April 13, 2013 16:49 IST

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was clinically better on Saturday and her vital parameters had stabilised, a medical bulletin issued from Belle Vue clinic said.

However, the CM was still in pain in spite of medications and other supportive care, it said.

The medical team has advised her to take rest for at least wo weeks either in the hospital or at home.

A 10-member team headed by Dr Subroto Maitra was attending on the chief minister since her admission on Wednesday with complaints of breathing problem, palpitation and acute pain in the shoulder, waist and knee joints after her return from Delhi.

Doctors said that there was slight improvement in her blood pressure, but her pulse rate was low on Friday.

The chief minister was obstructed from entering Yojna Bhavan building in New Delhi on April 9 by activists of the Student’s Federation of India during an agitation and her Finance Minister Amit Mitra was heckled.

Banerjee subsequently fell ill and was administered oxygen while Mitra was put under observation at AIIMS.
