It was a pleasant day until I heard the news that our former Prime minister Atal Bihari Vaajpai is no more. Yes, it is shocking and a sad news for all of us. He was admitted to AIIMS on 9th of June as he was suffering from chest congestion, kidney infection and urinary tract infection.
He was unwell since very long but suddenly yesterday, the doctors had to put him on life support as his situation got really critical. It was pretty obvious that he will take time to recover but we all went to the shock when we heard the news of his demise. However, the doctors tried their best to save him but could not. Many politicians and leaders of BJP visited to meet him yesterday including our current Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
There was a press release issued by AIIMS-
It is with profound grief that we inform about the sad demise of Former Prime Minister of India, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee at 0S:05pm on 16.08.2018. Shri Vajpayee was admitted in AIIMS on 11.06.2018 and was stable in the last 9 weeks under the care of a team of AIIMS doctors.
Unfortunately, his condition deteriorated over the last 36 hours and he was put on life support systems. Despite the best of efforts, we have lost him today.
We join the Nation in deeply mourning this great loss.
