Reacting to Former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh's admission to Delhi's All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) after he came down with a fever, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in a tweet on Thursday, 14 October, “I pray for the good health and speedy recovery of Dr. Manmohan Singh Ji.”

Meanwhile, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi visited the former prime minister at AIIMS. According to ANI, Gandhi also met with Dr Singh's wife, Gursharan Kaur, during his visit.

Earlier on Thursday, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya visited AIIMS to meet Manmohan Singh.

After meeting Dr Singh, Mandaviya said in a tweet in Hindi, "Today, I met former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh Ji at AIIMS, New Delhi and inquired about his health. I wish him a speedy recovery."



According to ANI, AIIMS officials had confirmed late on Wednesday that Dr Singh was admitted with fever and that his condition is stable.

He had developed a fever two days ago and was feeling weak before being rushed to AIIMS. A source at AIIMS told IANS that he was also complaining of neck pain.

Earlier this year, Dr Singh had been admitted to the hospital after he tested positive for COVID-19 during the second wave of infections.
