Union Home Minister Amit Shah was admitted to Delhi AIIMS on Saturday for a “complete medical checkup” ahead of the Monsoon Session of Parliament from Monday, reported Indian Express. He will remain in the hospital for 1-2 days, a statement issued by the medical institute said on Sunday.
This comes nearly two weeks after the 55-year-old BJP leader was discharged from the top medical institute for post-COVID19 care. This is his second visit to the hospital in over a month.
“As per advise given at discharge, he has now been admitted for a complete medical checkup before Parliament session for 1-2 days,” a statement released by Dr Aarti Vij, chairperson, media and protocol division of AIIMS, read.
Earlier in the day, senior doctors said that Mr. Shah arrived for a check-up after he faced difficulty in breathing. A team led by the institute’s director, Dr Randeep Guleria, is closely monitoring his condition.
Last month, the minister was hospitalised due to “fatigue and body aches” after testing negative for coronavirus, the newspaper reported. The BJP leader was infected on 2 August after which he was admitted to Medanta Hospital in Gurugram for treatment.
