Prime Minister Narendra Modi called up BCCI President Saurav Ganguly on Sunday to inquire about his health. Ganguly who suffered from heart pain and mild heart attack on Saturday went under emergency angioplasty.

Ganguly is recovering in the hospital and stable now. Narendra Modi also spoke with his wife Dona and offered all help. A 10 member committee formed to supervise his treatment will consult cardiac experts from around the country on Monday to decide if the 48-year-old requires further surgical intervention at this moment.

After being diagnosed with triple-vessel disease Ganguly underwent an angioplasty, a condition which is triggered by narrowing of coronary arteries due to plaque blockages, one of which was removed on Saturday.

CEO of Woodlands Hospital where Ganguly is admitted Rupali Basu said, “We have decided to consult the best experts across the country before arriving at a decision to conduct a procedure for the other two blocks. All his reports and a recording of the angioplasty will be sent to the doctors for their opinion. We have also consulted Ganguly’s family and they have agreed to go by the decision of the experts.”

Ganguly has no co-morbidity and has tested negative for COVID-19. His pulse rate, blood pressure and respiratory rate are normal. “Treating doctors are keeping a constant vigil on his condition and taking appropriate measures from time to time.”
