New Delhi, Apr 17: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday called up Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, who met with an accident at a temple in Thiruvananthapuram on April 15 in which he sustained head injury, and enquired about his health.

''Thank you @rajnathsingh for your call. I am touched by your concern. By the grace of God I am well enough to be back in action,'' Mr Tharoor tweeted. Responding to Mr Tharoor's tweet, Mr Singh in a tweet said, ''Shashiji, Don’t mention it.. I hope you recover completely very soon.

Mr Tharoor sustained the head injury while performing 'Thulabharam' at Gandhari Amman temple in Thiruvananthapuram, leading to the cancellation of his scheduled election tour. Though his condition is out of danger, repeated scan images of his head are being examined by an expert medical team, sources said.

Thulabharam is a practice in temples where the devotee is weighed against materials, which are then offered to God. The Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha MP was injured when the iron rod of a balance on which he was sitting broke and fell on his head. UNI
