Last updated on: August 25, 2014 10:44 IST

Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav was on Monday admitted to a hospital in Mumbai for a medical evaluation.

“This is a scheduled medical evaluation. There is no cause to panic,” a spokesperson for the Asian Heart Institute, located in suburban Bandra Kurla complex.

Asked if the 66-year-old leader would undergo a heart surgery, the spokesperson said, “That would be decided only after medical evaluation.”

Votes for the by-elections to 10 Assembly seats in Bihar fought by him in partnership with long-time rival Nitish Kumar, are being counted on Monday.
