Former President Pranab Mukherjee’s condition continues to be critical, according to the health bulletin released on Wednesday.
“Presently he is haemodynamically stable and on a ventilator,” the hospital said in the medical bulletin on Wednesday.
He has been admitted to the Army’s Research and Referral Hospital in New Delhi.
