PM Modi wishes Congress Leader
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday wished Congress leader Ajay Maken a speedy recovery. Mr Maken, who is abroad for treatment, replied that he is suffering from an “irreversible and progressive orthopaedic ailment, which is extremely painful, but not life-threatening”.
“Ajay Maken has some health problem and has gone for a medical check-up. He has temporarily stepped down for his check-up and informed me and the Congress president (Rahul Gandhi). He’ll be back next week and probably he’s little worried that he can’t devote full time or travel the way he wants,” said Mr Chacko
Delhi Congress spokesperson Sharmishtha Mukherjee also asserted that the “resignation of Ajay Maken is completely a rumour”. Another leader, Mukesh Sharma, said Mr Maken would address a ‘mahapanchayat’ of 365 villages against “illegal” sealing on Sunday.
