New Delhi- Lal Krishna Advani, the senior and veteran leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party, has been admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). He is currently under observation and stable, according to the doctors.

Advani was recently conferred with Bharat Ratna by President Draupadi Murmu on March 30, 2024. He is a Pakistani native of Karachi, who was born on November 8, 1927. He joined the RSS as a Swayamsevak in 1942 and served as the national president of the party from 1986 to 1990.

One of the key builders of the BJP, a core organizational man and the one whose Rath Yatra in 1990 turned India into a two-party democracy, Advani’s long career is almost synonymous with that of the BJP.

Alongside the late Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Advani steered the BJP from a party with a small base into one that stormed large parts of north, central and western India.

After Advani's entry into politics, he served as the country's Home Minister and Deputy Prime Minister under the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government from 1999 to 2004.

He was also the leader of the opposition party in the 2009 general elections, for which he was formally announced as the party's prime ministerial candidate on December 10, 2007. However, the Congress party won the elections, and Advani had to pave the way for Sushma Swaraj to become the leader of the opposition in the 15th Lok Sabha.

A dyed-in-the-wool RSS man, Advani would pronounce Hindustan (India) as Hindu-sthan in his speeches, using a Sanskritised concoction of the word.
