Former MIC deputy president Datuk S Subramaniam is reported to be in stable condition after undergoing five hours of brain surgery which lasted until 2am today.
R Balakrishnan, his former secretary and close friend, said the doctors managed to stop the bleeding in his brain and draw out blood from his thrombus.
"Overall, his blood pressure, heart and pulse are stable," he told Bernama when contacted here today.
The veteran politician had warded himself at the Assunta Hospital in Petaling Jaya on Friday night after encountering health problems and was transferred to the Pantai Medical Centre here yesterday morning.
Balakrishnan also said that Subramaniam was taken straight to the intensive care unit (ICU) and that he still remained unconscious after the surgery.
"We are still waiting for his recovery," he said.
Subramaniam is a former member of parliment for Segamat (1990 to 2004) and a former deputy minister.
