Doctors, attending on him at the private hospital, said the Minister was stable but required further investigations and observation. Mr. Dasmunsi, who was returning from Malda after attending a party meeting, complained of breathlessness on the way to Raiganj. He was immediately admitted to a local hospital where a five-member team of doctors attended on him.
''He has been shifted here for better treatment. He had some problem of indigestion. He also developed a minor cardiac problem,'' Pradesh Congress Vice President Subrata Mukherjee said.
Mr. Dasmunsi's wife and Congress legislator Deepa Dasmunshi, a medical team and some other party leaders accompanied him from Raiganj.
A medical unit was ready at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International airport to meet any emergencies.
Congress sources said officials at the prime minister's office were monitoring Mr. Dasmunshi's condition.
