New Delhi, Oct 31 (UNI) Information and Broadcasting Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi today continued to remain on a life support system, 11 days after he was shifted from the All India Institute for Medical Sciences to the Apollo hospital, hospital sources said.
''The medical condition of Mr Dasmunsi remains the same and he continues to be on life support,'' said a spokesperson for the Apollo hospital, where Mr Dasmunsi was shifted on October 20 from AIIMS.
Since last Monday, when doctors at the Apollo hospital described Mr Dasmunsi as "critical", the condition of the Union Minister has remained the same.
