The condition of ailing All India Forward Bloc leader Ashok Ghosh has improved although he continues to be critical, doctors said on Thursday.
The 94 - year - old Ghosh, the senior - most Left Front leader in West Bengal, was on February 2 rushed to a hospital following lower respiratory tract infection.
"Ghosh. . . is conscious, haemodynamically stable and obeying commands, " the hospital said in a statement, adding that he was on oral feed.
However, he still remains critical, the statement added.
He was taken off ventilatory support on Wednesday.
Ghosh has for decades now been the secretary of the West Bengal unit of the party founded by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.
