Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Kalyan Singh was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Sanjay Gandhi Post graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS), late on Sunday evening, after his condition took a turn for the worse.

"On his arrival here, his blood pressure and heartbeat were found normal, but the level of consciousness was a bit low. Keeping in mind his earlier ailments, he has been admitted to the ICU of the CCM," read a statement from the hospital.

The veteran BJP leader was shifted from the Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences (RMLIMS), where he was in ICU since Saturday.

According to an official statement, the 89-year-old politician has developed an inflammation in the parotid gland and was also diagnosed with irregularities in his kidney function.

A panel of ten doctors are treating the former chief minister.

"His blood pressure and pulse are stable, but he has altered sensorium which is being treated by doctors of cardiology, nephrology, endocrinology and neuro-autology, according to a SGPGI bulletin. Antibiotics administration has helped control his sepsis, but brain scans showed blood clots.

It should be noted that Singh has served both as chief minister of Uttar Pradesh and governor of Rajasthan.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, his deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya and UP BJP chief Swatantra Dev Singh had visited Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences on Sunday and enquired about the well-being of Kalyan Singh.
