Mamata’s condition stable, advised total rest
West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, who was hospitalised after complaints of breathing problem and palpitation, has been advised total rest by doctors who described her condition today as stable.

Doctors at the premier Belle Vue clinic, where Banerjee is undergoing treatment, said she had pain in her shoulder and waist and was under close surveillance with an advice not to do any official work for the time being.

The chief minister was admitted with complaints of palpitation, breathing trouble and acute joint pain in shoulder and waist shortly after her return from Delhi on Wednesday.

‘She is stable but under continuous monitoring by doctors. She was administered oxygen last night as per requirement. Her pulse rate is low and palpitation is there,’ Dr Subroto Moitra, head of the 10-member medical team attending her, told reporters.

He said Banerjee had undergone several investigations and MRI and CT scan reports were expected tomorrow. She had problems on her left knee and was suffering from pain, for which she was given medicines and sedatives.

Doctor said she had some problems in her waist which would be cured by physiotherapy.

Clinic chief executive officer P K Tondon said the chief minister was resting and her condition was stable. But she was under close monitoring.

Tondon said some tests including MRI, CT scan and blood examinations had been done and some more tests were likely to be carried out.

Before leaving for Kolkata, she was examined on Tuesday by doctors at the AIIMS in Delhi who advised her to get admitted for observation.

The chief minister was obstructed from entering Yojna Bhavan building in New Delhi on Tuesday by SFI activists during an agitation and her finance minister Amit Mitra was heckled.
