Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Nd Tiwari remained silent on Saturday while receiving physiotherapy at a private hospital in the capital and was transferred to the intensive care unit, his aide said.

The 92-year-old politician was admitted to the hospital on September 20 after suffering a stroke.

“At 4 pm, Tiwariji became insensitive to physiotherapy, and his son Rohit Shekhar Tiwari, who was present, immediately alerted a team of doctors,” said the assistant. Tiwari was then transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). He said various tests had been done and reports would be available by tomorrow.

Tiwari was admitted to the intensive care unit at Max Super Specialty Hospital in September. Later, he was moved as a result of improving his condition.

Earlier this month, he was again transferred to the intensive care unit after a fall in blood pressure and was placed under surveillance, but was transferred to another room on November 15, the deputy said
