New Delhi, Feb 1: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who underwent a coronary by-pass surgery in AIIMS, was discharged  on Sunday morning, Feb 1.

He came out of the hospital at around 7.45 hrs IST."He was very cheerful and walking. He is updated on the activities and is already seeing his files," sources from PMO said.

The 76-year-old Singh is also diabetic. He has been advised to slowly step up his levels of physical activity. He will be able to resume work in about four weeks after his recovery. Travel is not going to be an issue, said a Doctor.

The Prime Minister underwent a complex coronary 're-do' bypass surgery at AIIMS on January 24 and was moved out of the ICU on Jan 28. The complex surgery was conducted by a team of 11 doctors from the Asian Heart Institute (AHI) and AIIMS led by Dr Ramakant Panda.

PM was kept in ICU after his surgery. Later he was shifted to a special room on Jan 28. He was also given physiotherapy sessions after he was moved out of the ICU. But keeping his diabetes in mind, the Prime Minister will have to be careful about his diet and exercise and has been asked to avoid stress.
