Lalu Yadav to be shifted to Delhi AIIMS for better treatment

All preparations have been made to shift Lalu Yadav, President of Rashtriya Janata Dal and the former Chief Minister of Bihar, from RIMS, Ranchi to Delhi AIIMS for better treatment, in view of his declining health. At five o’clock in the evening, he was scheduled to be taken to Delhi by air ambulance. After the decision of RIMS Medical Board, all preparations were made to take Lalu to Delhi in a hurry.

Dr. Kameshwar Prasad, director of Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), said, “Lalu Yadav was suffering from breathing issues for the last two days after which he was examined on Friday and confirmed pneumonia. Considering his age, we have decided to transfer him to Delhi AIIMS for better treatment and today he is likely to be sent to AIIMS. We have had talks with experts at AIIMS to discuss his medical history”.

Dr. Prasad said, ‘the administration and family of Lalu Yadav have been busy arranging for an air ambulance to take him to AIIMS and Lalu Prasad Yadav will be sent to AIIMS as soon as it is arranged”. Meanwhile, on the advice of the jail administration, RIMS has set up a medical board of eight different specialist doctors who will be examining Lalu’s health. On the report of this board, he is being sent to AIIMS. RIMS informed the Ranchi Jail Administration about taking Lalu Yadav to Delhi AIIMS. Jail Superintendent Hameed confirmed this. On the other hand, Lalu Yadav’s family, who arrived in Ranchi yesterday, talked to doctors on all aspects of his treatment from this morning. Yesterday, the family met Lalu Yadav for six hours. Today once again the family reached the hospital. Lalu Yadav’s wife and former Bihar Chief Minister Rabri Devi, Leader of Opposition Tejashwi Yadav, Tej Pratap Yadav, and Misa Bharti were there. Earlier, Rabri Devi and Tejashwi Yadav also met Hemant Soren, the CM of Jharkhand.
