Story highlights

Earlier on January 16, Shah was admitted to AIIMS due to swine flu.

Senior Congress leader BK Hariprasad on Friday claimed that he has a report which states that BJP president Amit Shah doesn't have any flu.

''We have a report that he (Amit Shah) doesn't have any flu. We also know people in All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and they said he is not admitted because of the flu,'' Hariprasad said.


BK Hariprasad on Thursday mocked Amit Shah over his health saying he contracted swine flu after his party failed in its attempt to topple the Congress-JDS government in Karnataka.

''As a few legislators have already come back, Amit Shah is shaken and has got fever. It is not a normal fever. It is swine flu,'' Hariprasad said in remarks made in Kannada in Bengaluru on Thursday.

''You should know that if you try to destabilise the Karnataka government, not just swine flu, you will get vomiting and dysentery also,'' he added. 

Shah will be discharged from hospital in a day or two after a bout of swine flu, a party spokesman said on Thursday.

Shah was admitted to AIIMS due to swine flu on Wednesday. BJP leader was admitted following complaints of chest congestion and breathing issues.
