“He is on Ryles tube feeding and swallow assessment is being done. His overall clinical status remains stable,” it said.

A medical board member said that since Bhattacharjee is having a loss of appetite, the dependence on Ryles tube for the purpose of feeding is continuing.

On Saturday, CPI-M politburo member Dr Suryankanta Mishra, who is himself a qualified medical practitioner and the party’s state secretary in West Bengal Mohd Salim went to the hospital to meet the former Chief Minister.

“He is in a much better medical condition now. He is replying favourably to the ongoing treatment. Much of the crisis has been resolved. I had spoken to him. I wish he will get completely cured soon,” Mishra told newspersons while leaving the hospital.
