Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president Amit Shah, who was undergoing treatment for Swine Flu at AIIMS Delhi, got discharged on Sunday.

"BJP President Amit Shah has been discharged from AIIMS Delhi where he was admitted for his treatment of swine flu," Rajya Sabha MP and BJP leader Anil Baluni said.

Shah thanked his well-wishers for their blessings and confirmed the news of his discharge.

Shah had informed people about his illness on Wednesday in a tweet. He wrote, “ I have been diagnosed with swine flu for which the treatment is underway. With God's grace and good wishes from all of you, I will recover soon.”

A team of doctors was monitoring his condition under the supervision of AIIMS director Randeep Guleria, the hospital had said.

Congress leader BK Hariprasad had on Thursday invited controversy by mocking Amit Shah’s illness on Thursday. Taking the political discourse to a new low, the Congress MP said, "Amit Shah has got fever due to panic. He panicked as some MLAs (of the Congress) have come back. If he topples the Congress-JD(S) government, then he will have vomiting and lose motions. That is why he got swine fever."

“Amit Shah is suffering from ‘suar ka zukam’ and was cursed by the people of Karnataka,” the MP further added.

The BJP veteran had reached AIIMS at around 9 pm and was admitted to the old private ward of the hospital.
