KATHMANDU: The Nepali Congress (NC) has said that lawmaker Pradip Giri’s health condition is improving.
Issuing a statement on Thursday, NC Whip Min Bahadur Bishwokarma informed Giri had returned to Nepal a few months ago after undergoing successfully treatment for throat cancer in different hospitals of Mumbai in India.
Giri was admitted to Nepal Mediciti Hospital in Lalitpur soon after his return as he was diagnosed with pneumonia. He is currently undergoing treatment at the hospital.
According to doctors and family sources, his health is showing gradual improvement, said the statement.
Giri had gone to Mumbai for treatment in August last year after experiencing health problems.
Similarly, another NC lawmaker Karma Ghale is undergoing treatment at Nepal Cancer Hospital and Research Center in Harisiddhi, Lalitpur.
