Shell shocked by Rahul's critical condition, Gopinath Munde has said it was still too early to link the incident with the killing of his brother-in-law Pramod Mahajan.
Munde, who arrived from Nagpur, said that all the family members, including Rahul's sister Poonam, had been informed of Rahul's condition, which he claimed was improving.
"It is not proper to pinpoint the reason behind this. Now that Vivek Maitra is no more, only Rahul would be able to say what happened after regaining consciousness," Munde said when asked whether there is any link between the two incidents.
Munde said he was told that both Rahul and Vivek developed problems after dinner around 02:30 in the morning. While Maitra, who was suffering from high blood pressure and diabetes, died of heart attack around 5 am, Rahul's condition was improving.
Asked whether Rahul's mother Rekha has been informed of the development, he said, "we have told her that it is a case of food poisoning and all family members were aware of it. A decision on whether other members should come to Delhi would be taken after I personally see the situation."
