Former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s condition stable

The All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) released the medical bulletin on Tuesday on the health of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee stating that his condition is stable. 

The 93-year-old veteran politician is unlikely to be discharged today, the bulletin added.

A host of leaders visited Vajpayee to enquire about his condition. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also visited the former prime minister Monday night and spent nearly 50 minutes at the hospital. 

MDMK Chief Vaiko also visited the hospital on Tuesday.

BJP workers conducted havan in Kanpur to pray for his speedy recovery.
