    Former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s Condition Worsens, Critical: AIIMS

    New Delhi: Former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s health has worsened over last 24 hours and is critical, an official statement by AIIMS said late on Wednesday evening.

    93-year-old Mr Vajpayee was admitted to the hospital about nine weeks back.

    The statement was issued hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited AIIMS this evening to enquire about the condition of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee who is undergoing treatment there.

    PM Modi reached the hospital at around 7.15 pm and spent about 50 minutes there.

    Railway Minister Piyush Goyal, BJP lawmaker Meenakshi Lekhi and Union Textiles Minister Smriti Irani had visited the hospital to check on Mr Vajpayee.

    Mr Vajpayee, a diabetic patient, is undergoing treatment at AIIMS since June 11. He was admitted to the hospital for what doctors had described as a routine check-up.

    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 As his health deteriorated, he had slowly withdrawn himself from public life and was confined to his residence for years.
