The health condition of veteran Congress leader and former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi deteriorated on Monday morning and he is still in a critical condition, doctors said.

The former CM is undergoing treatment at the Gauhati Medical College Hospital (GMCH) for post-Covid complications.

GMCH Superintendent Abhijit Sharma said that a team of nine doctors was closely monitoring his health, while adding that the team is using possible maximum life support and the doctors are monitoring if the Congress leader's body responds to it or not.

Meanwhile, Assam Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma visited the GMCH hospital to inquire about the health of the former CM.

Sarma told the media that the senior Congress leader is "very, very critical"  and is on complete life support.

Gogoi, 84, was admitted to the hospital on November 2 after he complained of breathlessness.

He had tested COVID-19 positive on August 26, and had been discharged from the hospital on October 25.
