New Delhi: BJP stalwart and former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee is seriously ill, sources say. Vajpayee was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in June for a routine check-up and was diagnosed with urinary tract infection. Home Minister Rajnath Singh reached AIIMS on Saturday to meet former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee to enquire about his health condition.

The Union Minister had earlier visited Vajpayee at the hospital on July 24. He had reportedly reached the hospital around 7.30 PM and left around 8.30 PM.

Atal Bihari Vajpayee was admitted to AIIMS earlier in June following kidney tract infection, chest congestion and urinary tract infection. However, he was hospitalised on the advice of doctors. At AIIMS, he is under the supervision of Dr Randeep Guleria, who has served as personal physician to him since over three decades.
