Former Union minister Arun Shourie fainted and sustained a head injury in Pune. He has been admitted to a hospital here, the treating doctor said on Monday.
78-year-old Shourie fainted late on Sunday night and was rushed to the private hospital.
All important tests were performed and at present he is under 24-hour observation. He is conscious, the doctor said.
Shourie is a former Rajya Sabha member from the BJP and was Union minister for communications, information technology and disinvestment in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led government during 1999-2004.
A prolific writer, he has also served as an economist with the World Bank during 1967-1978. He was also the Editor of The Indian Express.
Of late, he has been critical of the Narendra Modi government, particularly after demonetization and implementation of GST.
