Former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Admitted To AIIMS In Delhi

 

 

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was admitted to Delhi's AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Sciences) on Sunday night over chest problems. The veteran Congress leader was taken to the cardio-thoracic ward of the hospital at 8.45 pm and is under observation by doctors.

The 87-year-old two-time Prime Minister is not in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit). According to news agency PTI, he is being treated by Dr Nitish Naik, a professor of cardiology.

The former Prime Minister suffered a fall shortly before parliament was adjourned in March amid the coronavirus outbreak. At the time his doctors had advised complete bedrest.

Manmohan Singh, who currently represents Rajasthan in the Rajya Sabha, has undergone two heart-bypass surgeries - one in 1990 and another in 2009. He also has a history of diabetes.
