On Sunday, two days after undergoing an angioplasty, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot was discharged from Sawai Man Singh (SMS) hospital. On Friday, Gehlot had angioplasty at a local hospital. One of his coronary arteries was 90% blocked, and a stent was successfully implanted.
The Congress leader, who is 70 years old, has been told to rest for the next several days and will be monitored by physicians at his home. While at the hospital, the chief minister met some patients to know about their health and after being discharged, thanked his staff, doctors, and others.
"I have reached my official residence safely. I would like to thank all the staff including all the doctors, nursing staff, ward boys, sweepers of SMS Hospital who took good care of me," Gehlot tweeted. He further said, "I have seen that the hospital staff deserves praise for the effort made in SMS to serve all the patients well."
