New Delhi: Four months since the former Union minister Jaswant Singh was hospitalised with a severe head injury, the former BJP leader continues to be in coma and showing no sign of improvement in health, doctors said.

“His (Jaswant Singh) condition is still the same. He continues to be in coma. All the treatment process remains the same with a team of doctors observing him closely every day,” a senior doctor at the Army Hospital (Research and Referral) told IANS here.

“The team of doctors consists of neurosurgeons and critical care specialists. Every efforts is being made to revive Jaswant Singh,” he added.

According to the doctor, Jaswant Singh is being given total parenteral nutrition (TPN) which delivers nutrients intravenously when a patient is unable to eat on his/her own.

The 76-year-old leader was admitted to the hospital on August 8 in a critical condition after his family found him lying on the floor of his house in an unconscious state.
