Vilasrao Deshmukh critical, family forbids health bulletin

Tuesday August 07, 2012 08:41:27 PM, IANS

Chennai: The condition of union Science and Technology Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, admitted to the Global Hospital here, continues to be critical, an official said, adding his family members have declined permission to issue a medical bulletin about his status.

"Deshmukh's condition continues to be critical. However we are not in a position to issue a medical bulletin as the union minister's family refused permission for that." the official told IANS, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Told that Deshmukh is not just an individual but also a union minister, the official said the hospital is helpless as the family has not given the nod.

Earlier a senior hospital official had told IANS that a statement about the health condition of Deshmukh would be issued in the afternoon.

With no such official communication forthcoming from the hospital and the family, speculation was rife about Deshmukh's condition.

"He is alive. Many of the media reports are speculative in nature," the official said.

Hospital officials refused to confirm or deny the reports that Deshmukh is on ventilator/life support systems.

Officials at Global Hospital said that Deshmukh is in the intensive care unit (ICU) for serious liver ailment.

"The ward is out of bounds except for doctors and para medical staff," he said.

Queried about whether a liver transplant is being looked at, the official said: "As far as the information with me, the attending doctors are not planning any transplant for two days."

He said the health parameters of Deshmukh has to be stabilised first before any transplant operation is considered.

Liver specialist Mohammed Rela is attending to the former Maharashtra chief minister.

Deshmukh, 67, was rushed to the hospital Monday evening from Mumbai's Breach Candy hospital in an air ambulance.

"From the Chennai airport he was brought to our hospital in our ambulance," the official said.

Deshmukh's family members are with him.

Deshmukh, who had been complaining of abdominal pain for a while, had been taken to Breach Candy Hospital last week for what was described as "a routine check-up".

For the last few months, Deshmukh has been taking light assignments to avoid strain on account of his health condition, a Congress official indicated.
