Two dermatologists were sent to Rajahmundry Central Jail to examine skin rashes on Nara Chandrababu Naidu, the former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh and TDP president. The dermatologists were sent from Rajahmundry Government General Hospital (GGH) at the request of the prison department. Surya Prabha, the Superintendent of Rajahmundry GGH, stated that the dermatologists examined Naidu’s skin rashes and provided his medical papers to prison officials. They also gave instructions to the officials regarding his health condition.
The decision to send the dermatologists came after TDP leaders, including Nara Lokesh and Nara Brahmani, expressed concern over Naidu’s health condition. They cited his skin allergy and dehydration as reasons for their concern. In a tweet, Lokesh Nara mentioned the threat to Naidu’s life and the challenges he is facing in the prison, such as mosquitoes, contaminated water, weight loss, infections, and allergies. Brahmani Nara also tweeted about the inadequate and unsanitary prison conditions that pose a risk to Naidu’s health.
In response to these concerns, the TDP leaders demanded that expert doctors be allowed to attend to Chandrababu and that he be admitted to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Mangalagiri for better treatment.
