RJD president Lalu Yadav, who is recovering at a hospital in Singapore after undergoing a kidney transplant surgery, has a message for his well-wishers. In a video shared by his elder daughter Misa Bharti on Twitter, Yadav said, “You all prayed for me. I am feeling good.” Yadav was advised a kidney transplant earlier this year. Tejashwi Yadav and Misa Bharti have been staying with their ailing father in Singapore for the surgery.
Social media hails selfless act
On the other hand, Rohini got lots of praise on social media platforms. Scores of people tagged Rohini photograph with Lalu and wished for daughter like Rohini. In a post created moment before her surgery, Rohini shared a selfie and a photo with Lalu, claiming, “It’s time to rock and roll”.
While Lalu’s elder daughter Misa Bharti has been regularly sharing pictures, videos and updates on social media since the surgery, his son and deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav has also been posting updates about his father and sister’s health. Tejashwi is younger than both Rohini and Misa. The deputy CM was in Singapore but leaders and several ministers in Bihar performed puja for Lalu’s recovery.
The septuagenarian father and daughter were admitted to the hospital on Sunday for pre-surgery tests and the transplant took place on Monday. Rohini on Saturday had posted a picture with her father on social media and wrote “We have not seen God but as God I have seen my father.”
