'Party stood beside me'

After being discharged from the hospital in Gurugram on Tuesday, the BJP leader took to his Twitter handle, saying "I have returned home thanks to the good wishes from all of you. However, complete recovery will take some more time."

Patra was admitted to the Medanta Hospital in Gurgaon two weeks ago after showing symptoms of coronavirus.

He said that during this difficult time, the party has taken care of him and the leadership stood beside him. Patra also added that the party is his family.

He was discharged from the hospital late Sunday night. The doctors marked Pathra's discharge from the hospital after his re-investigation report was found negative.

Although the tests showed negative reports, the doctors have now instructed Patra to stay at home for a few days.
