New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today paid a visit to ailing former BJP leader Jaswant Singh who continues to be on life support systems after he was operated upon for a head injury at the Army Research and Referral Hospital here.

“The Prime Minister spoke to Jaswant Singh‘s family members at the hospital and hoped for his speedy recovery,” said a PMO statement.

The 76-year-old former Defence Minister was admitted to the hospital at around 11 PM on Thursday after he fell down at his residence here.

Singh, who had also served as External Affairs and Defence and Finance Minister in Vajpayee government, was expelled from the BJP early this year after he decided to contest the Lok Sabha polls from Barmer in Rajasthan as an Independent after being denied a ticket.
