At Yashoda hospital on Sunday, Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy met with former chief minister and leader of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi, K Chandrashekar Rao. On December 7, KCR had surgery to replace his entire left hip after he fell in his Erravalli farmhouse. Former Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was admitted to Yashoda Hospital earlier this week. According to the hospital, Rao has a left hip fracture and will likely need a left hip replacement, which could take six to eight weeks to heal.
“Kalvakuntla Chandrashekhar Rao Garu had a slip and fall in his Bathroom at his Residence and was subsequently brought to Yashoda Hospital for further care. On evaluation, including CT scans he was found to have a left Hip fracture (Extracapsular Neck of femur fracture). He would require left hip replacement for the same and the usual course of recovery for such cases is expected to be six to eight weeks,” the hospital said in a statement.
“He is being constantly monitored by a multi-disciplinary team including Orthopaedic, Anaesthesia, General Medicine, and Pain Medicine. His general condition is stable. The hospital will update his health status periodically,” it added.
Meanwhile, on the direction of Telangana CM Revanth Reddy, Secretary of Health Medical and Family Welfare visited Yashoda Hospital to inquire about the health of former CM K Chandrashekar Rao.
While his daughter K Kavitha reported that the former Telangana chief minister had suffered a minor injury, Prime Minister Narendra Modi prayed for his recovery. “I’m sad to hear that KCR Garu, the former chief minister of Telangana, has sustained an injury. “I hope he heals quickly and stays healthy,” PM Modi wrote in a post on X. Additionally, on X, K Kavitha posted that former Telangana chief minister KCR had suffered a minor injury and was receiving medical attention from professionals.
