Doctors making all efforts to revive Ajit Jogi’s brain

Doctors are making every possible effort to revive the brain of Chhattisgarh’s first Chief Minister Ajit Jogi who is undergoing treatment in a private hospital for the last eight days, with his condition still said to be extremely critical.

“He is still in coma and on ventilator support. The doctors are regularly observing his brain and efforts are on to revive it through TCD, VNS as well as infrared radiation,” said a medical bulletin released by Hospital Director Dr Sunil Khemka.

The hospital doctors are also consulting experts within the country and abroad, the bulletin said.

On Saturday, consultations took place with Dr Sanjeeb Sinha of the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS) and it was unanimously decided that the current treatment should be continued, the bulletin said.

Then in the Congress, Jogi headed the first government in Chhattisgarh after it was carved out of Madhya Pradesh. He later quit the party and formed a regional outfit.
