PM Modi enquires about condition of Atal Bihari Vajpayee during AIIMS visit
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday enquired about the health and current condition of former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee during a visit to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
Modi visited the wing where the 93-year-old former prime minister is admitted, just after attending the event and spend 10-15 minutes there, a hospital source said.
The Saffron party leader had paid two earlier visits to the hospital to enquire about Vajpayee’s health.
Vajpayee was admitted to the AIIMS on 11 June with kidney infection, chest congestion, urinary tract infection and urine output on the lower side.
The former prime minister is a diabetic and has one functional kidney. He had suffered a stroke in 2009 that weakened his cognitive abilities. Subsequently, he developed dementia.
