Prime Minister Narendra Modi wished former PM Manmohan Singh a ‘speedy recovery’. PM Modi tweeted: ‘I pray for the good health and speedy recovery of Dr. Manmohan Singh Ji’. Dr Manmohan Singh was hospitalised yesterday at Delhi’s AIIMS for fever and weakness. Later on Wednesday, doctors at AIIMS said that the former PM’s condition was stable. The former prime minister is under the care of a team of cardiologists led by Dr Nitish Naik.
“The 89-year-old Congress leader was admitted to AIIMS, Delhi for evaluation of fever; his condition is stable,” an AIIMS official said. Union Health minister Mansukh Mandaviya visited the former PM at AIIMS this morning.
Early this year, Singh was admitted to AIIMS-Delhi after he tested positive for coronavirus. Last year as well, the former PM received treatment at AIIMS after complaining of uneasiness. Singh has already undergone several cardiac bypass surgeries in past. The latest surgery was conducted on him in January 2009.
Singh, India’s 14th prime minister, is an Oxford- and Cambridge-educated economist credited with shaping India’s economic and social welfare reforms.
