New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday visited President Pranab Mukherjee, who underwent coronary angioplasty at Army's Research and Referral hospital in Delhi on last Saturday.

On meeting Mukherjee, PM Modi enquired about his health and wished him speedy recovery.

 

While Mukherjee is showing improvement, doctors at Army’s Research and Referral hospital here, who installed a coronary stent in his artery yesterday to remove a blockage in his heart, recommended that Mukherjee should remain hospitalised for sometime, the sources said.

The coronary angioplasty was necessitated as doctors detected a blockage in Mukherjee’s heart yesterday after he was admitted there with stomach problems and related ailments.

Earlier in the day, the President thanked people for their wishes on his official twitter account.

“Grateful for all the thoughts, wishes and prayers for my good health; I have recovered and am hoping to return to work soon,” the President tweeted.
