The Indian leader specified that he welcomed as a "positive event" the favorable clinical reports concerning Chávez's "stabilization" after undergoing surgery in Cuba for the fourth time due to his cancer. Mukherjee added that he was praying for Chávez's quick recovery.
In his message, Mukherjee hopes that the Venezuelan leader will have enough "strength and courage to overcome his troubles" and delivered to Venezuela a token of support from the "people of India," Efe quoted.
India-Venezuela relations mostly rely on the energy business.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
