Nearly two days after he underwent angioplasty at Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai, senior Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut was discharged on Wednesday noon.

Mr. Raut, 57, had undergone angioplasty on Monday evening.

“Next Chief Minister of Maharashtra will be from the Shiv Sena,” Mr. Raut said while leaving the hospital around 1 p.m.

“He will have to undergo another check-up after some days to assess the progress of the angioplasty procedure,” said one of his family members.

Mr. Raut visited the Lilavati Hospital on Monday evening after he complained of mild pains in chest. He was treated by Dr Jaleel Parkar.

Mr. Raut, the executive editor of the Sena’s mouthpiece Saamana, became the face of the party’s repeated demand for chief ministership for 2.5 years and 50:50 split in portfolios ever since poll results were announced on October 24.

Since October 24, the journalist-politician has been holding media briefings everyday and posting tweets to hit out at the BJP for not “honouring” the power-sharing “agreement” between the saffron parties which stalled government formation in Maharashtra.
