BCCI President and former Indian cricket captain Sourav Ganguly will be discharged from the hospital tomorrow, said Woodlands Hospital, Kolkata.
Dr Rupali Basu, the MD & CEO of Woodlands Hospital said that Ganguly will be monitored at home on a daily basis. She said he will be ready for the next course of procedures or medical intervention after about 2-3 weeks.
Cardiac surgeon Dr Devi Shetty, who came to Kolkata on Tuesday morning to see the former Indian skipper also said that the former batting great is stable and can now be discharged from the hospital.
Ganguly had suffered a sudden blackout following mild chest pain during a workout session at his Behala residence on Saturday. He had been moved to Kolkata’s Woodlands Hospital that day itself where he underwent angioplasty.
A medical team, led by state-run SSKM Hospital’s cardiology department head Dr Saroj Mondal is currently looking after Ganguly’s health check-ups at the hospital.
Was Sourav Ganguly under pressure to join politics?
Senior CPI (M) leader Ashok Bhattacharya who has been a longtime family friend of BCCI President and former cricketer Sourav Ganguly, has claimed that Ganguly was under pressure to join politics which probably exerted pressure on him.
Some people wanted to use Ganguly politically. That probably exerted pressure on him. He is not a political element. He should be known as Sourav the sporting icon,” Bhattacharya was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
