Mamata's condition stable, she is resting: Doctors

April 11, 2013 11:20 IST

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who was admitted to a private clinic in Kolkata after she complained of breathing problems and palpitation, is in a stable condition, doctors attending to her said on Thursday.

"The chief minister is stable and she is now resting in our clinic under the observation of a 10-member medical team led by Dr Subrata Moitra," said Belle Vue Clinic Chief Executive Officer K Tandon.

"But she is under close monitoring," he added

Tandon said some tests, including MRI, CT scan and blood examinations, had already been conducted and some more tests were likely to take place on Thursday.

Banerjee was admitted to the clinic shortly after she returned from Delhi on Wednesday. She was driven straight to the clinic from the airport.

The decision to admit her was taken after the chief minister complained of pain in both shoulder joints, neck, back and left knee joints.

Banerjee was examined on Tuesday by doctors at AIIMS in Delhi who advised her to get admitted for observation.

Members of the Student’s Federation of India had blocked the chief minister's passage in the Planning Commission in Delhi on Tuesday and manhandled state Finance Minister Amit Mitra while they were going to attend a meeting.

The chief minister subsequently fell ill and was administered oxygen, while Mitra was put under observation at AIIMS.
