The health condition of former Prime Minister Inder Kumar Gujral continues to be stable but critical, says media advisor.
Gujral, 92, was admitted to the hospital on November 19 and is on ventilator support. He has been on dialysis for over a year now and had suffered a serious chest infection some days ago.
"Right now he is stable, he is on ventilator. The trouble started with the infection in lungs, he was admitted in the same hospital before. After that, we took him home, but some days later the infection was not completely removed, so he was admitted again. The lung infection has spread throughout the body and the doctors are saying that he is critical. The position is still critical," said Mehta.
Born on December 4, 1919, Gujral was the 12th Prime Minister of India from April 1997 to March 1998.
He has been the second Prime Minister from the Rajya Sabha to govern India. The first was his immediate predecessor H.D. Deve Gowda.
