Former chief minister of Telangana and BRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao has been admitted to Yashoda Hospital in Hyderabad’s Somajiguda after sustaining injuries from a fall.
Rao fell down after his leg slipped at his Erravalli farm house on Thursday. He reportedly broke his left hip bone after the fall. The suspected fracture might require surgery as well. He is currently undergoing treatment.
According to the Health Bulletin released by Yashoda Hospital, it has been confirmed that CT scans found that KCR has a left Hip fracture (Intracapsular Neck of femur fracture). The former Telangana chief minister will require a left hip replacement, the usual recovery course for which is expected to be six to eight weeks.
The bulletin noted that KCR is under constant monitoring by a multi-disciplinary team including Orthopaedic, Anaethesia, General Medicine, and Pain Medicine. The BRS chief’s general condition is stable.
Earlier, BRS MLC Kavitha posted an update on KCR’s condition on X and had said that he is currently under expert care in the hospital.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi also expressed concern over KCR’s injuries. Taking to microblogging site X, he 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 dream to become a first hat-trick chief minister in South India was shattered as the grand old party Congress won the Telangana Assembly polls in a landslide victory.
This was the third election to the Assembly after the formation of new state. The Bharat Rashtra Samithi had come to power in the first two elections and it had hoped to do a hat-trick by winning the polls for a third-time.
In the final tally of the Assembly polls, Congress registered its landslide win with 64 seats, while BRS won 39 seats.
Reports suggest that one of the reasons behind KCR’s defeat was his overconfidence. The leader showed overconfidence by expecting that people will once again take the party on victory path after seeing his rule. And although people have a good opinion of KCR and his government, their opposition against the local MLAs led them to vote out the party.
BRS working president KT Rama Rao had also admitted in an interview that they advised KCR that the party will win 100 seats if new faces are fielded in the polls, instead of the sitting MLAs. The results, however, ended up proving KCR’s mistake of fielding the sitting MLAs.
Congress picked Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee chief Revanth Reddy to be the chief minister of the state. Reddy took oath at the Lal Bahadur Stadium in Hyderabad on Thursday.
