New Delhi: Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee has shown significant improvement and hopefully we will be able to discharge him in next few days, AIIMS doctors said on Wednesday.
“We are hopeful of Vajpayee’s full recovery in the next few days,” AIIMS director Randeep Guleria said.
The 93-year-old BJP veteran was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences on Monday with an urinary tract infection, lower respiratory tract infection and kidney issues, but his condition is reported to be stable since on Tuesday.
The former prime minister underwent dialysis on Monday and continued to remain in the intensive care unit of the cardiothoracic centre of the AIIMS, the source said.
Vajpayee, a diabetic, has one functional kidney. He suffered a stroke in 2009, weakening his cognitive abilities. Later, he developed dementia.
A host of political leaders, including former prime ministers Manmohan Singh and H D Deve Gowda, visited the ailing leader on Tuesday.
