President Pranab Mukherjee, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on February 1 condoled the demise of Senior Kerala MP, E. Ahamed, who died after he suffered a heart attack. E. Ahamed breathed his last early this morning at the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital in New Delhi.

Ahamed, a former Minister in the UPA government and a longtime IUML MP from Kerala, was admitted to RML after he fell unconscious in Parliament’s Central Hall during President Pranab Mukherjee’s address on Tuesday.

Several political leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress Vice -President Rahul Gandhi and President Pranab Mukherjee took to their Twitter handle to condole the demise of the leader.

The 78-year-old Ahamed has served as Minister of State for External Affairs in the UPA government and has been a Lok Sabha member from Malappuram in Kerala since 1991.

Ahamed was initially admitted to the emergency department of RML. However, as he showed no signs of revival, doctors attempted to revive him by putting him on the life support system after shifting him to the trauma centre of the hospital.

A team of three doctors, consisting head of cardiology Neeraj Pandit, head of anaesthesia Rajesh Sood and In-charge of Nursing facility R.S. Tonk, has been constituted to monitor Ahamed’s condition.

Meanwhile, there are reports that Union Budget 2017 would likely to get postponed for a day. However, the final decision will be taken after meeting the speaker at 10 AM.

The government will also speak to all the political parties before taking the final decision. The government also has the option to adjourn session after the budget speech.
