Jyoti Basu's condition stable; suffering from slight pneumonia.
Kolkata, Jan 2 (ANI): CPM leader and former West Bengal Chief Minister Jyoti Basu's health condition is reported to be stable.
Basu is being treated for pneumonia at a private hospital in Kolkata.
"Basu's condition is more or less stable and doctors are trying to check his pneumonic infection," said physician A K Maity.
It would take some time for him to recover, he added.
The 95-year old veteran leader was admitted to Apollo Gleneagles hospital here on Friday following a severe chest infection.
The doctors after conducting a proper check-up had detected that Basu was suffering from slight pneumonia.
Earlier in July, Basu was admitted to the hospital complaining of discomfort in the abdomen and a disturbed sleep. (ANI)
