He said Atchannaidu was responding well to treatment and his condition was stable. He said that presently the wound has been ruptured due to travelling long distance for hours.
Doctors were treating the would and prescribed. It will take at least two to three days for the pain to subside. If his condition deteriorated, another surgery would be performed on Atchannaidu, Dr Sudkhakar said.
Dr Sudhakar explained Atchannaidu’s health condition to TD supremo N. Chandrababu Naidu who came to GGH on Saturday evening.
Responding to reports of the TD leader’s conditions, Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy on Saturday directed officials to provide Atchannaidu with good treatment either at GGH or any other hospital.
TD leaders alleged that the YSRC government was responsible for the deteriorating health of Atchhaidu for the rude behaviour of police for deterioration of their leader’s health condition.
Atchannaidu’s nephew and TD MP K. Rammohan Naidu alleged that the police took Atchannaidu forcibly from the house at Nimmada to Vijayawada without proper precautions.
