Picture of the meeting went viral on social media on Thursday. However, what didn't sit well with the public was that when Mandaviya went to meet Singh, photos were taken when Singh is ill and recovering. Many people called the photographs and the act of having a photographer inside a hospital room insensitive.

Here's what people are saying. Have a look.

Manmohan Singh is getting the treatment by a team of doctors under the guidance of Dr Nitish Nayak. He had developed a fever two days ago and was feeling weak before being rushed to AIIMS. The source at AIIMS said that he was also complaining of neck pain.

The former PM had tested positive for Covid infection in April this year during the second Covid surge and had been admitted to the AIIMS.
