Modi wishes speedy recovery for Hazare

india Updated: Jan 01, 2012 18:25 IST

Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi wished social activist Anna Hazare a speedy recovery after the veteran was hospitalised last night with chest infection.

"Praying for the good health of Anna Hazareji. Hope he gets well soon...," Modi said on the social networking site Twitter in Ahmedabad on Sunday.

74-year-old Hazare was shifted from Ralegan Siddhi to the hospital after medical examination which showed that he was suffering from a chest infection.

Hazare, who led the movement on Lokpal Bill against the Union government had stirred controversy in April last year when he praised Modi for the work done in Gujarat and suggested that other chief ministers should emulate him.

However, Hazare did a u-turn on his visit to Gujarat on May 26 last year and criticised the state government over allegations of scams.

On his Twitter account today, Modi also expressed solidarity with the people affected due to Cyclone Thane.

"People of Gujarat stand by those affected by Cyclone Thane in their hour of grief. Praying for normalcy to be restored soon," he said.
