Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray, who underwent an angioplasty on Tuesday at a suburban hospital in Mumbai, is in ICU but his condition is stable, sources said on Thursday.
He is doing fine and supposed to have been shifted to a special room from ICU on Thursday, however, he is still under observation in ICU, they said.
The 83-year-old leader is expected to be discharged in two or three days, they said. Thackeray was admitted to the private hospital on Monday and underwent angioplasty, a technique of mechanically widening a narrowed or obstructed blood vessel, on July 8.
The Sena patriarch is ailing for the last few years, leaving day-to-day functioning of the over four decades old party to son Uddhav. Thackeray spent around a week in the hospital last month after complaining of breathlessness.
