Ex-Speaker Somnath Chatterjee stable but critical after heart attack
Kolkata Aug 12 (IANS) Former Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee who was hospitalised in a critical condition last week suffered a heart attack on Sunday morning a hospital official said.
"Chatterjee suffered a heart attack at the hospital this morning. His condition is now stable but critical. He is undergoing dialysis " said Pradip Tondon CEO of Bellevue Clinic.
The veteran Left leader has been put on ventilator support at the city nursing home since last Tuesday following a kidney-related ailment.
The 89-year-old was earlier admitted to the nursing home on June 25 after suffering a haemorrhagic stroke.
He underwent treatment for 40 days and was discharged just for three days after his health showed signs of improvement. However he was re-admitted after his condition deteriorated last Tuesday the officer said.
Chatterjee regarded as an outstanding parliamentarian served as the Lok Sabha Speaker from 2004 to 2009.
The 10-time Lok Sabha member was expelled from the Communist Party of India-Marxist on July 23 2008 "for seriously compromising the position of the party" as he refused to resign as the Speaker after the CPI-M withdrew support to the first United Progressive Alliance government over the India-US civil nuclear deal.
