No improvement in Pranab’s condition

Thursday, 13 August 2020 | PNS | New Delhi

The condition of former President Pranab Mukherjee continues to be critical and he remains on ventilator support, the Army’s Research and Referral hospital said on Wednesday. He was admitted to the hospital in Delhi cantonment on August 10 and was operated for removal of a clot in the brain.

The 84-year-old had also tested positive for Covid-19 prior to the surgery on Monday.

 “Shri Pranab Mukherjee’s health condition continues to remain critical. Presently he is haemodynamically stable and on a ventilator,” a statement from the hospital said.

The condition of the former President had worsened on Tuesday and he had not shown signs of improvement, the doctors attending on him said.

Pranab Mukherjee’s daughter and Congress leader Sharmistha Mukherjee has said, “ May God do whatever is best for him”, while recalling that last year during the same time he received the Bharat Ratna award.

Last year August 8 was one of the happiest days for me as my dad received Bharat Ratna. Exactly a year later, on August 10, he fell critically ill. May God do whatever is best for him and give me the strength to accept both joys and sorrows of life with equanimity. I sincerely thank all for their concerns,” Ms Mukherjee wrote on Twitter this morning.
