Veteran Left leader continues to be critical

Kolkata, Feb 4 (IANS) Critically-ill All India Forward Bloc leader Ashok Ghosh on Saturday continued to be on ventilator support in a city hospital, doctors said.

“He continues to be on ventilator support, but haemodynamically stable. He still remains critical and prognosis-guarded,” hospital superintendent Partho Bhattacharya said.

“The first session of haemodialysis was done on Friday and he continues to be on broad spectrum antibiotics, in line nebulisation with nutrition maintained by ryles tube feeding,” added the doctor.

The 94-year-old Ghosh, the senior-most Left Front leader in West Bengal, was on Tuesday rushed to the hospital following lower respiratory tract infection.

Ghosh has for decades been the secretary of the West Bengal unit of the party, which was founded by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.
