Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Kalyan Singh was admitted to the intensive care unit of the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences here on Sunday evening, according to an official statement.
The statement from the institute said that a panel of experts, from the nephrology, cardiology, neurology, endocrinology and neuro-otology departments, has been formed to attend to Singh. The former Rajasthan governor was admitted to the intensive care unit of Critical Care Medicine of the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences on Sunday around 5.30 pm. He was feeling unwell for the past two weeks, it said.
“On his arrival here, his blood pressure and heartbeats were found normal, but the level of consciousness was a bit low. Keeping in mind his earlier ailments, he has been admitted to the ICU of the CCM," the statement said. Prior to this, the 89-year-old veteran leader of the BJP was admitted to the Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi called Singh’s son Rajveer and inquired about his health. He also called up Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to ensure that best possible medical care is made available to Singh.
Earlier in the day, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Adityanath, his deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya and UP BJP chief Swatantra Dev Singh visited Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences and enquired about the well being of Kalyan Singh.
His blood pressure and pulse are stable, but he has altered sensorium which is being treated by doctors of cardiology, nephrology, endocrinology and neuro-autology, according to a SGPGI bulletin. An RMLIMS statement released on Sunday evening said Singh was admitted to the facility on June 21 with acute blood bacterial peritonitis and sepsis. Antibiotics administration helped control his sepsis, but brain scans showed blood clots.
Earlier, CM Yogi Adityanath tweeted — “I pray to Lord Ram that he returns to good health soon.”
