Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, who was admitted to AIIMS following complaints of nasal congestion, was discharged on Thursday, PTI said.

He was shifted out of the ICU on Wednesday, hospital sources said.

The Union Law and Justice minister was admitted to the pulmonary medicine department Monday.

Prasad is the second seniormost leader of the BJP government who had taken ill recently. BJP president Amit Shah was diagnosed with Swine Flu and was admitted to AIIMS on Wednesday, while finance minister Arun Jaitley is in the US for treatments.

Shah's condition is said to be stable, and he is likely to be released soon. Jaitley is expected to return India on 25 January.
