According to the sources, Singh is stable and under observation at the Cardio-Thoracic Sciences Centre of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

The sources close to him said the senior Congress leader was "better" on Monday and did not have any fever during the day.

He, however, underwent a series of tests and some of the test results are awaited, they said. Singh may be discharged in a day or so, the sources added.
