Atal Bihari Vajpayee passes away at 93

Former prime minister and BJP stalwart Atal Bihari Vajpayee passed away today, at the age of 92. He was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in June, and had been ailing for quite some time. The leader had minimised political activities in the last decade, following the deterioration of his health. AIIMS released a press release saying, “It is with profound grief that we inform about the sad demise of former prime minister of India, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee at 5.05 pm on 16.08.2018. Shri Vajpayee was admitted in AIIMS on 11.06.2018 and was stable in the last 9 weeks under the care of a tam of AIIMS doctors. Unfortunately, his condition deteriorated over the last 36 hours and he was put on life support systems. Despite the best of efforts, we have lost him today. We join the Nation in deeply mourning this great loss.”
