Even as the members of Shiv Sena remain tensed about the health of their ailing leader Bal Thackeray, the party leaders said the Sena chief has shown signs of improvement and was getting better.
The leaders hoped that Thackeray, who made an astonishing recovery, would soon come out to give “darshan” to his followers.
However, the positive signs of Thackeray’s health have not allayed the concerns of people waiting for his speedy recovery, outside the Thackeray’s residence, “Matoshree”.
Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut, also the editor of party mouth piece Saamana, said, “Things have improved from yesterday, his pulse and heartbeat rate are normal and so is his blood pressure.”
He added that Thackeray’s health had improved to such an extent that even doctors have been amazed at the way he has recovered. The same team of doctors who have been treating him for the past four years are monitoring his health, he said.
When asked why the doctors were not issuing medical bulletins or talking to the media about Thackeray’s health, Raut said that there was no need to issue the bulletin as the family members were in touch with the doctors.
Meanwhile BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu, Baba Ramdev, actor Sanjay Khan visited “Matoshree”. Pakistani cricketer Javed Miandad wished him a speedy recovery telephonically to a regional channel.
Years ago Miandad had visited Thackeray at his residence. Raj Thackeray was conspicuous by his absence on Friday.
