PM sends ‘get well soon’ card, flowers to Anna
Gandhian Anna Hazare’s health condition improved further on Tuesday, but he won’t be discharged from the hospital just yet.
New Delhi: In a warm gesture, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh sent a ‘get well soon’ card and flowers to Gandhian Anna Hazare, who is recuperating at a Gurgaon hospital after fasting for 12 days to press for a strong a Lokpal.
Anna’s health condition has shown consistent improvement ever since he was admitted to the hospital on August 28, after he broke his fast with honey and coconut water. A day earlier, the Parliament had unanimously issued the Sense of the House agreeing to incorporate, in principle, to the demands being made by him.
Anna is admitted to the Medanta Medicity Hospital in nearby Guragon, where a team of doctors is keeping a close watch on his health condition.
As per the latest medical bulletin issued today, Anna’s blood pressure is 124/84; the pulse rate has also stabilised and is currently 78/minute. He has also gained weight – 66.6 kg.
However, the 74-year-old man, who got tremendous support for his anti-corruption movement, won’t be discharged from the hospital soon as the doctors attending to him deferred taking a decision on the matter.
