Former Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao hospitalised after fall
KT Rama Rao said KCR suffered a fracture and needs to undergo a hip replacement surgery.
Former Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao or KCR was rushed to a hospital after falling in his farmhouse in Erravalli on Thursday night. The Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) chief has been admitted to the Yashoda Hospital in Hyderabad, according to ANI.
Rao's son and Bharat Rashtra Samithi leader KT Rama Rao said KCR suffered a fracture and needs to undergo hip replacement surgery on Friday.
“Sri KCR Garu needs to undergo Hip Replacement Surgery today after he had a fall in his bathroom. Thanks to all those who have been sending messages for his speedy recovery,” KTR wrote on X.
Rao's daughter and BRS MLC K Kavitha earlier said he had suffered a "minor injury" and that he would be fine soon.
"BRS supremo KCR Garu sustained a minor injury and is currently under expert care in the hospital. With the support and well wishes pouring in, Dad will be absolutely fine soon. Grateful for all the love," Kavitha said on X.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he was distressed to know that KCR has suffered an injury.
“Distressed to know that former Telangana CM Shri KCR Garu has suffered an injury. I pray for his speedy recovery and good health,” the prime minister wrote on X.
KCR stepped down as chief minister of Telangana recently after the BRS was voted out of power in the state assembly. Revanth Reddy of the Congress took oath as the new chief minister of Telangana on Thursday.
Top Congress leaders including Mallikarjun Kharge, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, and others were present at the event, which was thronged by thousands of party workers and ordinary people.
