Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee was on Monday admitted to Delhi’s All India Institute of Medical Sciences, for what the BJP and the hospital have termed a “routine check-up”. Following his admittance, top political leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress President Rahul Gandhi, visited the hospital to meet the BJP stalwart.
Earlier today, AIIMS, in its official statement, said that the former PM’s condition is stable and is undergoing some tests under the supervision of Randeep Guleria, pulmonologist and Director at the AIIMS.
Hearing the news of Vajpayee being admitted at the hospital, wishes for the former PM’s speedy recovery started pouring in on the micro-blogging site Twitter.
