Former prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee was discharged from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on Sunday evening after a prolonged stay. He had been in the ICU of the hospital since February 3.

“The team of doctors treating former PM was fully satisfied with his recovery and allowed him to go home,” said Dr D.K. Sharma, medical superintendent of AIIMS. He has been prescribed some antibiotics and will undergo regular check ups.

Last Tuesday, doctors had made Vajpayee drink water to check whether he was able to swallow properly or not. “He had had his first sip in three weeks and we were satisfied with the result. He was doing fine and was fit enough to be discharged,” said Dr Sampath Kumar, chief of cardio thoracic vascular sciences department at the hospital. Kumar was one of the members of the team treating Vajpayee.
