Social media users via microblogging site Twitter shared their concerns regarding the veteran economist’s deteriorating health along with prayers for his recovery.

Previously, Singh was rushed to AIIMS hospital in Delhi last year, owing to constant fever and physical weakness. Singh was admitted to the hospital for 18 days in October 2021.

Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandavya has also went to the hospital to meet Singh and check on his health condition. The latter has been undergoing treatment from cardiologist Nitish Naik.

Manmohan Singh could not even attend the winter session in the previous year due to his ailing health.

The former Prime Minister was also admitted to the trauma unit after getting covid positive in April last year. Singh, who is currently a Rajya Sabha MP from Congress, underwent a bypass surgery in 2009.
