Caretaker Minister for Information and Law Barrister Ali Zafar is likely to attend former Indian prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s funeral in New Dehli, media reports said on Thursday.
Former India prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee on Thursday passed away in New Delhi at the age of 93.
Earlier it was reported that the former Indian PM had been admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in critical condition. Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders visited AIIMS him in the morning after the news broke out.
According to a health update released by the hospital, the former premier had been placed on life support.
Doctors treating the veteran BJP leader remained tight-lipped about his condition. Hospital sources, however, said his condition has worsened over the last 24 hours.
