The health condition of former Assam Chief Minister and veteran Congress leader Tarun Gogoi is extremely critical and he is now on complete life support at the Guwahati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH).
Assam Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma who visited the government-run hospital on Monday morning said today his health condition has turned extremely critical and the doctors are doing their level best to recover him.
“The doctors are getting some signs only from his brain. The doctors also noticed a little eye movement. But, all other organs have stopped functioning. Now at this moment, I don’t think that the doctors have other options. All things are now with God. We are praying for his early recovery and hopefully, God will hear our prayer,” Himanta Biswa Sarma said.
Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has cancelled his all government programmes and left for Guwahati from Dibrugarh, in view of Tarun Gogoi’s deteriorating condition.
The 86-year-old veteran politician was admitted at GMCH on November 2 due to post-Covid-19 complications.
Gogoi, who was Chief Minister of Assam for three consecutive years from 2001 till 2016, was admitted to Guwahati Medical College Hospital on August 26 after he tested positive for Covid-19 and he was discharged from the hospital on October 25.
Many fans of the former Assam Chief Minister are gathered outside of the hospital and prayed for his early recovery.
Tarun Gogoi’s wife Dolly Gogoi, his daughter Chandrima and son Gaurav, who is also a Congress MP are present at the hospital.
