Patna: Union Minister and Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) president Ramvilas Paswan, who was admitted to the ICU of a hospital in Patna on Thursday evening after he complained of breathlessness, has recovered and is expected to be discharged Saturday, doctors said on Friday.

"Paswan who was brought to the hospital late last evening has recovered and is totally healthy today," said a press bulletin quoting Dr Talat Halim, Director of Medical Services of Paras HMRI, where the minister is admitted.

 

"Today Paswan ate food also. He is expected to be discharged from the hospital tomorrow," Dr Halim said, adding he is being treated by Dr Pramod Kumar and Dr Ajay Sinha of the cardiology unit of the hospital.

Earlier in the day Kumar, head of the cardiology unit of Paras HMRI Hospital said that Paswan's health condition is now stable.

Dr Sanjeev Kumar of AIIMS Patna, another member of the team of doctors treating the Union Minister for Food and Consumer Affairs, too said Paswan's health condition is stable.

Chirag Paswan, MP and the minister's son, told reporters outside the hospital that his father has recovered and the family will decide on taking him to Delhi on the advice of doctors attending him.

 

Paswan (70) was admitted to the ICU of the private hospital in Patna around 8:30 pm on Thursday after he complained of breathlessness.
