Mumbai, July 8 (ANI): Doctors attending on Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray have said his condition is stable.

Samuel Mathew, a doctor who performed Thackeray's angioplasty last evening, said: "He was admitted with unstable Angioma. Angiogram showed critical block in one of the arteries.

Their bypass was already performed but that bypass was not perfectly working well. So decision was made to go ahead and open the blockade. The artery was fully opened. We are satisfied with his progress and he is doing very well."

Thackeray's son, Uddhav Thackeray, rushed to the hospital after arriving from the United States.

Party leaders were also present and prayed for his good health.

"I am confident that Bal Sahib would be fine and there is no need of worry," said Manohar Joshi, a senior leader of the party.

Thackeray was admitted to the Lilavati Hospital on Monday for a routine health check-up.

Thackeray was hospitalized last month after he complained of breathlessness. (ANI)
