Bal Thackeray is bored.
The Shiv Sena chief is being treated for weakness and fever at Lilavati Hospital in Bandra. In an edit in party mouthpiece Saamna, Thackeray equated the ICU to Anda Cell (solitary confinement).
Sources said Thackeray is doing fine but will have to rest in hospital for a day or two more, depending on what the doctors advise. Thackeray met party leaders, including son Uddhav Thackeray and discussed the forthcoming elections. NCP leader Sharad Pawar also visited him on Monday.
Meanwhile, in Saamna, Thackeray said he was feeling like been detained in the prison of love and lashed out at television channels and their crew over the way in which they were monitoring his health and reporting on it.
He said he felt like a prisoner in anda cell and asked doctors to discharge him if their experiments with his health were over.
Thackeray said TV channels were engaged in stiff competition over reporting the minutest details of his health.
The 82-year-old was admitted to the hospital on Thursday.
