Former Indian President Pranab Mukherjee’s medical condition has remained unchanged and he continues to be on ventilator support, said Indian Army’s Research and Referral Hospital on Sunday morning.
“The condition of former president Pranab Mukherjee remains unchanged this Sunday morning. He is deeply comatose and is being treated for respiratory infection. His vital parameters are stable and he continues to be on ventilator support”, the hospital said in a statement.
Mukherjee, 84, underwent a critical brain surgery at the hospital to remove a clot after he suffered a fall at his Rajaji Marg residence on August 10. He is on ventilator support since then.
On August 21, Sharmistha Mukherjee, the former President’s daughter, tweeted her gratitude for everyone’s good wished and prayers for her father’s quick recovery. Singer Lata Mangeshkar’s call inquiring about her father’s health was ‘heartwarming’, she said in her tweet.
Mukherjee was the 13th President of India from 2012 to 2017.
