Union Minister and LJP president Ramvilas Paswan was on Thursday evening admitted to the ICU of a private hospital here after he complained of breathlessness. 

His younger brother and Bihar LJP president Pashupati Kumar Paras told PTI from the hospital that the minister complained of breathlessness and was taken to the hospital around 8:30 PM where doctors were examining him. 

Officer on Special Duty (OSD) to the minister R C Meena told PTI that Paswan was admitted to the ICU of Paras hospital. 

Paswan may be air lifted to Delhi tomorrow for better treatment. 

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav called up Paswan’s doctor at the hospital to inquire about his health. Pasawan’s cabinet colleague and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh also inquired about his health. 

As the news of Paswan's admission in the hospital spread, LJP supporters started gathering outside the hospital on Bailey road here. 

Paswan, Union Minister for Food and Consumer Affairs, earlier arrived here today on a four-day tour of the state during which he had some political engagements in Patna, Khagaria, Begusarai and Mokamah before hosting Makarsankranti feast in Patna on January 15. 

LJP spokesman Ashraf Ansari said that the minister's wife and MP son Chirag Paswan are with him in the hospital.
