Kolkata: West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi is keeping unwell and for this he today received outpatient treatment in two hospitals in Kolkata.

The 84-year-old Governor got up from bed today morning with a nagging chest pain and breathing trouble. As the pain persisted, at the advice of his resident doctor, Tripathi was taken from Raj Bhavan to a private nursing home at Minto Park in central Kolkata.

After a basic health check-up that included blood pressure and some blood tests at the private facility, the Governor then went to the state-run SSKM Hospital. There, he underwent a health check-up in the cardiology department including an ECG and Echo.

During the check-up, although the doctors did not find any anomaly in the functioning of his heart, they discovered that there was a slight swelling in his legs. This made the doctors subject him to urea, creatinine, uric acid, and other related tests as they suspect a renal disorder.

After the check-up and the tests, the Governor walked up to his car without support. He told reporters that there is nothing much to worry and that he had come for a routine check-up.

Last year July, Tripathi was briefly hospitalised in Patna after he was taken ill during a visit to the Bihar state capital.
