May 21, 2018-National Poet Madhav Prasad Ghimire has been admitted at Dhapasi-based Grande Hospital for the past two weeks.

Family sources said Ghimire, 99, has been receiving treatment for chronic gastritis and high blood pressure. His son Indibar Ghimire said he was ill for the past couple of months and was admitted to Grande Hospital 15 days ago. Indibar said his health condition, however, has not improved.

Ghimire’s son said doctors involved in his treatment have advised him be flown abroad for further treatment. But he cannot be flown in a normal plane due to his age.
