Former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh was hospitalised this evening after he complained of fever and weakness.
He has been admitted to the All India Institute Of Medical Sciences in the national capital.
Earlier this year, the 88-year-old Congress veteran and Rajya Sabha member had been admitted to hospital after he tested positive for Covid-19 during the second wave of infections.
Pranav Jha, AICC secretary in-charge of communications, said Dr Singh is “undergoing routine treatment” and his condition is stable. He also dismissed “unsubstantiated rumours” regarding his health.
There are some unsubstantiated rumours with regards to former PM, Dr Manmohan Singh ji’s health. His condition is stable.
He is undergoing routine treatment. We will share any updates as needed. We thank our friends in media for their concern.
