VHP leader Ashok Singhal has been admitted to the Medanta Hospital in Gurgaon after his health deteriorated.
Hospital sources said Singhal’s condition was critical and he was on ventilator support in the ICU.
Singhal has been suffering from respiratory problems for over a month now. He was earlier admitted to Medanta on October 20 after his condition deteriorated in Allahabad and was flown in to the national capital in an air ambulance. He was discharged only two days ago.
BJP president Amit Shah and party’s general secretary (organisation) Ramlal, besides Union Health Minister J P Nadda visited him Saturday at the hospital and inquired about his health. VHP international vice president Om Parkash Singhal, general secretary Champat Rai and other leaders also visited Medanta.
Keeping in view Singhal’s bad health, VHP has cancelled its 18-day Chaturved Swahakar Yajna that was slated to start at Delhi’s Birla Mandir from November 16, as well as its Diwali Milan programme.
