Vajpayee’s con­di­tion sta­ble: AIIMS re­port

The Hitavada - - PASTIME -

FOR­MER Prime Min­is­ter Atal Be­hari Vajpayee was on Tues­day re­spond­ing well to his treat­ment for uri­nary tract in­fec­tion at the AIIMS, which is see­ing a bee­line of lead­ers from var­i­ous po­lit­i­cal par­ties want­ing to en­quire about his health.

“His con­di­tion is sta­ble. He is re­spond­ing to treat­ment and is on in­jectable an­tibi­otics. All vi­tal pa­ram­e­ters are sta­ble. He will con­tinue to be in hos­pi­tal till the in­fec­tion is con­trolled,” AIIMS me­dia and pro­to­col di­vi­sion Chair­per­son Aarti Vij said on Tues­day.

In a late Tues­day evening up­date, the hos­pi­tal said Vajpayee’s con­di­tion con­tin­ued to re­main sta­ble. “Vajpayee is sta­ble. He con­tin­ues to re­spond well to treat­ment and is be­ing mon­i­tored closely by a team of doc­tors,” AIIMS said.

Vajpayee was ad­mit­ted to the All In­dia In­sti­tute of Med­i­cal Sciences (AIIMS) on Mon­day. His hos­pi­tal­i­sa­tion trig­gered VIP vis­its in­clud­ing that of Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Pres­i­dent Amit Shah and Congress Pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi on Mon­day.

The news of Vajpayee’s con­di­tion be­ing sta­ble did lit­tle to slow the flow of prom­i­nent lead­ers to the hos­pi­tal. For­mer Prime Min­is­ters Man­mo­han Singh and H D Deve Gowda, and Rashtriya Swayam­se­vak Sangh (RSS) chief Mo­han Bhag­wat vis­ited him on Tues­day. Among other lead­ers who made a visit to the hos­pi­tal are Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker M Tham­bidu­rai, vet­eran BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi, MDMK leader Vaiko and Union Min­is­ters Ash­wini Choubey, Vi­jay Goel and Sad­hvi Ni­ran­jan Jy­oti.

Vice-Pres­i­dent M Venka­iah Naidu en­quired about Vajpayee’s health. Health Min­is­ter J.P. Nadda, who vis­ited AIIMS on Mon­day, was again at the hos­pi­tal on Tues­day.
