PATNA: Jailed Rashriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad is said to be spending sleepless nights in view of severe level of stress griping him.
Prasad has come under severe stress soon after his elder son Tej Pratap Yadav sought divorce from his newly-wed wife Aishwarya Rai. The couple had got married only in May this year.
Hospital sources have told the media that the Prasad is restless on his bed these days and has not been able to get complete sleep. Prasad is currently admitted to the Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) in Ranchi.
“He is found awake whenever we visits his room for his checkup at night,” hospital sources told the media.
Doctors treating him said they were trying hard to lessen his strain lest his health trouble could multiply.
“Prasad has been under severe stress but we are not giving him medicines for it. We are trying to overcome his problem through counseling in the first place. We will provide him medicines only when the counseling fails to work,” Dr DK Jha who is treating Prasad told the media on Friday.
“Owing to stress, he is waking up late in the morning, thus delaying his breakfast and lunch,” Jha added.
Angry Tej Pratap has failed to get calmed down even after repeated appeals by Prasad during their meeting in the weekend.
Also, Tej Pratap has been away from home right since he filed the divorce petition in the court last week.
According to a PTI report, Tej Pratap has announced not to return home till his family backed his decision to divorce his wife of six months. He is currently in Haridwar.
