Kathmandu, July 20: Nepali Congress General Secretary, Dr Shashank Koirala, has returned home following an improvement in his health condition.
He came out of the hospital waving to the party cadres and his well wishers. He was helped by Dr Bhola Rijal, Dr Harish Joshi and spouse Dr Supatra Koirala onto his vehicle.
He was admitted to Om Hospital in Chabahil on July 5. He has been asked to revisit the hospital for a follow-up health treatment, Dr Rijal said.
