DP Yadav to undergo surgery on Oct 19, hospital tells SC Delhi CM to contest all 13 LS seats in Pb
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Thursday was apprised by a super-speciality hospital here that Uttar Pradesh politician D P Yadav, facing life term in the MLA murder case, would undergo spinal surgery on October 19.
Yadav was awarded life imprisonment by a Dehradun CBI court in 2015 for his role in the murder of Mahendra Singh Bhati, an MLA from Ghaziabad’s Dadri area. The lawmaker was shot dead at Dadri railway crossing in December 1992.
Yashoda Superspeciality Hospital at Ghaziabad, in its medical report filed in pursuance of an earlier order, told a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi that Yadav’s viral fever has gone now and he would be operated upon by using local anaesthesia on October 19.
The bench, also comprising Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph, considered the report and extended the interim bail of the controversial politician for undergoing the surgery. It also directed the hospital to furnish a fresh report on October 22 and fixed the matter for hearing a day after.
After perusing the report, the court today said the surgery, which was said to be a complicated one, can be done through laproscpoic method by using local anaesthesia.
Earlier, the apex court had directed the hospital to furnish a report whether Yadav was fit to undergo spinal surgery and had cautioned him against taking any “undue advantage”. CHANDIGARH: Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party’s national convener Arvind Kejriwal Thursday said his party will contest all the 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab and not enter into alliance.
“We will fight on all Lok Sabha seats from the state, we will not enter into any tie-up with anyone,” Kejriwal, who was in Bathinda to attend a party legislator’s wedding, told reporters. He lashed out at the ruling Congress in the state and accused it of failing on all fronts.
“He (Amarinder) had promised to give a job in each family. He had said if anyone is unemployed then he will be given unemployment allowance, he had talked about raising social security pension, waiving debt of farmers, promised smartphones to youths. Only tall promises were made, but none have been fulfilled. He spoke lies and now people of Punjab are fed up with them,” he alleged.
