Former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee continues to be in a critical condition. A statement released by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) says that his health has worsened in the last 24 hours and that he is on life support system. Vajpayee, 93, was admitted to AIIMS on June 11 with a kidney infection, chest congestion, urinary tract infection and low urine output.
As former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee continues to battle for life at AIIMS in New Delhi, people of all faiths in his “karam bhoomi” Lucknow held special prayers for his long life. Shortly after the news spread that the veteran leader’s health has deteriorated, people began flocking to temples to offer prayers and hold ‘havans’ for his longevity.
“He is our idol. With just his presence we got inspiration and encouragement, we pray for his health, no one can ever be like Atal Ji, campaigning for him was an honour for me,” said Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
India is praying for Former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s health to get better but there are some users of the social media who are spewing hate against the former Prime Minister by their tweets.
A man who snitched on freedom-fighters and turned approver leading to their jail sentence. Then came to power after death of thousands of innocent people #AtalBihariVaajpayee
