Former cabinet minister and former BJP leader Jaswant Singh continued to be on life support systems and under constant monitoring Saturday, a day after he was admitted to a hospital here in a highly critical condition.

"Former defence minister Jaswant Singh is still on life support systems and under constant monitoring by a team of neurosurgeons and critical care intensivists at Army Hospital (Research and Referral)," a defence ministry statement said Saturday.

The statement added "his vital parameters are stable but he continues to be in coma".
