Former BJP leader Jaswant Singh on life support

August 09, 2014 14:25 IST

Former Bharatiya Janata Party leader Jaswant Singh continues to be on life support systems after he was operated upon for a head injury at the Army Research and Referral Hospital in New Delhi after he had a fall at his residence.

He is under constant monitoring by a team of neurosurgeons and critical care experts at the hospital, an update on his condition issued by the defence ministry said.

 It said the former Union minister's vital parameters are stable but he continues to be in coma.

The 76-year-old former defence minister was admitted to the hospital around 11 pm on Thursday after he fell down.

Singh, who had also served as external affairs, defence and finance minister, was expelled from the BJP early this year after he decided to contest the Lok Sabha polls from Barmer in Rajasthan as an Independent after being denied a ticket. He lost the elections.
