Lalu Yadav, president of the Rashtriya Janata Dal, is undergoing a kidney transplant procedure; his daughter Rohini Acharya, who is the donor, underwent surgery before her father.
On Twitter, Ms. Acharya posted a picture of herself and her father before surgery and wrote that she is “ready to rock and roll” and requested good luck from her fans.
Mr. Yadav, who had kidney-related issues, was advised to have a transplant. Ms. Acharya, who identified herself as “destiny’s child,” said that she would be giving her father one of her kidneys.
The second daughter of the seasoned politician, Ms. Acharya, resides in Singapore and frequently tweets about them. Recently, she tweeted, “To me, my parents are the Gods. Anything I can do for them.”
Regarding the kidney donation, she had stated that she intended to offer her father “only a tiny part of the flesh.”
Dr. Misa Bharti, a Rajya Sabha member and the sister of former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Yadav, posted a status report from Singapore’s Mount Elizabeth Hospital, where the operation is being performed. She remarked, “Younger sister Rohini’s donor procedure was successful. She is currently in the ICU in perfect condition. Dad’s surgery is now ongoing.”
Mr. Yadav, a fodder fraud prisoner, is presently on bail owing to health concerns. He had been to Singapore earlier this year for medical treatment, but he had to return since the time limit set by a Delhi court for his international trip had passed. He is now receiving a kidney transplant in Singapore.
