Ahmedabad: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday enquired about the health of former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, who was injured in a freak accident on Friday night. "Spoke to Lalu ji this morning asking him about his health after an accident yesterday. Hope he gets back to the best of the health soon," Modi tweeted.
RJD president Lalu Prasad had sustained injuries on his head and face when the windshield of his car broke and shards of glass hit him when he was going to Vaishali district on late Friday night.
After receiving treatment in a private hospital, Yadav is expected to go for a party programme later in the day. Prasad's PA said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Speaker Meira Kumar and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi rang up the RJD president to enquire about his health after the accident.
Actor turned BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha also talked to him. Sinha told reporters, "He is a good friend and it's a courtesy call to enquire about his injuries. No political meaning should be attached to it."
