MUMBAI: Former CM Manohar Joshi was admitted to hospital late Monday evening in a state of “emergency” and “semi-coma,” said a statement released Tuesday by Hinduja Hospital, Mahim. Doctors said the 85-year-old Joshi he had suffered complications from a hitherto undetected brain tumor.
The statement said he has complications from a brain tumor for which he is being medically managed in intensive care. “It is stable, but continues to need critical management,” the statement added.
Joshi was one of the closest associates of Shiv Sena’s founder, the late Balasaheb Thackeray. Affectionately referred to as “Joshi Sir” in political circles, he began his career by being elected to the legislative council by Shiv Sena in the 1970s. He was Mayor of Mumbai from 1976 to 1977 and became CM when the Shiv Sena-BJP coalition took office in 1995. He was elected MP from Bombay Central constituency, headed the Union Ministry of Heavy Industries and was elected Lok Sabha Speaker. He has also completed a six-year term as a Rajya Sabha MP.
