Newly-appointed president of the BJP's state unit, C R Paatil, also wished the Union minister a speedy recovery.

"Hon'ble @AmitShah ji, Get well soon ! Wishing you a speedy recovery," he said on the micro-blogging site.

Surat MP Darshana Jardosh tweeted, "Praying for your good health and speedy recovery @AmitShah Ji."

Tweeting in Hindi, Union Minister of State for Shipping Mansukh Mandaviya said, "I pray to Lord Somnath soon that you soon become healthy and get involved in the service of the nation and nation building with the same energy. #GetWellSoonAmitShah."

Union Minister of State for Agriculture Parshottam Rupala said, "Honorable Home Minister, pray to Mahadev that you get well soon."
