New Delhi, Feb 10: Information and Broadcasting minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi's brain has become dysfunctional. Minister is ailing since his second cardiac arrest in October, 2008.
"He was taken off the life support system in January and shifted to a private room from Intensive Care Unit. Though his respiratory problem has improved, his neurological condition remains the same and he cannot recognise people," said a doctor at the Indraprastha Apollo hospital here.
"He is not brain dead but his brain has become dysfunctional following some blockages. This was after the severe cardiac arrest in October last year," the doctor, who spoke strictly on condition of anonymity said to a news agency.
Dasmunshi, 63, who is critical was shifted to Apollo Hospital on October 20 from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences. Doctors are monitoring his condition.
On the recommendation from Congress, American neurologist Den Henley came to India to monitor Dasmunshi. He reportedly prescribed a line of treatment if his condition improved.
