NEW DELHI: Former President Pranab Mukherjee is slowly responding to medical treatment and all his vital parameters are stable, his son and former MP Abhijit Mukherjee said on Thursday.
The former President was admitted to the Army’s Research and Referral Hospital here on August 10. He also tested positive for Covid-19.
Pranab Mukherjee’s son later tweeted, “My father is and has always been a fighter! He is slowly responding to medical interventions and all his vital parameters are stable. I urge upon every well wisher to pray for my father’s speedy recovery! We need them.”
With rumours doing the rounds, Abhijit Mukherjee said, “My father Shri Pranab Mukherjee is still alive and haemodynamically stable.”
“Speculations and fake news being circulated by reputed journalists on social media clearly reflects that media in India has become a factory of fake news,” he posted on Twitter.
