Former PM Manmohan Singh admitted to AIIMS Delhi, Congress says ‘undergoing routine treatment’

Initially, sources reported to CNN News 18 that Singh has been admitted to the cardiology department of AIIMS. The former PM has a past of heart-related ailments and underwent a coronary bypass operation at the hospital in 2009.

On October 13, Ex-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has been admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi. Congress released a statement noting that Singh was “undergoing routine treatment” at the hospital.

“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,” All India Congress Committee (AICC) Secretary Pranav Jha tweeted.

Initially, sources reported to CNN News 18 that Singh has been admitted to the cardiology department of AIIMS. The former PM has a past of heart-related ailments and underwent a coronary bypass operation at the hospital in 2009.

Since 1990, when he underwent a bypass operation, Singh had five bypasses operated on him and a stenting procedure in 2004. Last May, he was admitted to AIIMS after reports of chest pain.

Singh, 89, was also hospitalised earlier this year after testing positive for COVID-19 on April 19. However, the former PM had successfully improved from the virus and was discharged from the hospital on April 29. Currently, a Rajya Sabha MP representing the state of Rajasthan, Singh had worked as the country’s prime minister between 2004 and 2014.
