New Delhi [India], July 9 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday spoke to former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Kalyan Singh's grandson and enquired about his health.
In a tweet on Friday, the Prime Minister said people across India are praying for the speedy recovery of Singh.
"Countless people across India are praying for the speedy recovery of Kalyan Singh Ji. Yesterday @JPNadda Ji, CM @myogiadityanath Ji and others went to the hospital to meet him. I just spoke to his grandson and enquired about his health," Prime Minister Modi tweeted.
Taking about Nadda's visit to Singh, the Prime Minister said: "I was deeply touched to know that during his conversation with @JPNadda Ji, Kalyan Singh Ji remembered me. I also have many memories of my interactions with Kalyan Singh Ji. Several of those memories came back to life. Talking to him has always been a learning experience."
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president JP Nadda on Thursday paid a surprise visit to Lucknow to see ailing former Uttar Pradesh chief minister.
The BJP chief went straight to the Sanjay Gandhi PGI to see the veteran leader who was hospitalised last week following a heart attack and kidney-related problems.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi was worried about him (former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Kalyan Singh). I came here to see him along with CM Yogi Adityanath and other leaders. We pray for his speedy recovery. He is responding to medicines," Nadda said.
Earlier, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh also visited Kalyan Singh at the hospital.
Singh was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGI) in Lucknow on Sunday evening, according to an official statement.
According to the hospital, the health condition of the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister is better and he is hemodynamically stable.
Prime Minister Modi had called the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister last week to ensure that the best possible medical care is made available to Singh. (ANI)
