NEW DELHI: The formerly conjoined twins, Jaga and Kalia, who were separated after a marathon surgery last month, on Sunday had a surprise visitor at their bedside in AIIMS, New Delhi.
Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik visited the Delhi hospital to enquire about their health and prayed for their speedy recovery, an official in the CM's office said.
He also discussed the progress in their treatment with AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria and doctor and faculty member Ashok Mohapatra, he said.
The director explained that both the children were recuperating well under constant supervision.
"The doctors informed the CM that Jaga is stable but Kalia, who is still under intensive care, is improving gradually," the official said.
Stating that the critical period for the twins was over, Mohapatra further said that the kids were responding well to their treatment.
"The twins seem to be getting on very well. I thanked the doctors for the remarkable job they are doing. I am also praying for their quick recovery and good health," said Patnaik.
The 29-month-old twins from Kandhamal district in Odisha were born joined at the head and had to undergo a 22-hour-long surgery at AIIMS in Delhi on October 25 and 26.
