New Delhi, Feb 5 (ANI): Doctors attending to former prime minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Atal Behari Vajpayee said he is showing signs of improvement.

Vajpayee was not a diabetic and was not suffering from hypertension, he said.
“His blood tests besides lever and kidney function tests are normal,” Sharma added.
