Former Bihar chief minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Yadav may be shifted to the All India Institutes of Medical Sciences in Delhi for treatment, a doctor said on Monday.
Dr RK Srivastava of the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences said that although Lalu Yadav did not have any more surgical problems, the treatment for his earlier health issues is still underway.
"Lalu Yadav's health is getting better. He does not have any surgical problems now. The treatment for his earlier health problems is still underway. We are thinking of shifting him to AIIMS," Dr Srivastava told news agency ANI.
