Former Telangana CM KCR Successfully Undergoes Surgery In Hyderabad
Hyderabad: Former Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao underwent a successful hip replacement surgery on Friday night in Hyderabad, as per a bulletin released by Yashoda Hospital. Earlier, Bharat Rashtra Samithi leader Dasoju Sravan informed on Thursday that the surgery was successful and that he is likely to be discharged from the hospital soon.
“He tolerated the surgery well and remained hemodynamically stable throughout the procedure,” the bulletin from Yashoda Hospital read, as per The Hindu.
"Former CM of Telangana and BRS party national leader KCR's hip replacement surgery is successful. Almost in about 1 and a half hours, the doctors performed the most critical surgery. As for the reports of the doctors, the surgery was very successful," Sravan told ANI in Hyderabad.
The hospital bulletin released on Friday afternoon indicated a hip fracture which then led to the left hip replacement surgery. The expected recovery time in such cases is six to eight weeks, The Hindu reported, citing the bulletin.
The BRS party chief sustained a hip fracture at his Erravelli farmhouse. Prime Minister Narendra Modi wished for a speedy recovery for the former Telangana CM. PM Modi, on X, wrote, "Distressed to know that former Telangana CM Shri KCR Garu has suffered an injury. I pray for his speedy recovery and good health."
KCR's BRS suffered a crushing defeat in the recently concluded assembly polls. In the recent Telangana elections, the Congress clinched 64 seats out of the 119-member Telangana assembly, while the BRS secured 39 seats. This marked the first defeat for the BRS since the formation of Telangana in 2014.
