Ahead of Bihar Assembly Elections, Ram Vilas Paswan undergoes heart surgery in Delhi Hospital

New Delhi: Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief Chirag Paswan on Sunday Sunday said that Union Minister, his father Ram Vilas Paswan had undergone a heart surgery in a Delhi hospital.

He also said that Ram Vilas Paswan might have to undergo another surgery in the coming weeks if the need arises.

Through his official Twitter handle, Chirag said, “For the last many days dad is getting treated in a hospital. Due to some sudden developments yesterday evening, an operation of his heart had to be conducted in the late night. If the need arises, then possibly after a few weeks another operation might be conducted. Thanks to all for standing by me and my family in this hour of struggle,” Chirag’s tweet read.

On Saturday, the LJP meeting that was scheduled to decide on whether to accept the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance’s (NDA) offer of seats in the upcoming Bihar Assembly elections, was postponed owing to the ill health of the Union Minister.

Earlier in September, Chirag had informed that his visit to Bihar for the final discussions over seat-sharing and other formalities ahead of the upcoming Bihar Assembly elections might be delayed as his father was unwell.
