Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath, Governor Anandiben Patel, and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat shared the stage with him during the Ram Temple foundation.
Mathura district magistrate Sarvagya Ram Mishra, said, “We were informed that Maharaj-Ji has some fever, so we sent a team of doctors and they investigated and gave medicines. The fever is normal. He has mild breathlessness and we checked his oxygen level. It is saturated. There is nothing serious. We checked for coronavirus, did antigen test and there is positivity,”
Reportedly, UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath took stock of his health and directed district administration to shift him to Medanta hospital.
“The chief minister has directed that Maharajji be shifted to the Medanta Hospital and we are getting that done as soon as possible. Maharajji is stable,” Mishra added.
