Atal Bihari Death

Vajpayee's condition continues to remain the same. He was in  critical and on life support systems, AIIMS said in a press release on Thursday.

The AIIMS authorities broke the news of his death on Thursday afternoon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the hospital.
Vajpayee, a diabetes patient, was admitted to AIIMS on June 11 for what doctors had described as a routine check-up. He was being treated for a kidney tract infection, urinary tract infection, low urine output and chest congestion.
His condition had worsened on Wednesday. “Unfortunately, Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s condition has worsened over the last 24 hours. His condition is critical and he is on life support system,” AIIMS said in the last statement issued late on Wednesday.
Vajpayee had only one functional kidney. In 2009, he had suffered a stroke, which weakened his cognitive abilities. Subsequently, he developed dementia.
The BJP stalwart was under the supervision of Dr Randeep Guleria, a pulmonologist and currently the Director of AIIMS. Guleria had served as personal physician to Vajpayee for over three decades.
The hospital was flooded with politicians cutting across party lines. Among those who visited the BJP stalwart at the hospital on Thursday were Vice President Venkaiah Naidu, BJP chief Amit Shah, Home Minister Raj Nath Singh, senior BJP leader LK Advani, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Union Ministers Ram Vilas Paswan and Uma Bharti, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and NC president Farooq Abdullah.
On Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) to enquire about Vajpayee’s health and reportedly spent 15 minutes with Vajpayee.
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and BJP National President Amit Shah had visited Vajpayee on Saturday.
Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal, Union Textiles Minister Smriti Irani and BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi also paid a visit to the hospital on Wednesday.
