Indian politician Mamata Banerjee injured during election campaign

Chief Minister of the Indian state of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee's health condition is stable after she got injured during poll campaigning at Nandigram, said doctors. Doctors said that her improvement is satisfactory and she is responding well to treatment, said doctors at the state-run SSKM hospital in Kolkata.

As per a report in PTI, doctors said that swelling on Banerjee's left ankle has subsided and she is feeling less pain in her neck, shoulder and waist.

"Our team will review her condition. They may cut open the temporary plaster on her left leg to see how the injury has healed. A few medical tests might also be conducted," a senior doctor told PTI.

"We generally advise patients with similar injuries as that of Banerjee at least three to four weeks of rest," the doctor said.

The 66-year-old chief minister will try out different kinds of wheelchairs soon, he added.

Doctor added that the team would be assessing her health condition on Friday and will take a call over when to discharge her from the hospital.
