Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, 87, has been admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi on May 10 evening.

He was admitted around 8:45 pm after he complained of chest congestion. He is under the observation of Dr Nitish Naik, a professor of cardiology at the hospital.

According to the sources closed to the former Prime Minister, the doctors are examining his condition. “He is under observation, and the examination is going on,” said a senior doctor from the hospital.

The former Prime Minister has previously undergone two heart-bypass surgeries – one in 1990 and another in 2009. He also has a history of diabetes.

Earlier this week Mr Singh participated in a video conference alongside Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and chief ministers of party-ruled states and questioned the centre over its decision-making during the coronavirus lockdown.
