New Delhi: BJP workers in Kanpur on Tuesday performed a havan or a religious ritual in which offerings are made to the fire, along with prayers or mantra chanting, for the well-being of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who was admitted to AIIMS hospital in Delhi the previous afternoon.

The former PM is in ICU and underwent dialysis following complaints of lower respiratory tract infection and kidney issues.

The hospital authorities had earlier issued a statement saying the veteran politician was stable and is undergoing medical tests.

The 93-year-old leader is under the supervision of AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria, said a statement from the hospital.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi and other senior politicians visited the BJP veteran, who was admitted in the hospital around 11.30 am on Monday.
