Rocard, 76, fell ill minutes before attending an event organised by the West Bengal Government on June 30 and was immediately rushed to the Calcutta Medical Research Institute (CMRI) Hospital.

A brain scan revealed a blood clot and he was rushed into surgery after a hurriedly called conference with French doctors in Paris.

Rocard is scheduled to leave for France later this week in a special aircraft flown in from Paris.

Rocard, an elder statesman of French centre-left politics, arrived in India last month at the invitation of the State Government.
