Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, who is on a six-week furlough from the Ranchi prison on health ground, left Patna for Mumbai on Tuesday to seek better medical attention for his deteriorating health caused by kidney, heart, and a host of other problems.
Yadav left for Mumbai on Tuesday evening with his elder son Tej Pratap Yadav and his wife Aishwarya Rai, eldest child and MP Misa Bharti, and his most-trusted assistance and party legislator Bhola Yadav.
The former Chief Minister of Bihar who was convicted in multiple criminal cases related to the fodder scam in Bihar that took place during his administration in the '90s, is expected to be admitted in the noted Asian Heart Institute, sources said.
As reported, the RJD chief spent over a month in Delhi's prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) seeking treatment for various ailments. He, however, was discharged from there after doctors deemed him fit enough to go back to the Ranchi jail.
He also managed to seek a temporary 3-day bail to attend his first son and former Bihar Health Minister Tej Pratap Yadav's wedding. Once back in Ranchi after three days, Yadav's lawyers appealed for a longer bail period to seek medical assistance in Mumbai, Delhi, and Bangalore.
The Ranchi Court then granted him a conditional six-week parole after which he was brought back to Patna on May 16. On 19th, he complained of chest pain and uneasiness that prompted his admission in the Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (IGIMS), Patna, only to be released after a couple of hours.
"Mr. Yadav is suffering from heart and kidney conditions along with hypertension and sugar problems. He will be treated in a Mumbai hospital and if required, he will be taken to other hospitals in the country," party leaders said in Patna on Tuesday.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
