 Vajpayee Likely to be Discharged Today
Former Prime Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Atal Behari Vajpayee is likely to be discharged on Sunday from the All Indian Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

According to the team of doctors attending upon him at the AIIMS, Vajpayee is fit enough to be discharged from the hospital.

"He is alright now. Doctors have decided to discharge him tomorrow," Cardio Thoracic and Vascular Sciences Chief Dr. Sampath Kumar said.

The 84-year-old leader was admitted at AIIMS on February 3 with complaints of fever and chest congestion where doctors found him suffering from respiratory tract infection. Since then, Vajpayee was recuperating at the premier hospital in the national capital.

Doctors later conducted tracheotomy on February 13 to ease his respiration process. He has since shown steady improvement in his condition.
