Kolkata: Former West Bengal chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee was discharged from the hospital on Tuesday.

He was admitted at a hospital for almost a week following breathing troubles.

He will now have to remain on non- invasive ventilation (BIPAP) support, undergo physiotherapy and follow restrictions on movement at home, besides sticking to a prescribed diet, doctors said.

The veteran communist leader was admitted to a private hospital in Calcutta on December 9 and put on mechanical ventilator support at its critical care unit, after his breathing-related problems escalated.

A senior hospital official said a makeshift ICU has been set up at his home, where a critical care expert and medicine specialist will monitor his health.

Bhattacharjee, who served as CM of Bengal from the year 2000 to 2011, has been suffering from COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and other old age-related ailments for some time.
