Former Lok Sabha speaker Somnath Chatterjee suffered a hemorrhagic stroke.
He was rushed soon after to the Kolkata’s Belle Vue hospital.
It is said that the leader was admitted to the hospital on Monday.
“It was a hemorrhagic stroke with a medium size clot, which is ordinary. But it is dangerous for a patient aged 89 years,” informed hospital sources.
A former member of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), Somnath Chatterjee is currently an independent candidate.
He served as Speaker of Lok Sabha from 2004 to 2009.>
