Union home minister Amit Shah has been re-admitted to Delhi’s All India Institute for Medical Sciences (AIIMS), nearly two weeks after his discharge.

According to media reports, Shah was admitted to the hospital again after he complained of breathing problems on Saturday.

In a statement, the hospital authority said home minister Shah has been readmitted to AIIMS for a complete medical check-up ahead of the Parliament’s Monsoon Session beginning from Monday.

“As per the advice given at the time of his discharge, he has now been admitted for a complete medical check-up,” the All India Institute for Medical Sciences, New Delhi said.

The reports quoted sources as saying that Shah was admitted at around 11 on Saturday night.

Sources said, he is being kept in CN tower, a facility reserved for VVIPs.

The Union home minister is getting treatment under Dr Randeep Guleria, director of AIIMS, sources said.

Shah’s condition is said to be stable now.

The home minister has been suffering from post-COVID ailments for a month now.

Earlier, Shah was admitted to AIIMS on August 18 after he suffered post-COVID ailments days after his recovery from COVID19.
