The condition of former Union minister Jaswant Singh, 76, who was admitted to Army Research & Referral Hospital on Tuesday, is stable.

Singh, who is in partial coma since August last year, after having suffered severe head injury, was admitted into the intensive care unit (ICU) of the Army Hospital.

According to the hospital sources, he is stable. "His condition is essentially the same but the vital parametres keep fluctuating in this condition. He had developed breathing difficulty, so he was brought to the hospital. He is fine now and is under observation. He was put on ventilator initially to provide breathing assistance," said the source, requesting anonymity.

Singh was admitted to the hospital on August 8 last year in a critical condition after his family found him lying on the floor of his house in an unconscious state. He was discharged from the hospital in a semi-coma state three months ago, after being admitted in the hospital for four months.
