Kolkata, 7th September: Former Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya was admitted to a city hospital on Friday night after he complained of an acute breathing problem.
It has been reported that the 75-year-old leader has been suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) for quite some time. Upon receiving the news of his illness, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee rushed to the hospital and spoke to the doctors there about Bhattacharya's health. West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar also visited the hospital.
Fortunately, the hospital officials informed that the former Chief Minister's health is stable at the moment and there is no cause of concern yet.
"When I first saw him, he was definitely serious. Now he has revived. He managed sitting on the bed. He is stable now. He requires blood because his hemoglobin is low. He is in the ICCU. I want him to get well soon and return home quickly," Mamata Banerjee said after coming out of the hospital.
