New Delhi: The condition of former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee, who was admitted to the AIIMS with urinary tract infection, lower respiratory tract infection and kidney issues, is stable.

Ninety-three-yea-old former Prime Minister was admitted to the AIIMS on Monday. Medical bulletin issued by the AIIMS said, “His condition is stable. He is responding to treatment and is on injectable antibiotics. All his vital parameters are stable. He will continue to be in hospital till infection is controlled”.

 

According to well-placed source, a team of doctors led AIIMS director Randeep Guleria evaluated his condition and he continues to remain in the ICU of the cardio-thoracic centre of AIIMS. Mr Vajpayee underwent dialysis on Monday.

Former Prime Ministers Manmohan Singh and H.D. Deve Gowda and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat were prominent names who visited Mr Vajpayee on Tuesday.

Union minister Ashwini Kumar Choubey, P.P. Choudhary, Kalraj Mishra, Vijay Goel, Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti were also visited former Prime Minister. Other leaders who visited Mr Vajpayee were Lok Sabha deputy Speaker M. Thambidurai, veteran BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi and MDMK leader Vaiko. Sources said that vice-president M.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah and Congress president Rahul Gandhi visited Mr Vajpayee on Monday.

Pankaj Jain, treasurer of Delhi BJP Yuva Morcha, performed a ‘havan’ outside gate number one of the hospital, praying for Mr Vajpayee’s quick recovery and long life.

Yesterday, the AIIMS said Mr Vajpayee, who has been ailing for long, was admitted for routine check-up and investigations. The BJP, yesterday, said in a statement that Mr Shah had a detailed discussion with the doctors about Vajpayee’s treatment and also met the former prime minister’s family members at the hospital.

 

Mr Vajpayee was thrice elected the prime minister between 1996 and 1999 and is the only non-Congress prime minister to complete the full term of five years, from 1999 to 2004. As his health deteriorated, he had slowly withdrawn himself from public life and was confined to his residence for years.
