Mulayam Singh, 82, was admitted to the hospital on October 2.
Yadav has been unwell for the last 3 years. According to Medanta Hospital, Yadav has serious lung and kidney issues. In addition to this, Yadav’s blood pressure has not been under control, forcing doctors to move him to the ICU. Yadav has reportedly been facing difficulties in breathing and also went through dialysis for his kidney problems which has resulted in some improvements to his health, but his condition remains critical.
