Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli from the hospital bed has said that he will return soon and expressed his commitment to work actively to fulfill the dream of making Nepal a prosperous nation.

He expressed his commitment while issuing a message to inform general public about his health condition.

“According to the information provided by the doctors, I will return home soon from the hospital and will contribute to achieving our common interest of making Nepal a prosperous nation,” he said in the message, adding “I am hopeful that I will get support and help from all the people of nation like in the past.”

Prime Minister Oli has urged all not to be swayed by the rumours made in some social sites and digital media about his health, terming them baseless publicity. 

“I know some people have been making baseless rumors about my health condition through insensitive posts in social media sites,” he said. “I urge all the people not be guided from such kind of rumours,” PM added.

Meanwhile, as per the suggestion of doctors involved in his treatment, the hospital has barred people from meeting the Prime Minister in view of his health condition.

The hospital said that it has decided to bar the people from meeting the Prime Minister citing that meeting with many people could increase risk of infections.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the hospital said that its first priority is to make the Prime Minister healthy.

“The hospital’s first priority is to make the Prime Minister healthy as early as possible and people were barred from meeting him as per the suggestion of the doctors,” the statement read.

PM Oli was admitted to Manmohan Cardiothoracic Vascular and Transplant Centre in Maharajgunj, Kathmandu, on early Monday morning after he complained of chest pain and breathing difficulty.

The Prime Minister also thanked President, Vice-President, leaders of various political parties, constitutional bodies, diplomatic agencies and office bearers and all the people at home and abroad for wishing a full and speedy recovery of him.

Earlier this afternoon, doctors involved in his treatment said that the health condition of PM Oli has improved further.

A team of doctors including Dr Arun Shayami, Dr Divya Singh, and his personal physician, Dr Santa Das, has been attending on Oli.

PM Oli had undergone transplant surgery of both kidneys in India in 2007. Since then, he has remained under strict medical observation that entails visiting Thailand regularly for medical check-ups.

More recently, the prime minister had undergone a prostate surgery in India in 2014.
