Rahul Gandhi wishes quick recovery to actor and DMDK leader Vijayakant

Actor-turned-politician Vijayakant has been admitted to MIOT hospital in Chennai due to his deteriorating health.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, on Wednesday, November 29, expressed concern over health condition of actor and Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) founder Vijayakant and wished him a quick recovery.

In a post on Facebook, Rahul said, "Deeply concerned to hear about the health condition of actor and DMDK founder, Shri Vijayakanth. I join millions of his fans and followers in sending him best wishes for a quick recovery. My love and support to Shri Vijayakanth’s family, who are passing through this difficult time."

The Tamil actor-turned-politician was admitted to a hospital in the city on Wednesday. Friend and actor Sarath Kumar posted on Twitter that it was part of a routine check-up. MIOT Hospital, where he is admitted, released a statement saying that the politician will have to remain admitted for an additional 14 days as though there has been an improvement in his health. His condition has been unstable in the last 24 hours, necessitating pulmonary treatment, the hospital said.

In a short video message by his wife Premalatha, she said that there was no reason to panic or to be afraid. "It was a routine announcement made by the hospital. The doctors, party leaders and I are taking good care of him. He will recover completely and come back home and meet each of you. Your prayers and all the dharmam he has done will definitely save him. I ask all the cadres and party leaders who have come together not to be afraid. We will update you on when he will be back home. Until then, please do not spread rumours. Be brave,” she said.
