Vilasrao Deshmukh
Chennai, Aug 14: It seems that Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's efforts to find a liver for Vilasrao Deshmukh went in vain. The former Maharashtra Chief Minister is reportedly likely to get liver and kidney from a driver who has been declared brain dead in a hospital in Chennai.

According to sources, a team of doctors may plan for kidney and liver transplantation on Vilasrao if his health condition does not deteriorate. The critical surgery may continue for more than 12 hours.

The 31-year-old donor, who was a driver by profession, was reportedly hit by an ambulance and got serious head injuries on Saturday, Aug 11.

67-year-old Vilasrao was diagnosed with liver cancer and was rushed to Chennai as his health condition deteriorated. He was admitted in Chennai hospital on Aug 7.

Earlier on Sunday, the Gujarat CM had asked the Gujarat health department to arrange cadaver liver for the Union Minister for Heavy Industries.

While tweeting from his personal Twitter account, Modi tweeted, "Instructed Gujarat's health department to procure cadaver liver on top priority for Vilasrao Deshmukh, who is undergoing treatment."

Meanwhile, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs, Rajeev Shukla also tweeted, "My friend vilas rao deshmukh is in hospital he immediately needs full liver for transplant only dead brain patient's liver can be taken (sic)."

"if anyone known to someone can get done his life can be saved today I went to c hm in chennai hospital pl try save his life," urged Mr Shukla while tweeting.
