Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today wished Anna Hazare a speedy recovery after the social activist was hospitalised with a chest infection.
“Praying for the good health of Anna Hazareji. Hope he gets well soon…,” Modi said on social networking site Twitter.
74-year-old Hazare was shifted from Ralegan Siddhi to a Pune hospital last night after a medical examination found him suffering from chest infection.
Hazare,who led the movement on Lokpal Bill against the Union government had stirred a controversy in April last year by praising Modi for his work in Gujarat and suggesting that other chief ministers should emulate him.
However,Hazare did a U-turn on his visit to Gujarat on May 26 last year and criticised the state government over allegations of scams.
On his Twitter account today,Modi also expressed solidarity with the people affected due to cyclone Thane.
“People of Gujarat stand by those affected by Cyclone Thane in their hour of grief. Praying for normalcy to be restored soon,” he said.
