Kathmandu, Oct. 31: Prime Minister K.P Sharma Oli has appealed to all not to get misled by the information published in social media concerning his health and said there was no reason to worry much about his health condition.
“I would like to express my sincere thanks to you all who for expressing your concerns about my health condition and for wishing my speedy recovery as I am currently receiving medication at Manamohan Cardiothoracic Vascular and Transplant Centre of the TU Teaching Hospital, Maharajgunj,” Prime Minister Oli said issuing a press statement Tuesday afternoon.
“I am aware of the propaganda used by some digital media with ill-intention to sensationalise the baseless news about my health condition and I urge you not to get worried and misled from such baseless reports,” PM Oli said.
Prime Minister Oli said he would return home from the hospital soon and involve himself in materialising the dream of making Nepal prosperous.
“As per the information given to me by the doctors I will return home from the hospital very soon,” PM Oli said.
He said he was confident in getting support and good wishes from all people.
The Prime Minister, in the statement, clarified that he chose to come to the hospital to avert possible infection after he was attacked by viral common cold.
In another context, Prime Minister Oli said that he was sensitive towards some incidents that had happened in some parts of the country recently.
“The government could not accept any such untoward incidents that are intended at creating chaos, disturbing mutual harmony that are maintained in our religious, cultural and political sectors,” Prime Minister Oli said.
The elements creating disturbance and disharmony in the country would not be spared by the state and the security unit, he said, adding they would be brought under legal frame, he said.
“Riots, mobs and violence which may disturb social harmony would only weaken good governance,” he said.
Prime Minister Oli also thanked President, Vice-president, political leaders, constitutional body members in the nation and abroad and employees, among others, who wished him speedy recovery.
In the evening’s health bulletin, doctors attending Prime Minister Oli at the TU Teaching Hospital said that his chest infection was gradually healing while fever was under control.
“Prime Minister Oli will be kept under doctor’s observation for a minimum of two days,” Dr. Arun Sayami and Coordinator of the team providing treatment to the PM, said while speaking at a press conference organised at the TUTH this morning.
Dr. Sayami said that the Prime Minister took his lunch and held two conversations with his relatives who came to visit him at the hospital.
A team of doctors led by Dr. Arun Sayami, including PM Oli’s personal doctor Dibya Singh Shah, and Dr. Santa Kumar Dash, are taking care of the Prime Minister.
He has been receiving treatment at the CCU ward of the ground floor of the Centre since Monday.
“X-ray report of the chest of PM Oli and his blood report were also found positive and his health report is improving,” stated the press release issued at 5:00 pm.
Meanwhile, the hospital has asked visitors not to meet him saying that his contact with people might increase the risk of infection.
