Karnataka: Former Union minister Oscar Fernandes critical | Mangaluru News – Times of India


MANGALURU: Former union minister and Rajya Sabha member Oscar Fernandes was critically injured after he fell accidentally while doing his regular exercise on Monday.
The veteran Congress leader is in ICU at a private hospital in Mangaluru.
Udupi District Congress Committee president Ashok Kumar Kodavoor told TOI that he lost balance while doing the wall push ups and fell down in the morning.
“Initially, he did not take it very seriously, but later in the day he suffered a severe headache. While he had been to a routine dialysis at the hospital, he underwent further tests for headache. Since he had internal injuries, he was immediately admitted and on Tuesday he was shifted to ICU after his health condition worsened,” Kumar said.
Fernandes, 80, was the Union minister for transport, road and highways and labour and employment in the UPA government and he was also a minister of state (Independent charge) for labour and employment in Manmohan Singh’s first UPA government.
