Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's condition is critical and he is on life support system, the AIIMS said on Wednesday.

"Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee has been admitted for the last 9 weeks at AIIMS. Unfortunately, his condition has worsened over the last 24 hours," the hospital said, adding that his condition is critical and he is on life support system.

Vajpayee was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on June 11 with kidney tract infection, chest congestion, urinary tract infection and low urine output.

Earlier on Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited AIIMS to enquire about the health condition of Vajpayee, who has been undergoing treatment at the premier institute.

Modi reached the hospital at around 7.15 pm and spent about 50 minutes there.

After Modi, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal and BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi also paid a visit.

Earlier in the evening, Union Textiles Minister Smriti Irani had visited the hospital to check on Vajpayee.

The 93-year-old BJP leader, a diabetic, has one functional kidney. He had suffered a stroke in 2009 that weakened his cognitive abilities. Subsequently, he developed dementia.
