Patanjali CEO and Yoga guru Ramdev’s close aide Acharya Balkrishna was discharged from AIIMS on Saturday. Balakrishna,47, was rushed to AIIMS, Rishikesh on Friday in a state of altered consciousness, when he failed to recognise his immediate surroundings. He was discharged after being kept under observation of a team of specialists at the ICU for nearly 24 hours. “We have done ECG, MRI, Liver Function Test, Electrolyte test, Kidney Function Test, BP etc, and they suggest he is normal. He will be all right in the next few hours,” said Director Ravi Kant from AIIMS.
Baba Ramdev also has shared an update on the health of his close aide saying, “With your wishes and God’s grace Acharya Bal Krishna is getting better. After eating a ‘Prasad’ today, he got dizzy and fell unconscious. I am not saying that there was some foul thing in the prasad. He was brought here and tests were conducted and now 80 to 90 per cent, he is fine.” Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat visited the hospital to enquire after Balakrishna’s health.
