Jamshedpur, May 4: Former Chief Minister Arjun Munda was rushed to the Tata Main Hospital ( TMH) in Bistupur on Thursday morning, after he complained of uneasiness while on his way to Baripada ( in Odisha ) from Jamshedpur. After initial examination, the doctors on duty advised him to be admitted.
The 49-year-old senior BJP leader felt uneasy when the SUV on which he was travelling reached Khasmahal (near the Tatanagar railway station) at around 9 am on way to Baripada where he was supposed to visit the house of Sanatan Munda, national president of Bharat Munda Samaj, who died on May 2.
Munda’s press adviser, Sudhakar Choudhary said his condition was stable. However, in the morning the former Chief Minister also vomited after which he was immediately taken to the hospital. “The former Chief Minister has been touring different parts of the state since April 14.
