BJP leader and former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu, who is undergoing treatment for acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT), is making steady recovery, doctors at a New Delhi hospital said on Thursday.

“He is being treated by our team of experts and is making steady recovery,” Indraprastha Apollo Hospital authorities reported in a statement.

They said no surgery or intervention was being planned for now and that Sidhu was medically stable.
