A day after the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Lalu Prasad Yadav was admitted in Mumbai’s Asian Heart Institute for a ‘detailed health evaluation’, the hospital’s medical director confirmed that the politician will require a cardiac surgery in the near future, though details of the operation were not disclosed.

According to the hospital sources, his condition is stable and the health check-up was scheduled well in advance. Yadav was admitted under the care of hospital’s director Dr Ramakant Panda on late Sunday night.

His wife Rabri Devi, son-in-law and few other relatives have also come to Mumbai with him.

The 66-year-old politician was kept under observation for 24 hours to monitor his health. The hospital is awaiting few more medical reports after which a further call will be taken.

Yadav has held the union railway ministry portfolio from 2004 to 2009 under the UPA government. Recently, his party RJD formed an alliance with Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal to contest for the upcoming state elections.​

    Too much tension it seems for being out of power for such a long time.Now that Nitish has given way for Lalu he will bounce back once again to take his state to the Stone Age days.

          The main man of the Fodder Scam. And the government will be paying for his treatment. He's been in jail, not as a freedom fighter, mind you. This is our India now. Public money goes for these expenses.
