Shiromani Akali Dal patriarch Parkash Singh Badal was on Monday evening admitted to the PGIMER in Chandigarh after he complained of gastric-related problems, hospital sources said.
The 94-year-old former Punjab chief minister has been admitted to the Advanced Cardiac Centre of the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research and was undergoing a medical examination, they said.
He complained of some gastric-related problems and had one episode of vomiting, but his condition is stable, the sources said, adding that the SAD leader is being looked after by a team of doctors.
Earlier this year, Badal had contracted COVID-19.
In February, he was taken to a private hospital in Mohali for a post-Covid health check-up.
He had undergone a cardiac and pulmonary check-up too.
Prior to this, Badal was on January 24 discharged from a hospital in Ludhiana where he was admitted after he tested positive for COVID-19.
The SAD patriarch had earlier been advised by doctors to opt for bi-weekly or tri-weekly precautionary check-ups, especially after being tested for COVID-19.
