Angioplasty was conducted on Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Priya Ranjan Dasmunshi today to clear two heart blockages at Apollo Gleneagles Hospital, Kolkata.
However, authorities said his condition is stated to be stable. He is still on liquid diet.
The Minister underwent angioplasty after he was diagnosed with acute coronary syndrome caused by coronary artery disease revealed by a subsequent angiogram.
The 62-year-old Minister fell ill and complained of chest pain while travelling to Raigunj, his constituency, from Malda on Sunday.
