By Super Admin

New Delhi, Mar 1 (ANI): Former Prime Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Atal Behari Vajpayee was on Sunday discharged from All Indian Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) after his 26 days of stay at the Intensive Care Unit here.

Senior BJP leader Vijay Goel and Vajpayee's adopted daughter Namita Bhattacharjee were present at AIIMS at the time of the discharge.

"It is a blessing for the BJP that he has recovered and returned home. He is alright and will be taken care of by doctors at home," he said.

The 84-year-old leader was admitted at AIIMS on February 3 with complaints of fever and chest congestion where doctors found him suffering from respiratory tract infection. Since then, Vajpayee was recuperating at the premier hospital in the national capital.

Doctors later conducted tracheotomy on February 13 to ease his respiration process. He has since shown steady improvement in his condition. (ANI)
