Singapore: RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav undergoes kidney transplant surgery

Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav on Monday said Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav had gone through a successful kidney transplant surgery in Singapore.

At Mount Elizabeth Hospital, the surgery was performed in Singapore.

Taking to Twitter, Tejashwi Yadav tweeted, “After the successful operation of my father’s kidney transplant, he was shifted from the operation theatre to ICU. Donar elder sister Rohini Acharya and the party national president are both healthy. Thank you for your prayers and good wishes.”

Meanwhile, Lalu Prasad’s daughter gave her kidney to her father and, before the transplant, Acharya tweeted and said, “Ready to rock and roll. We wish me good luck.”

Moreover, Bihar Deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav said in November that Rohini’s kidney was found to be the best match for the RJD chief’s transplant.

Talking to the media, Deputy CM Yadav said, “The doctors wanted someone from the family to donate a kidney to my father. My sister Rohini’s kidney was the best match, so we went ahead with it.”

Earlier, doctors advised Lalu about a kidney transplant as he had been suffering from acute kidney complications for some time.

However, Rohini Acharya is the daughter of Lalu Prasad Yadan and Rabri Devi. Rohini is married to Rao Samresh Singh, who is an engineer by profession and lives in Singapore. The couple have two sons and a daughter.

Earlier in November, Lalu Prasad Yadav’s daughter Rohini took to Twitter and informed everyone about donating her kidney to the RJD chief.

“My father brought me up and means everything to me. I will consider myself to be extremely fortunate to contribute a small part of my life to saving his,” Rohini tweeted.
