Uddhav Thackeray discharged after angiography

A feeble but cheerful Uddhav walked out of the hospital to a waiting vehicle in the evening and left for his Bandra (East) home 'Matoshri' even as thousands of anxious party workers and top leaders remained present outside the hospital premises all day long.

Uddhav underwent an angiography Monday afternoon in which a couple of blockages were detected in his heart. However, Sena officials refused to confirm or deny this.

Significantly, Uddhav was accompanied out of the hospital by his estranged cousin and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) Chief Raj Thackeray.

The two warring cousins met publicly after nearly four years as Raj cancelled his trip to Alibaug in neighbouring Raigad district and rushed to Mumbai this afternoon upon hearing of Uddhav's sudden illness.

Raj drove straight to the hospital and along with his mother, wife and other family members, visited Uddhav and enquired about his ailing cousin's health.
