August 2, 2012 - Mumbai

Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray has been discharged from the Lilavati Hospital in Bandra on Wednesday afternoon. The Shiva Sena chief has spent eight days in the hospital after he was hospitalized. Though an endoscopy was expected to be performed on Thackeray, he was discharged without any such procedure. Hyderabad-based interventional gastroenterologist Nageshwar Reddy was to perform the surgery on Thackeray.

According to a doctor at the Lilavati hospital, Thackeray's condition is now stable and the doctors are closely monitoring his medical condition. Thackeray was admitted in the hospital on July 24 after he complained of breathlessness. He spent two days in the ICU and was shifted to a special room in the 11th floor.

Dr. Parkar said, "After a closed-door conversation between Bal Thackeray, Uddhav Thackeray, anaesthetist Dr. Satish Kulkarni and interventional gastroenterologist Nageshwar Reddy, it was decided that endoscopy would be performed only after observing the senior Thackeray’s health for a few days."

Several senior politicians have visited Thackeray in the hospital in the past eight days. Among those who met Thackeray are NCP chief Sharad Pawar, BJP leaders Nitin Gadkari and Gopinath Munde, MNS chief Raj Thackeray, Shiv Sena leaders Manohar Joshi, Subhash Desi etc.
