New Delhi: The condition of veteran journalist Vinod Dua continues to be “extremely critical and fragile”, her daughter, actor-comic Mallika Dua.
The 67-year-old journalist, a pioneer in broadcast Hindi journalism with stints in Doordarshan and NDTV, was last night moved to the Intensive Care Unit of Apollo Hospital on the advice of doctors at the premises.
Mallika Dua on her Instagram wrote, “My Papaji (Father) was moved to the Apollo Hospital ICU last night where he can be cared for better. He remains extremely critical and fragile. He has been a fighter his entire life. Uncompromising and relentless. His family is the same when it comes to him,”
Vinod Dua lost her wife Chinna Dua earlier in June during the second wave. As news of his ill-health spread, fake news that he had passed away and some people even posted condolence messages erupted on social media which later were clarified by her daughter to delete. Dua’s health has been down since he suffered from Coronavirus.
Vinod Dua is a staunch opposer of BJP and its leader. He regularly gets hate on Social Media due to his views. This is a reason despite being a major face in Journalism. None of the leaders of government has questioned him.
