New Delhi, Feb 11 (ANI): The condition of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who is undergoing treatment at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), is improving, doctors said.

Considering the pace of Vajpayee’’s recovery, it is expected that he will be taken off ventilator support within a day or two.
