Lalaji Tandon remains in the hospital

He is improving, the Raj Bhavan has informed by quoting a bulletin issued by doctors treating him in Lucknow. It also said that his diabetes is under control. His kidney, liver and heart are better than before, it added.

Though his medical condition has shown signs of improvements, he is far from being in a condition to assume duty anytime soon.

Patel has been given the additional duty of Madhya Pradesh, keeping in mind the current medical condition of Tandon.
