The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on Monday discharged Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) supremo Lalu Prasad against his will, hours after meeting Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
While the hospital claimed that the condition of the RJD supremo improved significantly, the former Bihar chief minister alleged a “political conspiracy” behind his discharge.
Earlier in the day, the RJD chief also wrote a letter to the institute’s director, asking not to discharge him until he recovers completely.
However, the hospital said, “Lalu Prasad has improved significantly and as per advice of the medical board constituted for his treatment, he is being referred back to Ranchi Medical College for management of his chronic issues. He is currently stable and is fit to travel.”
The discharge of Lalu came hours after Congress president Rahul Gandhi met him at the hospital and enquired about his health.
Following the discharge orders, supporters of Lalu created ruckus in the hospital premises protesting the decision.
They were alleging that there was a conspiracy to “murder” their leader by “forcing him out” of the premier hospital even though he continues to suffer from various ailments.
The RJD chief, who has been serving a jail term in connection with the fodder scam, was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Dlehi on March 29 for specialised treatment.
