The condition of former Uttarakhand Chief Minister ND Tiwari, undergoing treatment at a hospital in New Delhi for over nine months, has worsened steadily over the past few weeks prompting doctors to conduct several tests on him on Tuesday, a release by the politician's camp officials said.
Tiwari, a former chief minister of undivided Uttar Pradesh for four terms who is also the first elected chief minister of Uttarakhand, was admitted at the Max Super Speciality Hospital in Saket in the national capital on September 20 last year following a brain stroke. Doctors at the hospital did a chest X-Ray and other tests to get at the root of the steady and substantial decline in the leader's condition over the past two-three weeks, the release by Tiwari's camp office in Delhi said.
The doctors spoke to the former chief minister's son Rohit Shekhar Tiwari on the phone to brief about his father's condition, it said.
While reports of the tests are awaited doctors are seriously considering the option of conducting an MRI on the nonagenarian, it added.
