Mumbai: Shiv Sena supremo Bal Keshav Thackeray’s health has gone from bad to worse. After being serious, he is now critical and has been put on an artificial ventilator since early evening on Wednesday.
If insiders are to be believed, Thackeray has also stopped responding to medical treatment.
A set of portable life support system was also discreetly transported inside Thackeray's residence, Matoshree, late on Wednesday.
"Balasaheb is on liquid diet since a couple of months and entire food intake is through IV but since last night, his system has stopped responding and he has not spoken a word or reverted through actions,” a source revealed.
He is also believed to have witnessed a kidney failure that is being attended by the team of doctors, headed by Dr Jaleel Parkar, at Matoshree.
Since last two hours, old party loyalists have been visiting Matoshree after the news of Balasheb's health scare spread.
Mumbai Police has also started assigning reserved forces at Matoshree which has also indicated about Thackeray's bad health. Around 1,000 men have been deployed outside Matoshree.
