Hyderabad: Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu, undergoing treatment for jaundice at a private hospital here, is recovering.
Chandrababu, who undertook an indefinite hunger-strike for six days in New Delhi last week demanding justice be done to all regions of Andhra Pradesh in the event of the state bifurcation, was admitted to a private hospital upon his return to Hyderabad on Sunday night and was diagnosed with jaundice.
Doctors at the Asian Institute of Gastroenterology here conducted tests on Chandrababu`s liver on Tuesday.
Senior TDP leader Garikapati Mohan Rao said a decision on when Chandrababu should be discharged from hospital would be taken based on the doctors` report.
The ailing leader`s condition is, however, stable, party leaders said.
"Thanks for all the wishes and blessings. I am recovering to fight for my people again," Chandrababu said in a tweet this evening.
Senior leaders of the party, including Rajya Sabha member T Devender Goud, called on the TDP chief in the hospital today while an all-religious prayer was held for his speedy recovery.
