"He is being treated by our team of experts and is making steady recovery," cited a statement issued by Indraprastha Apollo Hospital authorities.

They said no surgery or intervention is being planned for now and that Sidhu is medically stable. 51-year-old Sidhu was admitted to the hospital with acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a life threatening condition if not treated in time.

DVT is caused by a blood clot in a deep vein which hinders the normal blood flow. The symptoms may include swelling, pain, and tenderness, often in the legs. Sidhu has been a two-time former MP from Amritsar constituency in Punjab.
