Senior politician ND Tiwari is critical after suffering from brain stroke on Wednesday. He has been admitted to Max Hospital in Saket in New Delhi, his niece Manishi Tiwari was quoted by ANI.

Sources at Max Hospital in Saket said the condition of 91-year-old Tiwari is serious and he is under observation in the Intensive Care Unit. A team of doctors is attending to him, they said. Tiwari’s son Rohit said he fell unconscious this morning while having tea at his house, PTI reports.

Nayaran Dutt Tiwari is the only Indian politician to have served as chief minister of two states. While he was thrice at the helm of power in Uttar Pradesh, he also became the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand once in 2002. Tiwari also served as Minister of External Affairs in Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s cabinet. Tiwari was also the Governor of Andhra Pradesh from 2007 to 2009. He was, however, forced to resign over a sex scandal. While earlier he was a part of Congress, he along with his son, Rohit Shekhar Tiwari, joined BJP earlier this year in the presence of BJP president Amit Shah.

Incidentally, Rohit had filed a paternity suit in 2008 claiming Tiwari to be his bilogical father. The DNA results ordered by the court established in 2012 that Tiwari was indeed the biological father of Rohit and his longtime partner Ujjwala Tiwari is the biological mother. N D Tiwari married Ujjwala in 2014.

Tiwari first came to the limelight when Indira Gandhi chose him to replace Veer Bahadur Singh as the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister in 1976. While earlier he was one of the most acceptable faces of the Congress, he ultimately switched to the saffron party during the Uttarakhand elections in January this year.

          Amit Shah must be able to answer. Because he is the one to supply women after he joined BJP. Before that M K Narayanan was the supplier.

            N.DO.Tiwari is the last old guards of congress left,who was once considered to be next PM candidate but lost in the internal politics of congress due to his self made mistakes.However his is a charismatic personality of 95 years entangling himself in unnecessary contraversies not expected of his re tion calibre.Many other present congress bigwigs too appear to be emulating him,as already congress is on wane.Congress has to find a charismatic leader of high caliber to counter the towering Modi in the next election
