KATHMANDU, Oct 31: Co-chairman of Nepal Communist Party Pushpa Kamal Dahal visited Grande International Hospital to take the stock of the Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli's health condition.
The prime minister underwent dialysis at the hospital for a second time today.
Dahal reached Grande at 2 pm and spent nearly one hour to receive the updates from the doctors regarding the prime minister's health condition. "The doctors told us that the prime minister's health condition is gradually improving. He will be discharged from the hospital later this evening," Dahal told reporters on the hospital premises a while ago.
Dahal was accompanied by NCP General Secretary Bishnu Poudel.
Likewise, NCP leaders Narayan Kaji Shrestha and Bhim Rawal also visited the hospital to take the stock of the prime minister's health condition.
"The doctors told us that the prime minister's health condition is normal," Shrestha, who is also the spokesperson of the party, told reporters.
However, the hospital administration did not allow the party leaders to meet the ailing prime minister as he was undergoing dialysis.
NCP leader Rawal said that the prime minister was undergoing dialysis. "The prime minister will be discharged soon," he said.
Oli underwent the first round of dialysis earlier on Wednesday afternoon. After having high-fever, the prime minister was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday morning.
Amid speculations, the hospital administration said on Wednesday evening that PM Oli's health condition has been normal and stable adding that he would be discharged by Thursday. However, the hospital administration did not disclose that Oli underwent dialysis.
