time. He came to I K showed the hidden story. We should think positive and for Pakistan. This time I can see the compitition for development between KPK and Punjab this is very good sign for Pakistan Nation.
